Body and neck
High-quality materials and clever design result in a reliable, well-balanced classical guitar. The combination of a solid Red Cedar top and Mahogany body and neck produce a lively, responsive and warm tone. The Pau Ferro fingerboard adds to the great sound and smooth playability.
At the forefront of design is its traditional Spanish fan system bracing. It allows for balance and volume across all six strings. The Spanish heel neck joint has been carefully designed for stability and consistency. Alvarez have also been conscious of the gloss finish. They’ve used a 50/50 gloss and satin finish on the neck, so you get the best of both worlds. And over the body they’ve kept it as thin as possible to keep the sound lively whilst offering protection from wear.
The Artist 60 uses the excellent LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element pickup to provide clear and versatile amplifier capabilities. When playing at larger venues, the LR Baggs system provides optimal tone transfer into an amp discreetly. And there are no obvious appearance changes, as the pickup and EQ are placed discreetly to not spoil the classy look of the instrument.
It gets the best out of its components too. The real bone nut adds plenty of sustain and reliability. It kills all fret buzz so the projected sound is as smooth as ever. Chrome open gear tuners keep tuning stable in tandem with the nut. The bridge is made of Pau Ferro to match the neck and allow for comfortable hand placement over extended periods of time.
The Classical Design
Classical guitars are defined by their use of nylon strings and often smaller bodies than their steel-string counterparts. While being a popular contemporary instrument, it’s known for its use in the Classical field, as the name suggests; its soothing but dynamic sound is instantly recognisable.
Combining modern manufacture techniques with unique tonewood treatments, Alvarez Classical instruments are truly world-class. Committed to uncompromising quality and simultaneous affordability, Alvarez travelled to Cádiz in Andalusia – the spiritual home of the Classical guitar – to learn the instruments inside and out. The result is a range of nylon-string acoustics that are among the best on the market.
