Alvarez AF60SHB Artist OM/Folk Acoustic in ShadowburstSolid A+ Sitka Spruce Top & Mahogany Body
The Alvarez Artist OM is an acoustic built to the highest quality and optimised for precise, powerful sound.
After 50 years of making guitars, the American-based company have packed all their knowledge into building the finest solid top instruments in the world today.
Body and neck
High quality materials and clever design result in a reliable, well-balanced guitar. The Sitka Spruce body and Mahogany neck, back and sides combination produces a rich, punchy and warm tone.
At the forefront of design is its FST2 X bracing, meaning the X is closer to the sound hole. So more energy and vibrations are harnessed through the woods of the guitar. A Rosewood fingerboard adds to the great tone and smooth playability.
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 real bone nut adds plenty of sustain and reliability. It kills all fret buzz so the projected sound is as smooth as ever. Solid premium diecast tuners keep tuning stable in tandem with the nut.
The bridge is made of a bi-level Rosewood to match the neck and allow for comfortable hand placement over extended periods of time.
The OM Design
OM stands for Orchestra Model. This design took influence from small-bodied 0 and 00, adopting a similarly slim, rounded design but with an increase in overall size. This ensures an accessible, comfortable playing experience but adds plenty more depth to the sound.
Combining modern manufacture techniques with unique tonewood treatments, Alvarez OM acoustics give you an authentic tone with a focused midrange, perfect for folky strumming and soft fingerpicking styles.
