    Product Description

    The Alvarez Artist Parlour is an acoustic built to the highest quality and optimised for precise, focused 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 all-Mahogany body and neck combination produces a mids-heavy, 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 kept the coating over the body as thin as possible to keep the sound lively whilst offering protection from wear. 

    Hardware

    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 die-cast tuners keep tuning stable in tandem with the nut.

    The bridge is made of Rosewood to match the neck and allow for comfortable hand placement over extended periods of time.

    The Parlour Design

    Originally invented as a low-cost alternative to larger guitars, Parlour models were extremely popular in the late 1800’s early 1900’s, as it meant more people could afford a guitar. Nowadays, these compact guitars are loved by musicians that spend their time on the road or just don’t have space for a larger bodied acoustic.

    Combining modern manufacture techniques with unique tonewood treatments, Alvarez Parlour acoustics tick all of the boxes that put the Parlour design on the map. A slim, compact body shape, 12th-fret neck-joint, and a concise but articulate acoustic sound.
