The Dreadnought Design

No acoustic range is complete without a Dreadnought. Famed for their rich tones and booming projection, Dreadnoughts remain among the most popular types of acoustic guitars in the world.

Featuring large bodies often with a square-shouldered design, Dreadnoughts offer some of the richest acoustic tones going, with a hefty low-end and plenty of midrange clarity. Combining modern manufacture techniques with unique tonewood treatments, Alvarez Dreadnoughts are guaranteed to provide the full-bodied, resonant tone that you’re after.

12-String 

12-string acoustics offer a uniquely rich, expressive sound. By doubling up each of your 6 strings (either with a unison or octave), you get a thicker harmonic resonance that resembles a chorus effect – this adds heaps of character to strummed chords and plucked arpeggios alike.

Alvarez 12-strings are no exception. Combining modern manufacture techniques with unique tonewood treatments, they offer an articulate richness that has to be heard to be believed. Add a little extra depth to your acoustic playing! Especially with the LR Baggs Element pickup and StagePro EQ to give you the ability to play live with confidence.

About Alvarez

Established in 1965 by major US instrument distributor St. Louis Music, Alvarez teamed up with master luthier Kazuo Yairi with the aim of producing the finest guitars in the world. The success of Alvarez-Yairi guitars helped put the brand on the market, and are still handmade in Kani, Japan to this day. In the decades that followed, Alvarez significantly expanded their operation, and now produce one of the most extensive and diverse ranges of acoustic instruments in the world.

Ranging from affordable entry-level to world-class handmade instruments, Alvarez have got everything covered. Their instruments have been used by the likes of Johnny Cash, Paul McCartney, Carlos Santana, Ani DiFranco and many more – they’re obviously doing something right!
