Product Description

The Alvarez Artist 80 series 12 string electro acoustic is built to the highest quality and optimised for powerful, chiming 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 combination of solid Sitka Spruce top and Maple body and neck produce a lively, punchy and crisp 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 Artist series 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. Solid premium diecast tuners keeps 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 12-String Design

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!
