Alvarez Artist Elite Series Guitars

With one of the most diverse & comprehensive instrument catalogues on the market, Alvarez are considered a leading name in the industry – and we’re thrilled to be stocking them at Andertons Music Co!

The Artist Elite range is a relatively new addition to the Alvarez line up. It takes the Artist formula and steps it up a notch, with a number of additional appointments that offer the perfect blend of pro playability, lush sounds and great looks to boot.

First up, the tonewoods. Alvarez have opted to use some slightly different mixtures, including Cedar tops, Macassar Ebony back/sides and Acacia. They've also thrown a couple of their subtle semi-gloss finishes, perfectly complementing the wood's grain. Additional luxurious include Flamed Maple and Ebony binding and Alvarez's signature bevelled armrests. Finally, a backward shift in the X-bracing producers a warmer, darker sound that's more midrange focused, making these guitars brilliant strummers.

All things considered, the combination of innovative design, solid tonewoods and affordable price tags makes Alvarez guitars great alternatives to many leading Taylor, Martin and Gibson models.
