ALVAREZ ARTIST SERIES
Alvarez uses traditional style construction for its entire classical guitar line incorporating a Spanish heel neck joint and tapered fan bracing to deliver stability, balance and volume across all six strings. The Artist 65's are very responsive guitars with a warm and open tone.
Due to its narrower nut, radius fingerboard and 14th fret neck joint, this Hybrid feels closer to a steel string than standard classical guitars.
Hand selected solid tops; forward shifted scalloped bracing, awesome tone and player experience....
The term "solid top" of course refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to really release the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.
The solid 'A' grade Sitka spruce and cedar tops are hand selected from quarter-sawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and its no secret better guitars are made from better wood. Our tops not only look great but they are stiff and strong and finely grained.
