The ‘66 models are beautifully finished and have a deep glass-like shine. Our Shadowburst on Mahogany brings out the grain to create a warm look to match its tone. Our mahogany top guitars have a focused sound with strong mids, great for recording and live work.
This acoustic electric model is fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element pick up to optimize live performance.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of our culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Our tone woods are carefully cured; our components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques we use are continually researched and developed, and our tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.
