Alvarez Artist Series AP70E Acoustic / Electric Parlor Guitar

Alvarez Artist Series AP70E Acoustic / Electric Parlor Guitar

Regular price $ 739.00 Sale price $ 499.99

The Artist Series is Alvarez' mid-range offering, with professional-level features like hand-selected solid-wood tops, proprietary FST2M bracing and a bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tone woods - at a budget-conscious price.

The solid ‘A’ grade Sitka spruce tops of the '70 series 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. Combine this with stunningly warm rosewood back and sides for a rolling, open tone.

The built-in SYS550 electronics package designed by B-BAND is a pro level EQ and pick up that reproduces the sound of the instrument very closely with great clarity. B-BAND use a patented under saddle electret film pick up which eliminates synthetic or processed sounds often heard with Piezo or other styles of pickup. The result is a very true, acoustic sound. SYS550 also has an accurate, backlit chromatic digital tuner.

All of the components are made of natural materials such as mother of pearl and abalone inlays, real bone saddles and nuts and rosewood appointments.

Case sold separately.
