Alvarez Grand Auditorium 8-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar AG60-8CESHB

Sale price $ 499.99 Regular price $ 739.00

The sound of a 12-String is wonderful and unmistakable, but 12-strings on a neck can make it somewhat challenging for some players. There is a lot of tension and the nut width is generally wider – Introducing the Alvarez 8-string, 12 string shimmer with less tension and a standard width neck and nut –

We double up on the G (3rd) and D (4th) strings and it’s quite amazing how much 12 string shimmer you get from just adding these two octaves. It also makes this guitar great fun for lots of exploration and the octave tones when fingerpicking add a little extra dimension and charm.

The AG 8-string has a superbly open and resonant voicing and instant response. It’s a beautiful looking guitar with a flawless deep shine, thin poly Shadowburst finish, North American Sitka spruce top and fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element Pick Up.
