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 '30 Series all sport Solid A+ Sitka Spruce tops and Mahogany backs and sides.
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.
