Alvarez AC65 Acoustic Classical Guitar

$457.00 $457.00

Alvarez has been one of the leading acoustic guitar brands in the U.S.A. and around the world for nearly 50 years. Its image is synonymous with quality and innovation. Alvarez instruments are known for their tone and feel and some of the most amazing artists over the last five decades have gravitated towards the brand and its guitars.

Alvarez was established in 1965 by St. Louis Music. In the late 60’s the company began working with Master Luthier, Kazuo Yairi. This collaboration turned out to be a remarkable success and Alvarez-Yairi guitars are still handmade in the Yairi factory today, in the small town of Kani, Japan.

The bond between SLM and Yairi is underpinned by a desire to produce some of the finest guitars in the world. Their instruments are a mix of tradition and innovation, and the culture is continual development and improvement. You’ll find this attitude evident in all their guitars from Regent Series to Masterworks, so at each price point true value and quality is found.

The result of that hard work has lead to Alvarez and Yairi guitars being played by amazing musicians such as Joe Bonamassa, Bono, Johnny Cash, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Ani DiFranco, Jerry Garcia, Paul McCartney, Monte Montgomery, Carlos Santana, Bob Weir, Thom Yorke and so many more. And of course by the hundreds of thousands of amateur and professional musicians around the world.

Product Description

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.

Artist Series is now “The Award Winning Artist Series” – winning competitions and receiving rave reviews in the States, Europe and around the world. It’s a truly designed line of guitars that stands tall and sounds sweet in the solid top guitar market.

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.

New Artist Series guitars look stunning and come in a huge variety of shapes, colors and wood choices from standard OM and Dreadnought models to more specialist instruments such as Baritone and Parlor. Each shape is also available in a left-handed version.
