Alvarez Unveils the LJ2 “Little Jumbo” at Winter NAMM

Posted on January 22, 2017

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Alvarez has upgraded one of its most unique and compact models and is thrilled to introduce the LJ2 “Little Jumbo” guitar. The LJ2 is an enhanced version of the previous model, the LJ60, and will be debuting at Winter NAMM 2017.

“We’re inspired every year to maintain a state of continual improvement,” says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music. “For 2017 we revisited the design of our LJ60 and have released the LJ2, which is louder, more responsive, more articulate, and one of the best travel guitars on the market.”

The LJ2 features a unique jumbo shape in miniature, and has a carefully designed bracing and arched back to give a clear and balanced voicing. The LJ2 features a solid A+ grade Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany backs and sides, and a natural satin finish. The LJ2 comes complete with a 15mm duo-foam deluxe gig bag.

Visit the St Louis Music booth to experience the LJ2. To learn more about Alvarez go to www.alvarezguitars.com or call +1 314-727-1191.
