The Alvarez Jazz & Blues Series delivers genre specific instruments to capture the very essence of American music history. Body shapes, bracings and constructions were carefully considered before opening molds for our body shapes and finalizing specifications.

Alvarez Blues guitars have a vintage vibe all the way with a small rectangle bridge, V profile neck, 2 ¼” string spacing and back shifted bracing to make these smaller bodied guitars feel and sound just right.

Tonally they deliver the compressed bluesy bark expected from such a design but the refined back shifted, scalloped bracing adds more openness for a slightly more modern style projection.

The Delta 00 has a 14th fret neck join to the body, grained ivoroid binding and a perfect vintage burst. It’s a responsive guitar and although suited more towards finger style it can handle open chord strumming in its stride. This acoustic electric model features the fantastic LR Baggs Element pick up, VTC system to optimize live performance.

After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of our culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Our tone woods are carefully cured; our components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques we use are continually researched and developed, and our tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.

This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic 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 optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate.

Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include our designed bracing systems, real bone nuts and saddles, great quality tone woods and thin finish.

All of our tops are selected by our team and graded independently of our suppliers. If it isn’t worthy, we won’t use it.

Like all Alvarez guitars, Jazz & Blues demonstrate our great finishing capabilities; the gloss models have a clear deep shine from a finish that is applied as thinly as possible, again to help optimize tone.

Thank you for choosing Alvarez.
