Alvarez Elite Masterworks Series

Alvarez Elite Masterworks are handmade professional guitars of impeccable quality. They have been designed as a “guitar for life” – instruments that will stand the test of time and bring endless player satisfaction and reliability.

Every guitar is made from naturally seasoned, high grade, all solid tone wood that is worked by professional luthiers to generate awesome tone and response. Each brace is hand carved and each top optimized for performance. The FST2 bracing system is a forward shifted X-brace design with considerate scalloping to the main braces and the asymmetric tone bars.

The sound is open, warm and powerful with great projection. They are also very balanced instruments offering real punch in the bass and equally lively sparkle in the upper registers. This allows the player to access the whole tonal range needed for all styles of music and playing.

Elite Masterworks also have the Alvarez bi-level bridge. This system significantly increases the break angle from the saddle to the top. This increased down pressure raises string tension, giving the guitar a very responsive feel and adding quality to its volume and sustain.

Handmade in Japan, Elite Masterworks demonstrate perfect build quality, attention to detail and passion for guitar building and design. Truly exquisite guitars on every level.
