The entry-level guitar. Redefined.

The Alvarez Regent Series is a high quality entry-level guitar line designed to provide value instruments with many features and specifications you’ll find in pro-level Alvarez models.

Components such as our bi-level bridge, scalloped bracing and PPS synthetic bone nut and saddle work together to generate great response and dynamic tonal capability, giving you a great overall playing experience, time after time.

The guitars have a classic look with a quality, high gloss finish and are made from traditional tonewood configurations and high-grade components. Regent Series has been designed with the student in mind, with a slightly slimmer neck profile and nut, making it very easy to hold and fret.

Regent Series gives new players an unforgettable experience with a guitar that is fun to play and sounds great. We ship all Regents in a quality gig bag so you can bring your guitar to lessons, practice, or even your first gig.

Whether you’re ready to travel, hit the beach or laze around the house, small body acoustic guitars can be the perfect companion, which is one reason demand never seems to slow. With a few tweaks and careful design, small body guitars can sound fantastic and much louder and balanced than you might think.

The LJ2 is a fantastic “Little Jumbo” with wonderful projection and balance, now available with a cutaway in our flawless Shadowburst finish. It’s made with high-grade solid Sitka top and is carefully designed to get the best out of its small body while staying clear and balanced. Many small-bodied guitars will have a “tubby” or “muddy” voicing. We’ve managed to give the voice clarity, balance and volume, making it a fun instrument to play and a great travel companion.

The LJ2CESHB is fitted with the SYS250 EQ with backlit tuner and ships with our AGB15 deluxe Alvarez gig bag.

About Artist Series

Our multi-award winning Artist Series represents our commitment to quality and design, making it one of the finest solid top guitar lines in the world today.

Artist Series feel right and are exciting to play; whether you are strumming hard or picking lightly, the guitar will do what you ask of it. For a more focused sound with fewer overtones, choose a mahogany top. For a more open projection, go for Sitka. For warmth and response to a lighter touch, choose a Cedar top.

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. While top quality improves as you move up the Artist Series models, all are stiff and finely grained.

After 55 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 tonewoods 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 soundbox.

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” refers to the guitar’s soundboard being made of solid wood rather than laminates. However, even when the guitar top is made of solid wood, the tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include our FS6 bracing design, which allows the soundbox to sing and brings uniformity across Dreadnought, Grand Auditorium, OM and Parlor body sizes. This means the voicing has a similar character, but the individual tone is more purely influenced by the size and shape of the guitar.

Our bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response. Real bone nut and saddle, premium tonewoods, and our crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction and positively impact the performance of the instrument. Artist Series gloss models have a clear deep shine from a finish that is applied as thinly as possible to optimize tone. The personality and voicing of Artist Series is open, dynamic and instantly responsive.

Thank you for choosing Alvarez.

The sound of a 12-string is unmistakable, but 12 strings on a neck can make it a challenge for some players. There is a lot of tension and the nut width is generally wider. That’s why we created the Alvarez 8-string, bringing you 12-string shimmer with less tension and a standard width neck and nut.

We double up on the G (3rd) and D (4th) strings and it’s quite amazing how much 12-string shimmer you can get from just adding these two octaves. It also makes this guitar great fun for lots of exploration, and the octave tones when fingerpicking add a little extra dimension and charm.

The AG 8-string has a superbly open and resonant voicing and instant response. This is a beautiful looking guitar with a flawless deep shine, thin poly Shadowburst finish, North American Sitka spruce top and fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element Pickup.
