The AG70ce Black is a beautifully responsive Grand Auditorium guitar delivering glistening trebles and a robust, clear bass response that makes this guitar suitable for most styles of music and playing. It has an understated elegance with striking contrast between the natural AA Sitka top and dark Indian rosewood back and sides. The bevel armrest is also made from Rosewood, which lets it blend into the guitar’s aesthetic, while adding a level of sophistication to the overall look of the guitar.

The AEG70ce is fitted with the LR Baggs StagePro Bronze. The StagePro Bronze is a small-footprint side-mounted EQ incorporating the renowned LR Baggs Element under-saddle pickup. This is a low-profile unit with a large backlit tuner, volume, bass and treble controls and phase. The battery box is built into the end pin jack compartment for easy access with a simple push to open and change batteries.

About Artist Series

Alvarez Artist Series represents our commitment to quality and care. Our goal is to create an instant bond between you and your guitar through meticulous design in bracing, voicing and overall construction. Every component—from our bi-level bridge to our solid bridge plates and neck blocks—is carefully considered to deliver the best response possible from solid-top construction.

Artist Series guitars are responsive with impressive projection and balance that make them both rewarding and inspiring to play.

With a huge selection of body shapes and wood configurations, Artist Series has a guitar for everyone. For a more focused, woody tone, choose a Mahogany top. For a broader, more open projection, choose Sitka. For a warm response to a lighter, melodic touch, choose Cedar.

Our Approach to the Build

All of our solid tops are selected by our team and graded independently of our suppliers. If it isn’t worthy, it isn’t used. Our laminated backs and sides are uniquely constructed with Mahogany as our middle layer, and our inner and outer layers are always matched.

Artist guitars strike the right balance between strength and vibration, crafting a voice to both inspire and give players “tools in the tone.” Alongside this approach to development lies our respect for sourcing, preparation and nurturing the wood we use to make our guitars. No matter how considered design may be, it can only be as good as the wood we use to realize them.

Our all-solid wood tops, backs and sides, as well as the mahogany used for our necks, go through a curing process developed over years to create stability, strength and tonal benefits. Depending on the wood and its use, this process takes many months or even years for some of our models.

After months-long seasoning, we perform an extra drying stage in thermo-kilns to further enhance wood stability and improve resonance. We call this process ATR—Advanced Tonal Response. ATR™ is a form of torrefaction—oxygen controlled, vacuum curing at special temperatures to remove more moisture and volatiles such as saps and sugars from the wood.

This does two things:

  • ATR™ makes our wood more stable when exposed to adverse dry or humid climates. While we can’t stop the effects of dryness or moisture saturation that can damage guitars, ATR™ goes a long way in helping our guitars become more resilient. Guitars will move or change according to the environment they are in and are more likely to move within the first two years from their production. A guitar usually becomes drier as it ages; this is one of the reasons why players often like the sound of an older guitar. ATR™ advances the natural, post-build drying process so the wood behaves as if it were more mature, stable, and resonant from the first day it is used.
  • The effects of ATR™ are also audible in the instrument. The biggest difference is the clarity and separation between notes and the overall response of the guitar. As the top is drier, it’s also quicker, more resonant, more open, even louder. New guitars can sometimes take time to reach this state as the wood dries over the years. ATR accelerates this effect to deliver a more sophisticated and complex voicing from day one.

Our caring approach to development comes from one unwavering goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point—instruments of a truly remarkable value that offer an unparalleled player experience.

Tuned from B to B, the ABT60 is pitched between a dreadnought and acoustic bass, giving you deep, sonorous tones. Providing easy playability, chord shapes and scales on this baritone are the same as a standard six-string, only with a lower voicing.

A baritone unlocks new sonic worlds to players at any point in their musical journey, helping you to approach your music in a distinctive way. Baritones are exciting instruments to explore new sounds or accompany vocals.

The FST2 bracing finds the perfect harmony between rigidity and vibration, allowing the top to be both driven and controlled by the air volume this guitar creates. Delivering both balance and liveliness, the symmetry is inspiring for every player.

The ABT60 remains one of our best-selling models. This high-demand instrument is now available in several options with a cutaway, Shadowburst, and even 8 strings.

The AJ80ce 12-string Jumbo is a powerhouse guitar of incredible value, and this 12-string model truly sings.

Like all Artist Series guitars, our jumbos are designed to offer a rewarding playing experience. In this model we use our FST2 bracing system which works so well with the amount of air volume a large guitar body produces. The forward shifted pattern with asymmetric scalloped tone bars allows the venation to escape while adding enough stiffness to achieve great clarity, separation and even volume across all six strings.

This cutaway model allows for easy access up the neck and is fitted with the LR Baggs StagePro Bronze. The StagePro Bronze is a small-footprint side-mounted EQ incorporating the renowned LR Baggs Element under-saddle pickup. This is a low-profile unit with a large backlit tuner, volume, bass and treble controls and phase. The battery box is built into the end pin jack compartment for easy access with a simple push to open and change batteries.

Parlor guitars are incredibly comfortable to play due to their size, and they also project very well. Their voicing harks back to the early roots, folk and blues recordings we cherish. Alvarez parlor guitars are all of that and more, due to our FS6 bracing structure which allows the soundboard to produce a response that brings more openness and better dynamics to the instrument’s projection. Our parlors have an impressive volume and openness while still retaining the type of compression and focus a small body guitar is known for, which makes this AP70e a versatile instrument that will handle most style of playing.

The AP70e is fitted with the LR Baggs StagePro Bronze. The StagePro Bronze is a small-footprint side-mounted EQ incorporating the renowned LR Baggs Element under-saddle pickup. This is a low-profile unit with a large backlit tuner, volume, bass and treble controls and phase.

Artist guitars strike the right balance between strength and vibration, crafting a voice to both inspire and give players “tools in the tone.” Alongside this approach to development lies our respect for sourcing, preparation and nurturing the wood we use to make our guitars. No matter how considered design may be, it can only be as good as the wood we use to realize them. 

Our all-solid wood tops, backs and sides, as well as the mahogany used for our necks, go through a curing process developed over years to create stability, strength and tonal benefits. Depending on the wood and its use, this process takes many months or even years for some of our models.

After months-long seasoning, we perform an extra drying stage in thermo-kilns to further enhance wood stability and improve resonance. We call this process ATR—Advanced Tonal Response. ATR™ is a form of torrefaction—oxygen controlled, vacuum curing at special temperatures to remove more moisture and volatiles such as saps and sugars from the wood.

This does two things:

  • ATR™ makes our wood more stable when exposed to adverse dry or humid climates. While we can’t stop the effects of dryness or moisture saturation that can damage guitars, ATR™ goes a long way in helping our guitars become more resilient. Guitars will move or change according to the environment they are in and are more likely to move within the first two years from their production. A guitar usually becomes drier as it ages; this is one of the reasons why players often like the sound of an older guitar. ATR™ advances the natural, post-build drying process so the wood behaves as if it were more mature, stable, and resonant from the first day it is used.

  • The effects of ATR™ are also audible in the instrument. The biggest difference is the clarity and separation between notes and the overall response of the guitar. As the top is drier, it’s also quicker, more resonant, more open, even louder. New guitars can sometimes take time to reach this state as the wood dries over the years. ATR accelerates this effect to deliver a more sophisticated and complex voicing from day one.

Our caring approach to development comes from one unwavering goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point—instruments of a truly remarkable value that offer an unparalleled player experience.

Thank you for choosing Alvarez.

Weighing in at only 3.3lbs (1.53kg) the DeLite is the smallest “proper” guitar we have ever made. This diminutive Delta is simply a delight to play, as its name implies.

The body size is not much larger than a baritone ukulele but it has a long scale and full size 1 ¾” nut, making this a serious little guitar with a very special construction. It’s great for focused, bluesy tones and performs wonderfully when fingerpicked. The Delta Delite E comes complete with a SYS100 EQ system for plugging in.

The Delta DeLite is also the ideal instrument for parents looking for a refined and correctly designed, high-quality guitar for their child.

The DeLite also comes with a super deluxe 15mm duo-foam gig bag, so it’s ready to travel the world.
