Celebrating 50 years of great guitar making with an OM/Folk guitar with old school charm.
2015 finds Alvarez Guitars celebration a half century of refined and ever-evolving craftsmanship. To mark this milestone achievement, Alvarez has created the AFA1965, part of their 1965 Series, a gorgeous line of guitars that exemplify everything they’ve learned over the years in terms of sound, aesthetics and affordability.
"We want every guitarist and Alvarez enthusiast to be able to join us in this 50 Year Celebration," said Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music. "Very often commemorative guitars are so expensive that they’re out of reach to the everyday player. Our goal with the 1965s was to create a line with beautiful appointments and tone, but make them as accessible as possible."
The APA1965 OM/Folk is made with premium solid spruce top, a beautiful Acacia back and sides, and handcrafted Paua abalone purfling. Other appointments include mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays, premium die-cast tuners and a bi-level rosewood bridge.
