Impressive volume and projection in a compact acoustic-electric package.

This AF70 Folk's smaller shape is traditionally preferred for folk and blues styles of music, but Alvarez's Artist Folk is also at home with strummed open chords too, making it a smaller-bodied instrument with great versatility. This acoustic-electric version is fitted with the amazing SYS650, blend system EQ with tuner.

Artist Series '70s are stunning guitars made from hand-selected A-grade Sitka and Cedar tops with rosewood backs and sides. The high gloss finish really brings out the beauty and grain in the rosewood and, like all Artist Series, they have advanced scalloped bracing and premium all-natural components. Just like Artist ’60 models the ‘70s have incredible tone and the rosewood helps to accentuate the highs and lows just a tad more.

Features
  • Top: Hand-selected, ‘A’ grade, solid Sitka spruce
  • Back & Sides: Rosewood
  • Fingerboard: Rosewood
  • Machine heads: Premium die-cast chrome
  • Hardware: SYS650 Dual pick up, Blend system EQ with tuner
  • Bridge: Alvarez bi-level rosewood
  • Strings: D’Addario EXPs
  • Finish: Premium, high gloss

A great guitar at a great price! Order today!

              This guitar sounds and plays great. Glad I purchased it. The first I got needed work buzzing out in upper register. I sent it back and Musicians Friend took care of me. The only problem the replacement was on back order but it finally came actually a little earlier than I wxpected. All around I am satisfied with my purchase and friendly prompt service I recieved. Had to buy case seperate got to have protection..

              Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AF70CE Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I just bought this guitar to see if I like it your not. I own an Alvarez electric acoustic now and it's my pride and joy. I've had it for about 3 years and it's been on tour with me to Japan and even the Grammys west coast tour. I'm the same guy that just bought a Mackie FX Pro 22 sound board, Tascam DP 03 8 track protable Recorder for arranging vocal part for my band and a few odds and ends from Musician's Friend. The easiest and most convenient part when you live in Hawaii on the outer Islands and the closest music store is about a hundred miles round trip is to order your music gear from Musician's Friend. The hard part is waiting for your gear to get here! LOL! This is my first time ordering an instrument through any online story especially something so personal as a guitar. I was always told it's the one item you should never order online and it's because you can't hear it, or feel it. Well Musician's Friend it's your chance to prove the skeptics wrong and let them know it's okay to do so. I'll let you know if the skeptics were right or wrong. PS. I need the guitar before Friday morning. I'm doing a big concert on the Island of Maui and my flight leaves at 9:00am Hawaii time Friday. I ordered the guitar at 3:00am Hawaii time on 5/6/2014 let see if the 2 day shiping is true. I'll make you a deal Musician's Friend. If all my gear makes it here to my house in Hawaii before Firday morning I'll order everything music from Musician's Friend from now on. I Promise!

                I bought the SDOTD from MF and ended up with a lot of guitar. I had to send the first one back and MF made it a pleasure to have a problem. Couldn't be happier with the guitar and buying from MF.

                      I was REALLY lookin' forward to this,unfortunately the guitar did not arrive In good shape. Lots of buzz on the strings. I had It a few days and felt I should have a very qualified luthier/repairman take a look at It. He said I had to get work done one It IMMEDIATELY.He said It was extremely DRY, and the the neck was out of whack and the top was really dry. So yeah I Like the shape of the guitar, and like the sound. But, It's at the repair shop and goin' to cost me to get It repaired because of the shape It showed up In. I'm disappointed BTW , all of my other guitar are fine In my apartment
