A hand-selected solid top, center scalloped bracing, with impressive tone and B-BAND electronics.
The Alvarez Artist Series AG710CE Grand Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a stunning guitar made with a hand-selected A grade Sitka top with rosewood back and sides. The high gloss finish really brings out the beauty and grain in the rosewood and like all Artist Series this one has advanced scalloped bracing and premium all natural components. Just like Artist ’60 models the ‘70’s have incredible tone and the rosewood helps to accentuate the highs and lows just a tad more.
This AG75CE Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric has similar dimensions to the Dreadnought, but a narrower waist helping to pronounce the treble notes a little more. Great for fingerpicking and strumming, the GA is an all rounder. This model is fitted with the SYS650 blend system with chromatic tuner.
The term “solid top” refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to really release the energy a solid soundboard can generate. The all-new Artist Series is built to do exactly this.
Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience, rarely found in affordable instruments. All of the components are made of natural materials such as mother of pearl and abalone inlays, real bone saddles and nuts and rosewood appointments.The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.
SYS650 dual pickup
The Alvarez SYS650 was designed by B-BAND and is a dual pickup system incorporating one under saddle pickup and a transducer pickup placed under the soundboard. Either pickup can be selected or one can blend between the two to fine tune the response for lead, finger-picking or rhythm work. The system also has a fully chromatic, precision tuner with backlit LCD screen, 3-bands of rotary EQ, and a notch control that can be used to attenuate feedback or to shape the sound.
Enjoy this great sounding guitar at your next performance. Order today.

Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AG710CE Grand Auditorium Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I've been playing the guitar for many years now and I was looking for a quality guitar that wasn't going to cost me an arm and a leg. This guitar turned out to be perfect. I'm not a stage performer or anything but this guitar is a superb choice for playing for friends and family. The guitar feels great, the tone is clear and crisp, and it projects really well. I highly recommend this guitar for musicians on a budget.
