One Beautiful Sounding Guitar!

By Casey B

from Northern Michigan

I purchased this guitar after trying out many of the top guitars on the market. This guitar blew me away when I played it. The tone and pure warmth melted me. If you are looking for a top rack guitar at a middle of the road price, then this is the guitar for you. The finish, binding, and quality is absolutly beautiful. Though it does have a gorgeous tone, there is a little bit of fret "noise" if not played precisely. You cannot overplay the guitar or it will let you know. This is not to say that you cannot play aggressively. You just have to place the correct amount of pressure to the fret board. I highly recommend it!


Well Worth the Money

Fantastic guitar for the money. Solid top and back give the tone a crisp but warm feel. Plugged in (with a direct box) the guitar doesnt lose a beat. On top of all that the thing is B-E-A-utiful! If your looking for a Jumbo in the price range, this is the one.


Great for strait up playing

I've just bought one of these, and I was a simply delighted. It's combine bass and highs makes this the perfect Alvarez acoustic guitar.

This is truly a wonderful guitar. Not as good as my yari classical but I can do things with it that I cannot do with my classical vise versa. I love this one as I do my yari and I reccommend this guitar but with light gage strings. Wonderful, tone easy to play. I also love the built in tuner. A great learning or concert guitar.
