Medium size with a focused sound and strong mids, great for recording and live work.

The ˜66 models are beautifully finished and have a deep glass-like shine. The vintage sunburst on mahogany brings out the grain to create a warm look to match its tone. These mahogany top guitars have a focused sound with strong mids, great for recording and live work.

Alvarez's Artist Series is now "The Award Winning Artist Series" - winning competitions and receiving rave reviews in the States, Europe and around the world. It's a truly designed line of guitars that stands tall and sounds sweet in the solid top guitar market.

Hand-selected solid tops; forward shifted scalloped bracing, awesome tone and player experience¦.

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. 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. These components include the FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tonewoods.

FSTM is a forward-shifted X brace design. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are scalloped. Moving the system forward allows for a larger soundboard, which is optimized with a solid maple bridge plate for both strength and energy.

The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. These guitars feel right and are exciting to play and responsive. Dig in and they shout right back at you, treat them gently and they whisper and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick.

The solid ˜A' grade Sitka spruce and cedar tops are hand-selected from quarter-sawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and its no secret better guitars are made from better wood. These tops not only look great but they are stiff and strong and finely grained.

    Comments about Alvarez AF66 OM/Folk Acoustic Guitar:

    Feels great sounds alright but doesnt sound any better than a 200 fender. Plays much easier than my fender dg8 and martin but doest sound quite as good as the fender to my ears. Not even close to the sweet sound ofmy martin 000sm15. But the nut width is perfect for me..and fun to play. So if you can afford a few hundred more maybe try the alvarez masreworks version in all solid wood


    Beautiful guitar

      Comments about Alvarez AF66 OM/Folk Acoustic Guitar:

      Guitar is absolutely beautiful sounding, and in the way it looks, and plays. It is really pretty with the high gloss tobacco burst on the mahogany. My only complaint is that it took many days for it to sound full. I know it is an OM and all mahogany body, but right out of the box it sounded really muffled. After several days of playing it really opened up. A couple weeks later and it sounds better every day. "Not sure if me living in SW Florida is more conducive to an all mahogany guitar" but it really sounds good and has some punch now. I love this guitar and would definitely recommend it. I am a beginner and have not owned a lot of guitars, but I have played a lot of different brands in shops an can honestly say this guitar sounds great.
