Full, bright tone with the right electronics to capture it in live situations.
Big, blonde and beautiful, the Artist Series AJ80CE-12 Jumbo is a powerhouse guitar and incredible value with a solid A+ Sitka spruce top, hand selected from quarter sawn wood paired with a maple body for a brighter tonal blend.
As with all Artist Series models it's 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 Alvarez's 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 AJ80CE-12 also comes equipped with an L.R. Baggs StagePro Element, a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look. The three-band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions.
