OVERVIEW

Bluesy tone with modern projection.

The Alvarez Artist Blues Series delivers genre specific instruments to capture the very essence of American music history. Body shapes, bracings and constructions were carefully considered before opening molds for the body shapes and finalizing specifications.

Alvarez Blues guitars have a vintage vibe all the way with a small rectangle bridge, V profile neck, 2-1/4" string spacing and back shifted bracing to make these smaller bodied guitars feel and sound just right.

Tonally they deliver the compressed bluesy bark expected from such a design but the refined back shifted, scalloped bracing adds more openness for a slightly more modern style projection.

Alvarez created the Artist Blues Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar to offer a high-quality guitar with a vintage vibe, exceptional tone and value. The Artist Blues Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is perfect for any player looking for an outstanding instrument that is well balanced and reliable. 

Players of all styles and musical tastes in need of a great sounding and playable guitar, look no further.  The sound is clear and balanced, with a modern style projection and voice.

The term “solid top” of course 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 optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate.

Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include the designed bracing systems, real bone nuts and saddles, great quality tone woods and thin finish.
