OVERVIEW

An affordable nylon string with a hand-selected solid cedar top, mahogany body and L.R. Baggs electronics.

Artist Series classical guitars are beautifully made using a traditional Spanish heel construction. Their bracing helps deliver sustain, balance and volume. This acoustic-electric version of the AC65 is fitted with wonderful L.R. Baggs StagePro Element electronics with its undersaddle pickup and a sidemounted preamp that not only gives you a 3-band EQ, but adds a Garret Null notch filter, phase inversion and a full chromatic tuner.

The Alvarez Artist Series AC65CE Classical Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a member of the Alvarez Artist '60 Series. Alvarez was careful to get the construction just right to allow this series to sing, and deliver a player experience that's exceptional for a mid price instrument.

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 doesn't 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 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.

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.

The solid ˜A' grade 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. This allows them to be cut just that tiny bit thinner, which lets them dance a little more and produce a lot more vibration, and ultimately a richer tone.

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.
