Master Luthiers around the world have been crafting bevel edged armrest guitars for some time. The feature not only makes the guitar more comfortable to play, but also allows the maker to demonstrate their skill and craftsmanship in producing beautiful instruments.
Inline with the Alvarez philosophy of making great guitars accessible to as many players as possible, they offer the Artist Series armrest models. The AG/AR models deliver the great tone Artist Series is known for while exhibiting Alvarez's ability to produce beautiful, affordable guitars.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of the Alvarez culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Tone woods are carefully cured; components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques used are continually researched and developed, and tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.
This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience.
We believe the Alvarez multi award winning Artist Series is one of the finest solid top guitar lines in the world today and demonstrates our commitment to design.
