A sweet little guitar with a solid African mahogany top and a deep sunburst finish.

The AP860SB is a wonderful little guitar that has a solid African mahogany top with a mirror-like, deep shine sunburst finish and African mahogany back and sides. The top has an all round 2.0mm paua abalone purfling against ivory ABS binding and just the right amount of inlay so its classy, showy and understated all at the same time. The purfling is matched to the rosewood and paua rosette and 12ft. fret pearl inlay on its dot-free rosewood fingerboard.

Sonically the 860 is very open for a parlor, but Alvarez allowed the small body to still create enough compression to have focus for a modern, yet traditional sound. The mahogany brings out the mids and the scalloped bracing pushes the trebles and bass to go with them, so you have balance across the strings and an intimate response.

The 860 also has the unmistakable Alvarez bi-level rosewood bridge. This system significantly increases the break angle from the saddle to the top. This increased down pressure raises string tension, giving the guitar a very responsive feel and adding quality to its volume and sustain.

This is a sweet little guitar with a big personality and it's perfectly well dressed.

    As reviewed by Patti on 11/7/2014

    I've had this guitar for a week or so and I must say, this Alvarez AP860SB is very hard to put down. It is that amazing! I have several other nice guitars that I enjoy playing but this is my first parlor sized guitar. I was hesitant because of the size but I am so glad I bought this little beauty. It is a beauty but the sound, quality and the handling is simply amazing. I really like everything about this guitar. I tried the AP660? model comparing both of them for over an hour at GC in Houston. Both guitars are very nice. The 660 handles like a dream and sounds awesome so I had a hard time passing on that one... but the AP860SB sounds richer to me. It's a bit deeper on the lows and mids which is exactly what I was looking for. The action is nice and low, the neck almost like playing air... If you are in the market for a nice parlor guitar be sure to try the AP860SB. You'll be amazed at the quality and volume of sound coming from this guitar. It's a keeper.
