      Alvarez Artist Series AJ80 Jumbo Guitar (H78622)
Availability:  


An affordable guitar with a hand-selected solid spruce top, maple back and sides, and huge tone.

The Alvarez Artist Series AJ80 Jumbo Guitar is big, bright and beautiful. The solid A-grade Sitka tops with forward scalloped bracing lets this guitar really sing and the player experience is fantastic - you can really feel the energy of this guitar vibrate against your chest. Like most classic Jumbos the ’80 has maple back and sides and all-natural, premium components throughout.

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 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 Sitka spruce 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 Artist Series guitars look stunning and their components are made of natural materials such as mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays, real bone saddles and nuts and rosewood appointments.

Case sold separately.

  • AJ80

    As reviewed by ROBERT LEEMBRUGGEN on 11/10/2013

    My AJ80 has low-action with some high frets. Enough to turn a minor chord into a major. Installing an under-bridge pickup strip may be the answer. T will try to find an Alvarez Warranty Station close by. If no one is available I'll level the frets myself. Looks good, sounds good.
