Overview

The Artist Series AG660ESHB is an elegant, cosmetically rich Grand Auditorium guitar with a powerful and open sound. The solid mahogany top with gloss finish helps produce a focused tone making this instrument great for recording and live work. The Shadowburst finish on the 660 is stunning, carefully crafted to produce a mirror deep shine and sophisticated appearance. It is fitted with the SYS250 3-band EQ with notch filter and backlit digital tuner.

Along with a more angled headstock, the AG660ESHB features their bi-level bridge which increases string tension by making the break angle of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to the sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of a real bone nut and saddle.


Artist Series
Each model of the Artist Series 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 our FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tonewoods and a thin finish. The FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design. This means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development in their Yairi workshops.

The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful. FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. Artist Series feel right and are exciting to play; no matter if you are strumming hard or picking lightly, the guitar will do what you ask of it.

Alvarez Guitars
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Tonewoods 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 the tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.

Case sold separately.
