For those who like a big sound with strong bass content, the Alvarez AJ417 acoustic guitar from the Artist series combines a solid spruce top with bubinga back and sides to create a stunning presentation piece. Built on the jumbo platform, the AJ417 possesses great internal air volume and delivers sound that matches its name. Deep, round tones swell from this 6-string jumbo guitar with fat mid frequencies for defined and vibrant projection.
The spruce top offers full and balanced tone that only gets better with age. The Alvarez guitar's bubinga back and sides present a very snappy midrange presence with a little bit of natural reverberation in the mids. The mottled "Bees Wing" in the bubinga produces somewhat of a holographic effect when the jumbo guitar is rotated slightly in the light. Responsive and full, it still offers well-balanced tone that won't drop from the mix. The rosewood bridge and fretboard offer clear and lasting sustain, while the nickel die-cast tuners offer precision tuning.
The Alvarez AJ417 also features many amenities that set it apart from other 6-string guitars in this price range, such as the beautiful multiple body binding, the white pearl rosette, and the signature Alvarez 3-piece inlay in the 12th fret. The AJ417 will turn heads and pique the interest of anybody in earshot.
