Overview

Part of the Artist series from Alvarez, the AP660 Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar is beautifully finished and has a deep glass-like shine. The Shadowburst on mahogany brings out the grain to create a warm look to match its tone. This mahogany top guitar has a focused sound with strong mids, great for recording and live work.

This acoustic-electric parlor is fitted with the SYS250 three-band EQ with digital back lit tuner and it’s forward shifted scalloped FST bracing system delivers a great open tone for a small-bodied guitar.

The term “solid top” 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 optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. 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 balance, lively projection and great response. These components include our FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tone woods and thin finish.

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 Alvarez's 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. 

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

Case sold separately.
