The AP910 is one of the coolest guitars on the market today. Stunning in every way, this wonderful little guitar has a solid, naturally seasoned Engelmann spruce top with a mirror like, deep shine vintage sunburst finish and rosewood 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. We match the purfling to a rosewood and paua rosette and 12th fret pearl inlay on its dot-free rosewood fingerboard.
Sonically the 910 is very open for a Palor but Alvarez allowed the small body to still create enough compression to give it focus and a modern feel to a traditional tone. The Engelmann spruce used on this guitar has been naturally seasoned for four years. This ensures greater stability in the top and enhances performance. Being spruce and rosewood you get a stronger signal from the bass and treble registers and thanks to considerately scalloped bracing system, the tone is full, clear and balanced.
The 910 also has the unmistakable Alvarez bi-level 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.

Comments about Alvarez AP910 Parlor Acoustic Guitar:
Played an AP70 at GC and really liked its tone, brightness, and easy fingering. It blew away the other parlors, and played and sounded about as good as the Marin they had in stock. Went back to buy it but it was gone, so I ordered this guy up. The tone is much flatter, not bright at all really, and the action is way higher (which I could fix if the other issues weren't there). The poly is super thick which might have something to do with it. It also has a buzz in the bridge somewhere. I've liked every Alvarez I've picked up, but this one plays like an entry level Yamaha; not what I was after. I could deal with everything else and make it work, but the tone is where it's at with guitars, for me anyhow. Despise returning things, but sometimes...Wondering if that AP70 was a fluke being that good.
