Overview

Alvarez's '66 models are beautifully finished and have a deep glass-like shine. The vintage sunburst on the solid African mahogany brings out the grain to create a warm look to match its tone. Like all Artist Series guitars, the 66 OM/Folk Solid Top has a focused sound with strong mids, great for recording and live work. Rounding its tonewoods are mahogany back, sides, and neck, and rosewood bi-level bridge, fingerboard and headstock plate. Other appointments include a real bone nut and saddle, premium die-cast tuners, and ivory ABS binding, and SYS550 electronics.

B-BAND uses a patented undersaddle film which eliminates synthetic or processed sounds often heard with piezo or other styles of pickup. The result is a very true, acoustic sound. SYS550 also has an accurate, backlit chromatic digital tuner.

The award-winning Artist Series features hand-selected solid tops; forward shifted scalloped bracing, awesome tone and player experience. 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. These components include our FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tonewoods.

FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are scalloped. Moving the system forward allows for a larger soundboard, which is optimized with a solid maple bridge plate for both strength and energy. The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. This guitar feels right and is exciting to play and responsive. Dig in and it shouts right back at you. Treat it gently and it'll whisper and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick.

    Comments about Alvarez Artist Series 66 OM/Folk All Mahogany Solid Top Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Exactly what I expected. The sound is very good. When i start shredding notes its response is great, then when I start playing it slowly the sound will bring a smile to my face. I still need to have the intonation set up but that is to be expected of any guitar unless you are buying premium, high dollar guitar. This guitar is well worth the money I paid for it. With the right care i'll be playing this guitar till they pry my fingers off of it.
