Overview

Part of Alvarez's Artists Series, the AB60LCE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric is an open sounding and punchy acoustic bass with excellence resonance so you too can be heard clearly in acoustic jams and gigs. It has solid A+ grade Sitka spruce top, mahogany neck, back and sides, rosewood fingerboard and bi-level bridge, and a real bone nut and saddle. Other appointments include a smooth cutaway on the treble side, dovetail neckjoint, Paua abalone and mother-of-pearl inlays, Ivory ABS binding, premium die-cast tuners, and PPS synthetic bone bridge pins.

The AB60LCE also includes the SYS550 4-band EQ designed by B-BAND, a pro-level EQ and pickup that reproduces the sound of the guitar very closely with great clarity. B-BAND use a patented under saddle electret film pickup 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.

Hand-selected solid tops; forward shifted scalloped bracing, awesome tone and player experience.
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 really release the energy a solid soundboard can generate. The Artist Series AB60LCE is built to do exactly this.

Like every model of the Artist Seires, this bass 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 tone woods. FST2M 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 from the AB60CLE is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. These guitars feel right and are exciting to play and responsive. Dig in and they shout right back at you, treat them gently and they whisper and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick.

The solid A+ grade Sitka spruce top is hand selected from quartersawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and its no secret better guitars are made from better wood. As you can see, the top looks great. It is also stiff, strong and finely grained.
