The Alvarez Artist Series
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez’s culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed accurately in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Tonewoods are carefully cured, and components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques used are continually researched and developed, and this tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.

Alvarez’s multi-award-winning Artist Series demonstrates their commitment to design. Each model is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together to produce a balanced, lively projection and great response. These components include Alvarez’s MST1 bracing system, catalpa, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tonewoods and a thin finish.

MST1 is a forward-shifted X brace design, which means the axis of the X is closer to the soundhole, therefore creating 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 their Yairi workshops. The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful.

Artist Series models feel right and are exciting to play, no matter if you’re strumming hard or picking lightly. Along with a more angled headstock, Alvarez's 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 the guitar's sound, feel and response, which is also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles.
