The ADWS77CESHB Artist Elite acoustic-electric guitar is a lively dreadnought and delivers a warm, focused tone from its all-walnut construction. Its body is slimmer than Alvarez's standard dreadnought shape making it a very comfortable instrument while retaining great projection and quick response. The gloss Shadowburst finish on the ADWS77CESHB Artist Elite's walnut creates a rich aesthetic which is perfectly framed by the flame maple binding. This is a beautiful guitar and would be a great choice for gigging with its slimmer depth and L.R. Baggs electronics.
A case is sold separately.
Artist Elite 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 culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Their tonewoods are carefully cured; components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques used are continually researched and developed, and the tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box. This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic 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 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 of its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include bracing architecture that is specifically designed for each body shape or tonal requirement. Alvarez's bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response. Real bone nut and saddle, premium tonewoods and Alvarez's crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction and positively impact the performance of the instrument.
