In conceptualizing the Artist Elite series, Alvarez’s goal was simple—to produce a collection of guitars beyond comparison. This stunning line of guitars is the culmination of years of research and development that allowed Alvarez to produce custom-style instruments from amazing tonewoods with a truly radiant vibe.
Alvarez Artist Elite models look amazing, sound rich and offer a level of fit and finish not often attainable at such price points. The Alvarez AGE910CEAR is a stunning, high-quality acoustic-electric guitar made from AA grade, finely grained North American Sitka spruce and hand-selected Macassar ebony back and sides.
The high-quality soundboard gives players instant response and the ebony supports that, creating immediate response and clarity to its notes. The MST1 bracing system is what Alvarez calls “middle-shifted,” which is carefully scalloped to deliver both strength and vibration with an open projection and lots of volume.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes and materials remains at the heart of Alvarez’s culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense—from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Alvarez’s tonewoods are carefully cured, their components such as neck blocks and wood joints are also carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques Alvarez uses are continually researched and developed, and their tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, designed and lively sound box.
Each Alvarez model is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together to produce balanced, 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 this instrument.
