Overview

The AGE95CESHB Artist Elite Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar is a beautifully developed grand auditorium with quite a rare and inspired pairing of tonewoods. Its AA North Western red cedar top and Macassar ebony body gives this guitar a really warm and open voicing with darker trebles and clear bass. Aesthetically, the guitar is stunning with a lighter shade of Alvarez's standard Shadowburst carefully crafted to let the grain of the wood stay visible right to the edge where it is met with ebony binding. This is a really great guitar with a true character to its sound and looks exceptional.

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. Alvarez believes their Artist Elite Series is one of the finest solid top guitar lines in the world today and demonstrates their commitment to design.

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 Elite Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model of the Artist Elite Series 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 their crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction a positively impact the performance of the instrument.

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.
