Overview

The AGW77CEARSHB is a beautifully developed Grand Auditorium that overachieves in terms of both tone and looks. The gloss Shadowburst finish on the walnut creates a rich aesthetic, which is perfectly framed by the flame maple binding. Tonally, this guitar has a real time response and great clarity, separation and balance, and would suit most styles of music. It also offers added functionality and comfort with its cutaway and slim-style bevel armrest, making the AGW77CEARSHB not only a great looking guitar, but a versatile instrument as well.

Artist Elite Series
In conceptualizing Artist Elite, Alvarez's goal was simple: “Produce a collection of guitars beyond comparison”. This stunning line of guitars is the culmination of years of R&D that allows Alvarez to produce custom-style instruments from amazing tonewoods with a truly radiant vibe. Artist Elite look amazing, sound rich and offer a level of fit and finish rarely attainable at such price points.

Master luthiers around the world have been crafting bevel edged armrest guitars for many years. The feature not only makes guitars like the AGW77CEARSHB Artist Elite Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric more comfortable to play, but also allows Alvarez to demonstrate their skill and craftsmanship in producing beautiful instruments.

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.

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 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 tone woods and our crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction and positively impact the performance of the instrument.
