Overview

Big, blonde and beautiful, the Artist Series AJ80CE-12 Jumbo is a powerhouse guitar and incredible value with a solid A+ Sitka spruce top, hand selected from quarter sawn wood paired with a maple body for a brighter tonal blend.

As with all Artist Series models it's designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience rarely found in affordable instruments. These components include Alvarez's FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tonewoods.

FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are scalloped. Moving the system forward allows for a larger soundboard, which is optimized with a solid maple bridge plate for both strength and energy.

The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. These guitars feel right and are exciting to play and responsive. Dig in and they shout right back at you, treat them gently and they whisper and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick.

The AJ80CE-12 also comes equipped with an L.R. Baggs StagePro Element, a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look. The three-band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions.

Case sold separately.

Wonderful acoustic electric 12 string

By 12 String Paul

from La Grange

Comments about Alvarez AJ80CE-12 12-String Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Well, I have owned plenty of 12 string guitars in my time. Rickenbackers, Fenders, Gibsons, Peaveys, and Ovations but this is the finest of the bunch. I seriously wouldn,t replace it with any of the others that I have owned. I am a big guy, so this big jumbo feels perfect for me. The neck is just right, not too wide, the action is low enough, and tuned to D using a capo and extra light strings, it has a smooth touch and a loud enough sound, both highs and lows. It stays in tune. always a plus! The electrionics are superb and offer a fine balance of tones and volume combinations. I play mine through a Fender Acoustosonic 90 and wow. I am just blown away somtimes by the effects and possibilities with this setup. The whole instrument is a thing of beauty and I bet if you get your hands on one, you will just have to own it.

    Comments about Alvarez AJ80CE-12 12-String Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've owned many guitars over the years. My last acoustics were Takamine 6 and 12 string, high end. The 12 string was the same as what Glenn Frey played. I bought this guitar and the 6 string matching model to replace both of them (the Takamines had been destroyed). These two guitars are amazing not just for the price but for the quality. I have another Alvarz that is strictly acoustic, no electronics and have always loved it. If you are looking for a great guitar with a ton of tone this is it hands down.
