Overview

The AP610EFM is an exclusive model designed to demonstrate the high quality Alvarez is able to deliver at such value. Cosmetically, this guitar is incredibly rich with a flawless gloss finish that shows the flamed mahogany back and sides beautifully. The top is AA North American solid Sitka spruce and is married to Alvarez’s awesome forward shifted, scalloped bracing system.

The body is bound in maple and other premium components are used throughout including real bone nut and saddle, Mother of Pearl and Abalone inlays and premium tuners. This model is also fitted with the SYS100 under saddle active pickup, a discreet system that houses the preamp in the pickup jack and tone and volume controls in a small sound hole console.

The AP610EFM comes with Alvarez's FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, a real bone nut and saddle, quality tonewoods and a thin finish.

FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design. This means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole, and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development in our Yairi workshops. FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.

Along with a more angled headstock, the bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angel of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to our sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles.

Case sold separately.

This was just what I was looking for.

Comments about Alvarez AP610EFM Limited Edition Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I was intrigued by Parlor guitars for several years after I watched a video of Ian Anderson with Jethro Tull play an old Martin in live performance. I had been looking at the higher end products and playing the lower end parlor guitars wasn't too pleasant. I found the Alvarez to be perfect for my needs at an attractive price. I teach guitar as my retirement job, using my Martin X for a lesson guitar and have found that I end up taking the Alvarez as a matter of choice.

Nice sound for small guitar

By Roger D. In Nashville

Comments about Alvarez AP610EFM Limited Edition Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I like this guitar. Wanted something smaller for writer gigs that sounded great. I think I found it.
Precise feel. Great for finger picking. Original electronics were dead on arrival... but Guitar Center upgraded the pickup system to the Affinity system by Fishman . Cool little guitar... Great service from the store.

Great experience

By Nat

Comments about Alvarez AP610EFM Limited Edition Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Wanted a small guitar to take with and not be afraid of damage etc.. this fits the bill. Also I couldn't find any reviews on this guitar when I looked so I decided to write one. This is great little guitar and it sounds great. I did change out the strings and put ebony bridge pins in. The look and feel is wonderful and I have enjoyed playing it so far. If you are looking for a nice parlor with good sound and is easy to play I would recommend. Love the color and curvy mahogany back and sides.
