Overview

In conceptualizing Artist Elite, Alvarez’s goal was simple: to produce a collection of guitars beyond comparison.

The Alvarez Artist Elite series is the culmination of years of research and development that allows Alvarez to produce custom-style instruments from selected tone woods with a radiant vibe. Artist Elite models look stunning, sound rich and offer a level of fit and finish rarely attainable at such price points. The Alvarez AMPE915EAR Artist Elite is a beautifully developed “modern” Parlor with a rare pairing of tone woods.
 
This Alvarez AMPE915EAR Artist Elite model boasts a AA North Western red cedar top and macassar ebony body, giving it a warm and open voicing with darker trebles and clear bass. Aesthetically, this Alvarez acoustic/electric is striking 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’s met with an ebony binding that blends perfectly into a bevel armrest for a unique feature on a small-bodied guitar.

After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez’s culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed accurately in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Alvarez’s tone woods are carefully selected and their components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques Alvarez uses are continually researched and developed, and the Alvarez tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, designed and lively sound box.

Alvarez Artist Elite series models are built to optimize the energy that a solid soundboard can generate, which significantly improves the overall tone of the instrument. 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 Alvarez’s crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction and positively impact the performance of the instrument.
