Overview

This Alvarez Artist Series AD70 Dreadnought Guitar is a powerful dreadnought, suitable for all styles of playing. It's a member of the Artist Series '70s, which are stunning guitars made from hand-selected A grade Sitka with rosewood backs and sides. The high-gloss finish really brings out the beauty and grain in the rosewood and like all Artist Series they have advanced scalloped bracing and all-natural components. Just like Artist '60 models, the ˜70s have incredible tone and the rosewood helps to accentuate the highs and lows just a tad more.

The term "solid top" of course 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 really release the energy a solid soundboard can generate. The Artist Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model is 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.

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.

The solid ˜A' grade Sitka spruce tops are hand-selected from quartersawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and its no secret better guitars are made from better wood. These tops not only look great but they are stiff and strong and finely grained. This allows them to be cut just that tiny bit thinner, which lets them dance a little more and produce a lot more vibration, and ultimately a richer tone.

New Artist Series guitars look stunning and all of their components are made of natural materials such as mother of pearl and abalone inlays, real bone saddles and nuts and rosewood appointments.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AD70 Dreadnought Guitar:

    I use this guitar for practice and enjoyment. I've changed my mind about my other review. After playing it several weeks now I really love it. Sounds great and plays so easy. I can play it easier then my Martin's but I still love those too. I take it to a group play session 2 times a month everyone is impressed with the tone and its beautiful looks. Well built!
