The AF60E Artist Folk Solid Top is a full-bodied acoustic-electric OM with a premium solid, North American Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. Its design allows for great response and overall projection. The L.R. Baggs StagePro will reproduce the guitars great tones when used live.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of the 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 like neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques used are continually researched and developed, and their tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.
The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful. For a more focused sound with fewer overtones, choose a mahogany top. For power, go for Sitka, like on this AF60E acoustic-electric guitar. For warmth and response to a lighter touch, Alvarez also offers many cedar tops.
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 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 balance, lively projection and great response. These components include the MST1 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tonewoods and thin finish. The high-gloss natural finish is flawless, carefully crafted to produce a mirror deep shine.
Artist Series acoustic guitars feel right and are exciting to play; no matter if you are strumming hard or picking lightly, the guitar will do what you ask of it.
