Alvarez uses traditional style construction for its classical guitars, incorporating a Spanish heel neck joint and tapered fan bracing to deliver stability, balance and volume across all six strings. The Artist 65’s are very responsive guitars with a warm and open voice.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. The tone woods are carefully cured; components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques are continually researched and developed, and tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.
