The AFA95CESHB is a really special OM with quite a rare and inspired pairing of tone woods. Its AA North Western Red Cedar top and figured Acacia body gives this guitar a really warm and open voicing with slightly darker trebles and clear bass. Aesthetically the guitar is stunning with a lighter shade of Shadowburst carefully crafted to let the grain of the wood stay visible right to the edge, which is bound by Flame Maple. This is a really great guitar with a true character to its sound and looks exceptional.
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.
