Most people are more familiar with Koa rather than Acacia, but the fact is they are the same tree. This wood is also referred to as Formosan Koa, Formosa being the old name for Taiwan. Many Acacias make for great tone wood because it performs well and looks fantastic. It is both light and stiff and resonates.Tonally it can deliver the sparkling trebles associated with rosewood but it has the warmth and middle frequencies similar to a great mahogany. This AGA99CEARSHB is beautifully finished with our lightly shaded Shadowburst crafted to leave the grain visible right to the edge of the guitar where it meets Flame Maple binding. The overall design is completed with our slim bevel edge armrest, cutaway and LR Baggs electronics. Master Luthiers around the world have been crafting bevel edged armrest guitars for many years. The feature not only makes the guitar more comfortable to play, but also allows the maker to demonstrate their skill and craftsmanship in producing beautiful instruments. After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of our culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes.
Our tone woods are carefully cured; our components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques we use are continually researched and developed, and our tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, designed and lively sound box. 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 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 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.
Our Bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response. Real bone nut and saddle, premium tone woods and our crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction a positively impact the performance of the instrument.
