Alvarez uses traditional style construction for its entire classical guitar line 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 tone.
This acoustic electric hybrid model is fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element pick up for optimal live performance. It also has a narrower nut width than a standard classical guitar, with a radius fingerboard and neck that joins at the 14th fret instead of the 12th. Favored by steel string players looking for the nylon string sound and feel.
We inspect each an every instrument we ship out for maximum playability. We adjust the action and adjust intonation when needed. If you would like a specific adjustment, just add it to your order notes and we would be happy to adjust to your liking.
