The Cádiz Series by Alvarez offers responsive and engaging nylon string guitars of a quality and playability that many musicians will adore. They are a new shape, different to classicals Alvarez have made in the past. They are slightly taller, slightly narrower, more elegant. In order to have a more responsive instrument and to stay true with tradition, Alvarez’s standard Cádiz models do not have a truss-rod. Instead, they are constructed with a three-piece neck and reinforced with a solid ebony center rod that gives the instrument the strength it needs.
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.
