Alvarez AGW77-CEARSHB Artist Elite Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar
In conceptualizing Artist Elite, our goal was simple: Produce a collection of guitars beyond comparison.
There are of course many wonderful guitars available, and some are every inch as beautiful as Artist Elite, but we don’t know of any that offer the same value.
This stunning line of guitars is the culmination of years of R&D that allows us to produce custom style instruments from amazing tone woods with a truly radiant vibe. Artist Elite look amazing, sound rich and offer a level of fit and finish rarely attainable at such price points.
The AGW77CEARSHB is a beautifully developed Grand Auditorium that overachieves in terms of both tone and looks. The gloss Shadowburst finish on the Walnut creates a rich aesthetic which is perfectly framed by the Flame Maple binding. Tonally this guitar has a real-time response and great clarity, separation and balance and would suit most styles of music. It also offers added functionality and comfort with its cutaway and slim style bevel armrest, making the AGW77CEARSHB a great looking, versatile guitar.
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.
