Alvarez Artist Series AP710SB Parlor Acoustic Guitar
The Alvarez Artist Series AP710SB Parlor Acoustic Guitar is a stunning instrument made with a hand-selected A grade Sitka top with rosewood back and sides. The high gloss finish really brings out the beauty and grain in the rosewood and like all Artist Series this one has advanced scalloped bracing and premium all natural components. Just like Artist ’60 models the ‘70’s have incredible tone and the rosewood helps to accentuate the highs and lows just a tad more.
This little parlor guitar is one of the most popular models in the whole Alvarez line. It has fantastic energy and response for its size and it’s incredibly comfortable to play. Center-scalloped bracing was used for this parlor, which lets the top really react to the finest of touches. This probably makes you play this small-bodied guitar differently to how you would larger instruments, which leads to all sorts of great stuff.
The term “solid top” 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 really release the energy a solid soundboard can generate. The all-new Artist Series is built to do exactly this.
Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience, rarely found in affordable instruments. The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.
