This guitar suits big open chords as well as flatpicking and lead work. The Shadowburst finish on the 600 is stunning, carefully crafted to produce a mirror-deep shine and sophisticated appearance. It is fitted with the SYS150 3-band EQ with notch filter and backlit digital tuner. Alvarez Guitars After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez’s culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Alvarez’s tonewoods are carefully cured; Alvarez’s components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques Alvarez uses are continually researched and developed, and Alvarez’s tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box. This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience. Artist SeriesAlvarez believes their multi-award-winning Artist Series is one of the finest solid top guitar lines in the world today and demonstrates Alvarez’s commitment to design. 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 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 if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include Alvarez’s FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tone woods and thin finish. FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design, this means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development in Alvarez’s Yairi workshops. The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful. FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. Artist Series feel right and are exciting to play; no matter if you are strumming hard or picking lightly, the guitar will do what you ask of it. All of Alvarez’s tops are selected by Alvarez’s team and graded independently of Alvarez’s suppliers. If it isn't worthy, Alvarez won’t use it. Top quality improves as you move up the Artist Series models but all are stiff and finely grained. Along with a more angled headstock, Alvarez’s bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angel of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to Alvarez’s sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles. Artist Series also demonstrates Alvarez’s great finishing capabilities; the gloss models have a clear deep shine from a finish that is applied as thinly as possible, again to help optimize tone.
