Alvarez AF66SB Acoustic Guitar Sunburst Finish

The '66 models are beautiful guitars, finished to have a deep glass-like shine. The vintage sunburst on Mahogany brings out the grain to create a warm look to match its tone. Alvarez mahogany top guitars have a focused sound with strong mids, warm highs, and big beefy lows, all great for recording and live work.

Artist Series is now "The Award Winning Artist Series" – winning competitions and receiving rave reviews in the States, Europe and around the world. It's a masterfully designed line of guitars that stands tall and sounds sweet in the solid top guitar market.

The term "solid top" of course 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. Artist Series are built to do just that.

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. These components include our FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tone woods.

FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are scalloped. Moving the system forward allows for a larger soundboard, which is optimized with a solid maple bridge plate for both strength and energy.

The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. These guitars feel right and are exciting to play and responsive. Dig in and they shout right back at you, treat them gently and they whisper and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick.

The solid 'A' grade Sitka spruce and cedar tops are hand selected from quarter-sawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and it's no secret better guitars are made from better wood. Our tops not only look great but they are stiff and strong and finely grained.
