The newly launched AV4 series feature a sunburst finished trio of guitars. This follows a trend where guitar makers put an antique burst finish to the mahogany tops.
In recent years, Martin rolled out the “shaded” versions of the 15 series while Alvarez also has the “shadowburst” on its Masterworks mahogany guitars.
The Artwood Vintage 4s are really good looking guitars with solid mahogany tops with laminated mahogany b/s. Old schooled features such as open geared machine heads and block inlays on fingerboard add to the bling aspects. Bone saddle and nut will save players some money on upgrades.
The AVD4 is a dreadnaught, the AVN4 a parlour and the AVC4 (first picture) is a grand concert.
Beautiful guitars worth checking out when they hit our shores.
