Alvarez Jazz & Blues unveiled

Alvarez has launched the Jazz & Blues series. This series features guitars in vintage vibes with hollow bodies and nice parlours in shaded finishes.

Jazz Arch-tops

The arch-tops are probably Alvarez’s first foray into electrics and if these follow the tone and quality found in the acoustics, Guitarbear is sure they will be a hit.

The Jazz arch-tops come in a full bodied AAT35 with humbuckers, a slim AAT34 with P90s and a slim AAT33 with humbuckers and stop-tail.

Tonewoods are the tried and trusted maple for the body and neck. Loaded with Duncan Designed pickups, these guitars come in nice finishes such as sunburst, burgundy and walnut

Blues – 00 Parlours

Named as the Blues body size, these 00 parlours further confirm the ongoing trend of smaller bodies with vintage vibes.

The 14 fret parlours have a slightly shorter scale of just under 25 inches. Featuring all-solid construction, these guitars also come in shadow burst and sunburst finishes.

The 12 fret Blues 51 has a shorter overall length due to its construction and also a rosewood arch back.

Although Guitarbear is pleased NOT to see slotted headstocks, there is some disappointment that the Alvarez bi-level bridge is not employed here. The bi-level bridge is a great design that allows good break angle and low action on many Alvarez acoustics.

There is a choice to get these with electronics and Alvarez has chosen the LR Baggs VTC which leaves a much smaller footprint than the B-Band types previously used in their previous models.

No word on pricing yet, but it would be interesting to see if the arch-tops will make their way into SG.

  1. I do consider all the ideas you’ve offered on your post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners. Could you please prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
