Alvarez has been consistently churning out great affordable guitars so it’s always good news from them as they launch their new range at Winter NAMM.
Armrest Models for Artist Series
AG70AR – Sitka top with rosewood b/s and maple bindings
The Artist Series guitars get a new beveled armrest this year as players look for more comfort when playing the bigger body guitars.
AG60AR – Sitka top with mahogany b/s and rosewood bindings
It seems like the GA sized guitars are first to be launched with the armrest and the website shows the AG60AR and AG70AR sporting rosewood and maple bindings respectively.
A vintage looking short scale travel guitar that looks set to compete with the likes of Baby Taylor and Little Martin. This one should please players who want the ol’ school look. It’s also worth noting that this model comes with a 1-3/4 inch nut that is widely preferred.
The new LJ2 replaces the LJ60 in the lineup. Well-received as a more affordable alternative to the Taylor GS Mini, the LJ2 should do very well here in SG. Again, the 1-3/4 inch nut may prove to be decisive.
