About Alvarez Guitars

Alvarez guitars is an acoustic and classical brand that originated in Missouri, USA. Alvarez produces a wide range of great value instruments and is in fact the sister company of the fantastic Japanese brand K Yairi. These guitars are made in the Far East to excellent standards and have been a popular brand in the US for nearly 50 years. They are a truly international company: their headquarters are in St Louis, Missouri; the guitars are made in the Far East and the R&D for their classical and flamenco lines were carried out in Cadiz, Spain in order to attain the correct authenticity for their guitars.

Alvarez make guitars for beginners, intermediates and professional players in a range of styles. Dreadnoughts, folk models, parlours and of course classical and flamenco guitars are all available. We have a fantastic selection of Alvarez acoustic instruments ready to view and try out in the acoustic department of each of our guitarguitar stores.
