Manufacturer's ID: AD30

The AD30 is Alvarez's entry-level solid top but it’s anything but entry-level in terms of quality, tone and finish. Incredible sound and value.

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 optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include our FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tone woods and thin finish.

FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design, this means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development in our Yairi workshops.

Obviously a great instrument, though am finding it not so easy to get around. I noticed that the Yamaha that we also tried felt a lot easier on the fingers and hoping, though the Alvarez has a better sound that we made the right decision. I am presuming that it might be hard to get around it to start, but with time it will get better an better...
