The Alvarez Jazz & Blues Series delivers genre specific instruments to capture the very essence of American music history. Body shapes, bracings and constructions were carefully considered before opening molds for the body shapes and finalizing specifications.
Alvarez Blues Guitars have a vintage vibe all the way with a small rectangle bridge, V profile neck, 2 ¼” string spacing and back shifted bracing to make these smaller bodied Guitars feel and sound just right.
Tonally they deliver the compressed bluesy bark expected from such a design but the refined back shifted, scalloped bracing adds more openness for a slightly more modern style projection.
The Delta 00 has a 14th fret neck join to the body, grained ivoroid binding and a perfect vintage burst. It’s a responsive Guitar and although suited more towards finger style it can handle open chord strumming in its stride.
After 50 years of making Guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez's culture. Alvarez Guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. the tone woods are carefully cured; the components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques we use are continually researched and developed, and the tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.
This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best Guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience.
