All the 66's in the Artist Series are solid-top, all-mahogany guitars in a deep gloss vintage sunburst finish. In line with traditional and high-end aesthetics, real mother of pearl and abalone inlays with rosewood appointments set the Artist Series instruments off.
Construction techniques such as dovetail neck joints optimise the transfer of energy between the neck and body, with bi-level rosewood bridges carrying greater vibration to the top, improving tone and resonance. Hand-sanded, quarter-sawn braces encourage even more vibration as well as the solid, hand-selected tops delivering high quality soundboards with optimal tonal qualities.
Open and responsive, the AF66SB generates big midrange tones with loads of warmth and character.
Alvarez have been one of the leading acoustic guitar brands in the USA and around the world for over 45 years, synonymous with quality and with instruments that are known for their tone and feel.
