The Alvarez Artist Series takes quality to the next level through incredible attention to detail and design, delivering outstanding value for money.
Tonally, the Artist Series has excellent performance and achieves clear balance and response across all strings. Energetic projection is helped by the FST2 forward shifted X brace design,where 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. This scalloped design was the result of years of continual development in the Yairi workshops.
The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful. FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. Artist Series acoustic guitars feel right and are exciting to play; no matter if you are strumming hard or picking lightly, the guitar will do what you ask of it.
Along with a more angled headstock, the Alvarez bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angel of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to the sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles.
