Alvarez Artist Series AD30CE Dreadnought Acoustic Electric Guitar

The Alvarez AD30CE is designed to be a quality acoustic guitar at a great price. Aimed at players who are looking for something better than just a beginner acoustic, Artist series uses higher grades of timbers. The result is a superior tone that will get even better as the guitar ages.

  • Mahogany Back and Sides
  • Pickup system

About the Artist Series

Alvarez’ multi-award winning Artist Series represents their commitment to quality and design. This is why they claim it to be one of the finest solid top guitar lines in the world today.

Artist Series feel right and are exciting to play; whether you are strumming hard or picking lightly, the guitar will do what you ask of it. For a more focused sound with fewer overtones, then choose a mahogany top. If you prefer a more open projection tone, then go for Sitka. Otherwise, for warmth and response to a lighter touch, select a Cedar top.

All of our tops are selected by their team and graded independently of our suppliers. If it isn’t worthy, they simply won’t use it! While top quality improves as you move up the Artist Series models, all are stiff and finely grained.

After 55 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of our culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes.

Tonewoods

Our tonewoods are carefully cured; our components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques Alvarez use are continually researched and developed. Alvarez tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively soundbox.

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.

The term “solid top” refers to the guitar’s soundboard being made of solid wood rather than laminates. However, even when the guitar top is made of solid wood, 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.

Components and Design

Each model in this series is designed to get the best out of its components. The goal is for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include the Alvarez FS6 bracing design. This bracing allows the soundbox to sing and brings uniformity across Dreadnought, Grand Auditorium, OM and Parlor body sizes. This means their voicings have similar character, but individual tone is more influenced by the size/shape of the guitar.

Our bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response. This is further enhanced with a real bone nut and saddle, premium tonewoods, and our crafted attenuated finish. Artist gloss models have such a beautiful, clear, deep shine to them. Alvarez optimize the tone of the guitar by applying this finish as thinly as possible. The personality and voicing of Artist Series is open, dynamic and instantly responsive.

So, why not grab yourself an Alvarez AD30CE acoustic guitar?! You’ll be glad that chose an Alvarez.
