In conceptualizing Artist Elite, Alvarez's goal was simple: “Produce a collection of guitars beyond comparison”.

There are many wonderful guitars available, and some are every inch as beautiful as an Artist Elite, but they certainly don’t offer the same value.

This stunning line of guitars is the culmination of years of R&D that allowed Alvarez to produce custom style instruments from amazing tone woods with a truly radiant vibe. Artist Elites look amazing, sound rich and offer a level of fit and finish rarely attainable at such price points.

The ADE90CEAR is a serious dreadnought with great character and a killer tone. Its AA North American, solid Sitka spruce top and Macassar ebony body gives you lots of volume and low end with super clear trebles. Aesthetically the guitar oozes quality from its premium tonewoods, LR Baggs electronics and its ebony bevel armrest. This is a stunning guitar with a really high-end vibe and big voice.

Master Luthiers around the world have been crafting bevel edged armrest guitars for many years. The feature not only makes the guitar more comfortable to play, but also allows the maker to demonstrate their skill and craftsmanship in producing beautiful instruments.

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; our components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques used are continually researched and developed, and the tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, designed and lively sound box.

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. The Artist Elite Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include bracing architecture that is specifically designed for each body shape or tonal requirement. The Bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response. Real bone nut and saddle, premium tone woods and our crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction and positively impact the performance of the instrument.

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.
