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 AGA99CEARSHB is one of the most attractive guitars Alvarez makes. The idea to create this model was made several years in advance when we acquired the Acacia. The wood was then naturally seasoned for three years before we prepared it for production. When you have special wood you have to create a special instrument. This guitar sounds lovely, it’s bright but not overly so, it has lots of middle and a clear low-end due to its MST1 bracing allowing the top to generate a lot of vibration.
Most people are more familiar with Koa rather than Acacia, but the fact is they are the same tree. Koa is an Acacia too but comes from Hawaii, where Alvarez's Acacia was grown in Taiwan and therefore called Acacia Confusa, rather than Acacia Koa. This wood is also referred to as Formosan Koa, Formosa being the old name for Taiwan.
Many Acacias make for great tone wood because it performs well and looks fantastic. It is both light and stiff and resonates. Tonally it can deliver the sparkling trebles associated with rosewood but it has the warmth and middle frequencies similar to a great mahogany. This AGA99CEARSHB is beautifully finished with the lightly shaded Shadowburst crafted to leave the grain visible right to the edge of the guitar where it meets Flame Maple binding. The overall design is completed with our slim bevel edge armrest, cutaway and LR Baggs electronics.
