The Alvarez Artist Blues Series delivers genre specific instruments to capture the very essence of American music history. Body shapes, bracings and constructions were carefully considered before opening molds for our body shapes and finalizing specifications.
Alvarez Blues guitars have a vintage vibe all the way with a small rectangle bridge, V profile neck, 2 ¼” string spacing and back shifted bracing to make these smaller bodied guitars feel and sound just right.
Tonally they deliver the compressed bluesy bark expected from such a design but the refined back shifted, scalloped bracing adds more openness for a slightly more modern style projection.
The Delta 00 has a 14th fret neck join to the body, grained ivoroid binding and a perfect vintage burst. It’s a responsive guitar and although suited more towards finger style it can handle open chord strumming in its stride.
