The body of the Alvarez BLUES51W/TSB is constructed from gorgeous Dark Walnut, yielding a bright top-end and a present mid-range. Despite its small body size, this particular model’s back shifted scalloped bracing adds more openness, giving the instrument plenty of projection.
Adorned with a Solid A+ Sitka Spruce top, this tonewood delivers some crucial top-end crispness. Providing you with plenty of presence, you can play fingerpicked patterns with all of the clarity and articulation you’d expect from a high-quality acoustic guitar. The Alvarez BLUES51W/TSB’s body is paired with a Mahogany neck, offering a warm and rich character that enhances the low-end, to give a balanced sound overall. Featuring a V-shaped neck profile, that traditional feel is retained to keep the purists happy.
The Jazz & Blues Range
The extremely popular Alvarez Jazz & Blues series covers a broad range of designs inspired by one of the definitive chapters in American music. This includes hollow-bodied ES-style guitars, semi-hollow electrics with vibrant aesthetics, and even a few small-bodied delta-blues acoustics - such as this.
As with the rest of their varied catalogue, Alvarez combine modern manufacturing techniques with unique tonewood treatments and beautiful design. The resulting instruments are top-class, offering authentic, articulate sounds and spellbinding looks. Several tweaks to this classic formula also give the Jazz & Blues offerings a uniquely modern edge – expect crystal-clarity and attention to detail.
