Alvarez AG610CE-12SHB Artist Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar



Availability: 1 in stock

The AG610CE-12SHB is a stunning 12-string Grand Auditorium displaying Alvarez’s renowned high gloss, fine finish over a solid North American Sitka spruce top. The flawless semi-gloss back and sides allow the guitar to resonate and the same finish applied to the neck makes for a great feeling instrument that is smooth and easy to play.

Tonally the AG610CE-12SHB has that Grand Auditorium articulation and balance, which is transformed into a shimmering wall of sound when strummed. 12-strings deliver that amazing upper frequency, almost chorus effect of chimes and this guitar delivers the classic 12-string sound perfectly.

It’s fitted with the discrete, but lively, SYS100 pickup and preamp, located in the end pin and controlled by a smartly designed soundhole console offering volume and tone controls.

Overall the AG610CE-12SHB is a beautiful, articulate GA suitable for anyone looking for the chiming sound of a well-made 12-string.
