Product Description

Character & personality are really hard to find in an inexpensive acoustic guitar. But the Alvarez AD66CE proves that warm, deep bass, taut mids, and a balanced high-end don't necessarily have to be expensive. At the heart of the AD66CE's amazing tone is its hand-sanded scalloped bracing, which allows the top to resonate more freely without compromising strength & stability.

If you didn't think an inexpensive acoustic could put out this much bottom end, think again! Alvarez's bi-level bridge puts more down-pressure on the genuine bone saddle, creating a more efficient energy transfer from the strings to the top, giving you more volume than you ever thought possible from a guitar in this price range. A bone nut & rosewood bridge pins keep the good vibrations happening. Alvarez also refined their neck profile, with a thinner, faster neck that plays easier, yet still feels solid in your hands.

The AD66CE features Alvarez' SYS650 electronics, which uses patented electret film technology instead of Piezo materials. A piezo pickup tends to color the amplified tone, which can often sound thin and two-dimensional. You don't get that with the electret film technology, which works similar to a condenser microphone, allowing for a more accurate reproduction of the instrument's true acoustic voice.

The SYS650 is a dual pickup system incorporating one under saddle pick up and a transducer pick up placed under the soundboard. Either pickup can be selected or you can blend between the two to find subtle changes in response for lead, picking or rhythm work. The system also has a fully chromatic, precision tuner with backlit LCD screen; 3-bands of rotary EQ, and a great notch control that helps identify and eliminate feedback. With all of these pro-caliber features, the AD66CE sets a new value standard for acoustic guitars.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Alvarez AD66CE...I consider almost a "Masterpiece""
Overall: This guitar is very well made with great quality material. The tone is beautiful and playability is easy. I looked months online trying to decide what guitar I wanted and I chose the Alvarez, due to the fact, you get better quality and constructed guitar for the money. I am extremely happy with my purchase and like the fact Zzounds has a "Play as you Pay" which helps when on a tight budget.
