Stand out with something really special. This Artist Elite features all-walnut construction for bold tones, and LR Baggs electronics to bring it all home.
What's special about this item?
Feature: What it does:
Black Walnut top Beautifully figured and color
Walnut back and sides Balanced tone with a bit of growl in lower mids
Pau Ferro fretboard Delivers strong midrange presence and punch
Mahogany neck Great sustain, strength, and warm tone
There are of course many wonderful guitars available, and some are every inch as beautiful as Artist Elite, but we don't know of any that offer the same value.
This stunning line of guitars is the culmination of years of R&D that allows us to produce custom style instruments from amazing tone woods with a truly radiant vibe. Artist Elite look amazing, sound rich and offer a level of fit and finish rarely attainable at such price points.
The ADWS77CESHB is a lively dreadnought and delivers a warm, focused tone from its all Walnut construction. Its body is slimmer than our standard dreadnought shape making it a very comfortable instrument while retaining great projection and quick response. The gloss Shadowburst finish on the Walnut creates a rich aesthetic which is perfectly framed by the Flame Maple binding. This is a beautiful guitar and would be a great choice for gigging with its slimmer depth and LR Baggs electronics.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of our culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Our tone woods are carefully cured; our components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques we use are continually researched and developed, and our tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, designed and read more lively sound box.
The term "solid top" of course refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.
Each model is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include bracing architecture that is specifically designed for each body shape or tonal requirement. Our Bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response. Real bone nut and saddle, premium tone woods and our crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction and positively impact the performance of the instrument.
This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience.

Dark warm tone that is balanced yet rich. Doesn't project as loudly as spruce top but a masterpiece nonetheless. Superb in build and flawless cosmetically.
