Looking for small-bodied acoustic that just oozes 1920s vintage vibe & tone with modern playability and intonation? Look no further than the AP66 from Alvarez. True to its roots, the AP66SB is a 12-fret parlor guitar with a slotted headstock. Unlike many smaller-bodied acoustics, its quarter-sawn, hand-sanded scalloped bracing is placed slightly forward (towards the soundhole) which allows the solid mahogany top to resonate more freely. The result is an extremely strong, clear, articulate voice, with an incredible string-to-string balance that lends itself well to both fingerpicking and flatpicking, in standard or alternate tunings. The brilliant high-gloss finish really shows off the beauty of the mahogany back & sides. Throw in a genuine bone nut & saddle, a killer factory setup, and a fit & finish that is unheard of at this price, and the AP66SB just might wind up being your favorite!

I am not a fan of spruce tops and mahogany back/sides. In fact, I own two acoustics which are solid rosewood with spruce. So... I was skeptical of a 325 dollar parlor which was all mahogany. WOW! This guitar sounds good. Very bright and an expanded midrange that makes for wonderful sound. I was also very surprised at the projection from such a small body guitar. I basically bought the AP66 for sitting in an easy chair and practicing without a large body instrument on my lap. Now I can sit with both a small and comfortable practice guitar, and all the sounds that help me make better music! I am definitely a convert to all mahogany guitars. Rosewood is great for highs and lows, but mahogany is a GREAT overall sounding guitar for all ranges.
