Alvarez Cadiz Flamenco Acoustic Guitar

With a solid AA Sitka spruce top and cypress back and sides, this Alvarez Cadiz Flamenco acoustic is a unique take on the 12-fret classical guitar.

The Alvarez CF6 Cadiz Flamenco Acoustic Guitar evolved from an intense study of some of the worlds great Spanish luthiers such as Ramirez and Torres. Everything about them is carefully considered and purposefully chosen. The body shape is slightly taller, narrower, and more elegant than past Alvarez classical guitars.

The soundbox is more lightly built, with graduated tops, and each brace is custom cut and sanded with 4 varying widths in total. The bracing design gives a slight nod to Jose Ramirez III's asymmetric architecture in the fact that the Cadiz guitars have a treble bar. This helps to stiffen up the treble side of the top a little more, which helps give these guitars a very round, bell like treble response on the first three strings. Alvarez keeps the bass side of the top light by using slightly thinner braces, which contribute to its very open, clear and strong bass response.

Unlike traditional Classical guitars, the Hybrid models do have a trussrod to allow for relief to be adjusted on the radiused fingerboards. Cadiz models are also made with a Spanish heel neck joint. Ramirez and other great luthiers also influenced Alvarez when it came to choosing their scale length. The Cadiz scale length is longer than the standard 650mm (25.6") you will find on many classical guitars. At 662mm (26.06"), this scale length raises the tension a bit, which helps deliver more energy into the soundbox for better response and projection.

My review is based on only my first day of receiving it. It arrived one day late with no damage which in winter time is reasonable. The treble bar claim of improving the treble strings response was one of my reasons for purchase. I did notice a slight improvement in the high E string so no complaint there. Overall I’m pleased with the guitar, the price is fair, your getting your money’s worth. The neck and fingerboard are very good. The action is set high but that gives you plenty of room to set it to your desired height. If I was at a guitar store and could try the guitar before buying, I would buy it, so there is no buyers remorse from buying online without being able to try it first. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because I’ve only had it for part of a day and will need more play time on it to fully evaluate it.
