ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – 2015 is a milestone year for Alvarez Guitars, one that marks a half century of refined and ever-evolving craftsmanship. As a celebration of this landmark Alvarez is unveiling a line of guitars that exemplify everything they’ve learned over the years in terms of sound and aesthetic, and releasing them at an incredible value: The Alvarez 1965 Series.
“We want every guitarist and Alvarez enthusiast to be able to join us in this 50 year celebration,” Says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music. “Very often commemorative guitars are so expensive that they’re out of reach to the everyday player. Our goal with the 1965s was to create a line with beautiful appointments and tone, but make them as accessible as possible.”
The 1965 Series are made with premium North American, solid Sitka tops, beautiful Acacia back and sides, and with handcrafted Paua Abalone purfling. OM folk size in a flawless Shadowburst finish.
