The Alvarez Parlor Acoustic Guitar AP70E pays homage to the guitars of the 1920's & 1930's. With its traditional 12 fret design, small body, solid Spruce top, rosewood back & sides and LR Baggs StagePro Element pickup system the Alvarez Parlor Acoustic Guitar AP70E is built for the blues!! The Alvarez Artist Series AP70 Parlor Guitar is one of the most popular models in the whole Alvarez line. It has fantastic energy and response for its size and is incredibly comfortable to play. Center-scalloped bracing was used for this parlor, which lets the top really react to the finest of touches. This probably might make you play this small-bodied guitar differently to how you would larger instruments, which leads to all sorts of great stuff. The AP70 is a member of the Artist Series 70s, which are stunning guitars made from hand-selected A-grade Sitka solid tops with rosewood backs and sides. The high gloss finish really brings out the beauty and grain in the rosewood and like all Artist Series they have advanced scalloped bracing and all natural components. Just like Artist 60 models the 70s have incredible tone and the rosewood helps to accentuate the highs and lows just a tad more.
