Alvarez AED66CE Artist Elite Acoustic Electric Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

The Alvarez AED66CE Artist Elite Acoustic Electric Guitar is a dynamic dreadnought instrument that resonates with warmth and clarity. Crafted entirely from Mahogany, this guitar offers a focused tone that's both lively and expressive. Its elegant design is accentuated by an Ebony bevel armrest, adding a touch of sophistication to its aesthetic appeal.

Equipped with an FS6 forward-shifted bracing pattern, the AED66CE maximizes the soundboard's vibrational properties, resulting in a larger-than-life sound with exceptional projection. The high-quality solid African Mahogany top further enhances the guitar's sonic capabilities, delivering a rich and immersive playing experience.

Featuring a cutaway design for easy access to the upper frets, the AED66CE comes fitted with the LR Baggs StagePro Bronze pickup system. This side-mounted EQ includes the renowned LR Baggs Element under-saddle pickup, offering precise control over volume, bass, and treble settings, as well as phase adjustment. The inclusion of a large backlit tuner ensures convenient tuning on stage or in the studio, while the battery box, integrated into the endpin jack compartment, allows for easy battery replacement.

Part of the Artist Elite Series, the AED66CE showcases Alvarez's commitment to premium craftsmanship and exquisite tonal qualities. With its carefully selected tonewoods, flawless gloss finish, and ergonomic design features such as the slim armrest and slightly thicker bevel, this guitar offers a comfortable playing experience without compromising on performance.

Alvarez's meticulous approach to guitar building extends to the selection and treatment of materials. All solid tops undergo a rigorous curing process known as Advanced Tonal Response (ATR), which enhances wood stability and resonance. The effects of ATR are evident in the guitar's clarity, responsiveness, and overall tonal complexity, ensuring a sophisticated and refined sound from the very first strum.

The Alvarez AED66CE Artist Elite Acoustic Electric Guitar represents the pinnacle of Alvarez's craftsmanship and dedication to excellence. With its superb tonal qualities, impeccable playability, and thoughtful design features, this instrument offers a remarkable value proposition for discerning musicians seeking a top-tier acoustic-electric guitar.
