Product Guide
We believe it’s our duty to make instruments
that help players produce the best songs or
music that is within them. To make guitars
that feel so right and are so interactive and
responsive that they make a connection with the
player that is beyond musical.
The only way we can improve year after year,
like musicians themselves, is to work at it,
experiment, find new angles, try new ways and
search for inspiration.
We constantly develop, we practice, we rehearse
and we look for the best raw materials and
components available just to keep raising the
bar, why?
Because we’re musicians too, it’s in us, we may
spend more time making guitars than music
these days but it’s in our DNA, to move forward
and create and love the guitars we make and our
brand. Alvarez.
The 2013-2014 line is the best we have ever
produced, soulful, toneful and beautiful guitars
ready to make amazing music.

The Alvarez Guitar Shop
St. Louis, U.S.A.
During the course of 45 years the Alvarez
guitar shop in St. Louis has developed the
most comprehensive pre-sale inspection and
adjustment procedure in the industry.
Every single Alvarez instrument, irrespective of its
price point is inspected and adjusted in St. Louis.
We know how important it is for a guitar to not just
sound right, but to feel right too and play perfectly
straight out of the box.
Alvarez instruments go through an advanced
set-up process that includes a full fretboard level
and dress, filing of nut slots and multiple neck/
truss rod adjustments. Every fretboard is oiled,
every note is tested for clarity and bridge saddle
measurements are taken to make sure your guitar
feels and plays just right.
Regent Series
All-New From 2013
How did we make
them better this
time?
In 2011 we launched a great
line of Regent Series guitars
and in order to improve on
them we focused on how we
could deliver more features
and better tone through
improving our production
techniques. Techniques
that would allow us to make
the best value, best quality
entry-level guitars in the
market.
First we scalloped the
bracing system in a way
that gets the best from
laminated construction.
The new Regent 26’s and
27’s will surprise the most
experienced of acoustic
guitar players, they respond
and resonate incredibly well.
We then focused on the finish
and cosmetics and improved
our painting, polishing and
detail work.
The notes Regent Series
produce are rounded and
have depth, which is rare for
laminated construction, this
makes them more enjoyable
to play.
We also now ship every
Regent guitar in a gig
bag, but not just the usual
unpadded freebie. We
designed a super deluxe,
duo-foam bag made from
the finest materials we
could find and filled it full of
protection.
Regent Series sounds and
looks better than it ever
has, it offers unsurpassable
value and appeals to all
players from beginners to the
experienced and it’s tone and
response will blow you away.

Alvarez Electronics
Designed by B-Band
“We chose to work with B-BAND because we thought their
reproduction of acoustic sound was awesome.”
Alvarez SYS650,
designed by
B-BAND.
The 650 uses B-BAND’s
patented electret film
technology replacing the
Piezo materials found in other
acoustic guitar pickups. A
Piezo pickup tends to import
a sound of its own into the
electrified tone, which is
often described as “quacky”
or synthetic – You don’t get
this with B-BAND technology
which works in much the
same way as a condenser
microphone, allowing for
accurate reproduction of the
instruments true voice.
The SYS650 is a dual pick-up
system incorporating one UST
(under saddle transducer) and
an AST (acoustic soundboard
transducer) placed under the
soundboard, the amplified
sound can be blended between
the two pickups to find subtle
changes in response for lead,
picking or rhythm work.
The SYS650 has a fully
chromatic, precision tuner with
backlit LCD screen; 3-bands of
rotary EQ and a notch filter that
helps eliminate feedback while
minimizing degradation of the
overall sound.

We’re really happy to feature this great EQ and pick up in our
Regent Series guitars* The SYS250 delivers superb performance
and acoustic reproduction as well as a fully chromatic, precision
tuner with backlit LCD screen and a 4-band EQ.

Artist Series
Acoustic Instruments
Sometimes we can’t
improve things, or
we haven’t gotten
to a point where we
feel improvement is
necessary.
The sound of Artist
Series is one of these
junctures where we
scratch our heads; we
think they sound so good
we decided to leave the
construction alone.
Artist Series is now
“The Award Winning
Artist Series” – winning
competitions in the
States, Europe and
around the world. It’s a
truly awesome line of
guitars which stands tall
and sounds sweet in the
solid top guitar market.
How could we make it
better? Well we made
them look more beautiful
by upgrading the finish.
We now use a premium
coating and an extended
23 process painting
system that gives Artist
series a lovely glass like,
deep gloss finish and
beautiful shine.
We also added new
models and embraced
the left handed players
of the world by making
left handed options in
Dreadnoughts, Folk/
OM’s, Parlors, Basses,
Grand Auditoriums and
even a lefty Baritone is
on the way.
New to the Artist Series line
This year we introduce the Artist 66’s, a great line of
all mahogany guitars in a fabulous vintage sunburst.
Other new models include the ARD70 round
shouldered dreadnought and our ATD60 solid top,
travel sized dreadnought.
Artist Series has something for everyone; it’s a
comprehensive line of refined, solid top acoustic
guitars with superb tonal qualities.

Masterworks
Acoustic Instruments
Beautifully voiced, professional
guitars made from all-solid,
seasoned tone wood.
All solid wood
really does make
a difference and
we’ve made sure
Masterworks gets
the best out of
their solid wood
construction. They
are very open
sounding, powerful
instruments with
rounded notes and
plenty of bass.
All models are made
from hand selected,
AA solid Sitka
spruce or Red Cedar
tops, and solid,
cured mahogany
or rosewood backs
and sides. Each
component is
made of natural
material including
real bone saddles
and nuts, maple and
rosewood bindings
and purflings, ebony
bridge pins and
green abalone inlays.
Masterworks
feature a one-piece
mahogany neck
with a 50/50 finish,
Grover® tuners and
12th Fret abalone
inlay.
Like Artist Series,
the Masterworks
bracing system
is forward shifted
with scalloped,
hand finished X
braces that allow
these guitars to
project incredibly
well. There’s lots
of sustain and
response no
matter if strummed
or picked, the
separation and
balance across the
strings is easily
audible.
We have also
made Masterworks
as affordable as
possible; so now
as many players
as possible can
enjoy the benefits
of all solid wood
construction.

Alvarez Yairi
Perfection is a journey, not a destination
The wonderful thing about
making acoustic guitars is
they are incredibly sensitive
and complex instruments.
Decades, careers, lifetimes
have been spent trying to
perfect or find the sound
in the luthiers head, but
often it eludes us. Only
time, experimentation and
experience can help us get the
results we are after.
Alvarez-Yairi guitars have
held a special place in
players hearts for nearly fifty
years. Some of the greatest
songwriters and guitarists
ever to grace the planet have
played them. So when we came
to updating the Alvarez-Yairi
Series, we did it with great care
and the reverence it deserves.
Two years of development
has resulted in producing
the finest guitars we have
ever made. Eloquently voiced
instruments, beautifully
balanced with a charisma and
tonal personality you will fall in
love with.
The all-new Alvarez-Yairi Series
is simply superb.
