Alvarez’s Artist Series is a deservedly renowned guitar line due to the manufacturers’ unbreakable will and effort to give you, the player, a proper tool for expression through its nigh limitless sound capabilities and qualities. The AC70 embodies these values in a brilliant fashion. It is often compared to the AC75 Folk version.
I wouldn’t say there is a better option between two, both have particular designs pertaining to different styles due to their nylon versus steel string combination, respectively. It is ultimately down to preference if you were ever torn between the two models.
Body & Neck
The guitar, unsurprisingly, comes in a classical shape. The hi-grade wood mixture of the body allow for flawless intonation and tonal integrity, helping you deliver your message in a manner you originally meant it to be.
The body is comprised of a hand selected solid A+ Sitka spruce top and its back and sides are made of rosewood with a premium high gloss finish. The Ivory ABS binding maintains the body’s stable durability. The dovetail joint mahogany neck hosts a rosewood fingerboard rigged with 19 frets and a real bone nut 2.05 inches wide.
The guitar is topped off by its classy headstock, which comes equipped with six premium die cast tuning machines. As with the rest of the Artist Series, the AC70 sports an Alvarez rosewood bi-level bridge system, for superlative precision of its D’Addario EXP nylon strings.
The AC70’s sound output is a wonderful showcase of what a true classical guitar should sound like. The instrument delivers authentic mellow tones backed up with rich depth packing an optimal balance between its bass and treble ends. Whether you gently swing at its strings, or you call for a prevailing tone punch – this work of art will answer in accordance to your desires.
Nothing was spared, and nothing is sacrificed in this instrument’s creation process. The playability and comfort are at a satisfying level just as the rest of its features. You can explore its full potential for hours on end in your play sessions and create sounds adding unique character to your style.
The AC70 is unbeatable in its price range, whether you go with a Fender fiddle or any other belonging to the dominant brands on the market, you will not see an increase in quality in comparison to this git. It’s one of the most valuable classical guitars you can come across, and it will give you a run for your money.
