The Alvarez Artist Series AD60-12 Dreadnought Twelve String Acoustic Guitar model is the 12-string version of the best-selling AD60 and sounds incredible. The AD60-12 is a member of the Alvarez Artist '60 Series. Alvarez was careful to get the construction just right to allow this series to sing, and deliver a player experience that's exceptional for a mid price instrument.
The term "solid top" of course refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it doesn't necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to really release the energy a solid soundboard can generate. The Artist Series is built to do exactly this.
Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience, rarely found in affordable instruments.
The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. These guitars feel right and are exciting to play and responsive.
The solid ˜A' grade Sitka spruce tops are hand selected from quarter-sawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and its no secret better guitars are made from better wood. These tops not only look great but they are stiff and strong and finely grained. This allows them to be cut just that tiny bit thinner, which lets them dance a little more and produce a lot more vibration, and ultimately a richer tone.
All of the components are made of natural materials such as mother of pearl and abalone inlays, real bone saddles and nuts and rosewood appointments.

Cool body design and sweet appointments for a solid instrument at a great price.
Master Luthiers around the world have been crafting bevel-edged armrest guitars for some time. The feature not only makes the guitar more comfortable to play, but also allows the maker to demonstrate their skill and craftsmanship in producing beautiful instruments. Inline with their philosophy of making great guitars accessible to as many players as possible, Alvarez Artist Series now offers superbly designed armrest models. The AG70AR delivers the great tone Artist Series is known for while also being a beautiful, affordable guitar.
After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes and materials is still at the heart of their culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Tonewoods are carefully cured; components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques used are continually researched and developed, and tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.
This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience.
Alvarez believes their multi-award-winning Artist Series is one of the finest solid top guitar lines in the world today and demonstrates our commitment to design. The term "solid top” refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.
Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include Alvarez's FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, great quality tonewoods and thin finish. FST2 is a forward shifted X-brace design, meaning the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole and therefore creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. The scalloping design was the result of years of continual development in their Yairi workshops.
The Artist Series sound and personality is open and powerful. FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. Artist Series feel right and are exciting to play; no matter if you are strumming hard or picking lightly, the guitar will do what you ask of it.
Along with a more angled headstock, their bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angel of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to the sound, feel and response, which are also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles.

For our special left hand troubadours, we're happy to offer The Legacy CW from Art & Lutherie. This is a concert sized acoustic that is built for modern-day pickers, bluesmen and singer-songwriters. The generous cutaway gives you easy access to the high frets and the Godin Q1T on board electronics make it ready to rock whether you're on stage or under the stars. Underneath its tastefully rustic finish, the Legacy CW features a solid spruce top with wild cherry back and sides for a dynamic voice that is both authoritative and harmonically rich.
The A&L Legacy CW Left hand guitar features:
Art and Lutherie is one of Godin's younger brands but they have really made a name for themselves in the world of affordable acoustics. They are built with the attention to detail that we have come to expect from our Canadian friends, and they have put an impressive focus on environmental stewardship, building their guitars with 95% Canadian wood with no clear cutting, meaning they reclaim wood from fallen giants.
A&L also uses high quality construction techniques to insure great tone, long life and great playability. These features include quarter-sawn spruce bracing, a compound curved top, reverse grain kerfed headstock, maple dowel fortified heel, and Graphtech nut, bridge pins and compensated saddle.
The Legacy CW is a comfortable concert sized with a look that is both retro and pleasingly hip. They really go all out on the aesthetic at A&L, combining beautiful rustic finishes with vintage open gear tuners and interesting pickguards. The top is solid pressure-tested Sitka Spruce and the back and sides are a special 3-part laminate of Wild Cherry. Spruce tops are the norm on acoustics for their bright snappy response, but Wild Cherry is an excellent alternative tone wood that Godin has used with great success. Cherry wood has a tonal profile somewhere in the middle of Mahogany and Maple. Not as warm and midrange-forward as Mahogany and less bright and "dry" than Maple. The low and midrange frequencies are assertive, with a clear and percussive character and reasonable low end extension. The combination of the Spruce top and the "maple-esque" properties of Cherry make the high end of the Legacy sparkle, which bring out great dynamics especially suitable for finger pickers. We really like it, and it's nicely detailed and more complex than some maple guitars. And while it won't punch out the type of low end you'd get with a rosewood dreadnought, the guitar projects well and has impressive volume for a moderately priced concert size guitar.
The Legacy CW looks, sounds and feels broken in right from the start. Even though these guitars come in at a great price-point, the A&L Legacy CW has tons of character and is suited for both beginner and more experienced players. As a daily player, songwriting companion or Coffeehouse workhorse, it's a very satisfying and attractive instrument. Affordable acoustics have come a long way, and the A&L Legacy makes no apologies.

For the timeless folk-rock sound that defined an entire generation, look no further than the Bedell Coffee House Orchestra.

There is something striking about the sound of rosewood paired with Adirondack spruce… when strummed, the Coffee House guitars take you right back to that moment in time when music was changing forever, when coffee houses were a radical, safe place for youth who wanted to change the world, and who believed in equality, justice, love and authentic self-expression.

We did it! We have taken the densest tonewood – it actually sinks in water – and found magic music wood. Cocobolo is twice the density of mahogany so when guitar builders use it to the same dimension, the instruments are heavy and not responsive. We have sanded our backs to a specified weight achieving a frequency response that has proven to be incredible. Maybe even more robust than Brazilian rosewood which is in the same species family. Our Revolution Dreadnought has a huge sound, dynamic bass, surprising sustain…it just sounds and looks beautiful.
The hard rock maple neck is also part of the magic. Hard maple is significantly denser than Honduran mahogany. With the compound taper dovetail neck joint connecting the one-piece maple neck to the cocobolo body - the sound energy is alive.
To top it off, we selected an old-age stiff Adirondack spruce top to drive the sound. Of course the tonewoods are Hand Tuned so the frequencies of the back are several half steps higher than the top and the bracing and tone bars have been carved to make sure the entire surface is tuned to the same frequency throughout.
The Revolution is an incredible sounding dreadnought. Additionally, the top and neck burst accentuate the dynamic coloring of the cocobolo and the turquoise accents are just right.
