Alvarez ADE90CEAR Artist Elite Acoustic/Electric Guitar

Alvarez has been apart of the Melody Mart brands since the 1970s! They have been one of the leading acoustic guitar brands in the U.S.A. and around the world for nearly 50 years. Its image is synonymous with quality and innovation. Alvarez instruments are known for their tone and feel and some of the most amazing artists over the last five decades have gravitated towards the brand and its guitars.

Plenty of volume and low end, with comfortable bevel-edge armrest and single-cutaway design, and the added versatility of L.R. Baggs electronics.

The ADE90CEAR Artist Elite Dreadnought acoustic-electric gutiar is a serious dreadnought with great character and a killer tone. Its AA North American, solid Sitka spruce top and Macassar ebony body gives you lots of volume and low end with super clear trebles. Aesthetically, the guitar oozes quality from its premium tonewoods, L.R. Baggs electronics and ebony bevel armrest. This is a stunning guitar with a really high-end vibe and big voice.

A case is sold separately.

Artist Elite Series
Master Luthiers around the world have been crafting bevel-edged armrest guitars for many years. 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.

After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Their 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 the tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.

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 Elite Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include bracing architecture that is specifically designed for each body shape or tonal requirement. Alvarez's bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response. Real bone nut and saddle, premium tonewoods and Alvarez's crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction and positively impact the performance of the instrument.

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.
