Alvarez offer a guitar line dedicated to the Jazz and Blues genre, paying special attention to tone, detail and quality. This Parlor shaped guitar is slightly smaller than an average sized guitar. The Parlor shape offers a balanced tone with a powerful projection, and also delivers a perfect mid-range tone. This type of body shape has recently had a resurgence with modern players, due to its versatility and compact size, making it a favourite with travelling musicians. Its compact size also accommodates fingerpicking players, as its nipped in waist means it can be held closer to the body.
Crafted from a solid A grade sitka spruce top, along with a mahogany body, the Alvarez Delta00/TSB Acoustic Guitar offers a traditional appearance and a superb tone.

A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.
