Alvarez AFA1965 Solid A+ Sitka Spruce Top, Acacia (Koa) B&S Folk Guitar, Shadowburst/Gloss - AFA1965                  
Alvarez's Artist Series is now “The Award Winning Artist Series” – winning competitions and receiving rave reviews in the States, Europe and around the world. It’s a truly designed line of guitars that stands tall and sounds sweet in the solid top guitar market. Hand selected solid tops; forward shifted scalloped bracing, awesome tone and player experience….

In 2015 Alvarez Guitars celebrated a half century of refined and ever-evolving craftsmanship. To mark this milestone achievement, Alvarez created the AFA1965, part of their 1965 Series, a gorgeous line of guitars that exemplify everything they’ve learned over the years in terms of sound, aesthetics, and affordability.

“We want every guitarist and Alvarez enthusiast to be able to join us in this 50 year celebration,” says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music. “Very often commemorative guitars are so expensive that they’re out of reach to the everyday player. Our goal with the 1965s was to create a line with beautiful appointments and tone, but make them as accessible as possible.”

The APA1965 OM/Folk is made with premium North American, solid A+ Sitka spruce top, a beautiful Acacia back and sides, and  handcrafted Paua abalone purfling. Other appointments include mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays, premium die-cast tuners, and a bi-level rosewood bridge.
