Affordable classical with a hand-selected solid spruce top, rosewood back and sides, and wide-ranging tone.
Alvarez uses traditional style construction for its entire classical guitar line incorporating a Spanish heel neck joint and tapered fan bracing to deliver stability, balance and volume across all six strings. The Artist 70 is a very responsive guitar with a warm and open tone. The high-quality Sitka top and rosewood back and sides give this guitar a very high-end look and feel. <br /><br>Case sold separately.<br><br><strong>Artist Series</strong><br>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.<br><br>Hand-selected solid tops; forward shifted scalloped bracing, awesome tone and player experience….<br><br>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 really release the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series guitars are built to do exactly this.<br><br>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. These components include Ibanez's FSTM bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tone woods. FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are scalloped. Moving the system forward allows for a larger soundboard, which is optimized with a solid maple bridge plate for both strength and energy.<br><br>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. Dig in and they shout right back at you, treat them gently and they whisper and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick.<br><br>The solid ‘A’ grade Sitka spruce and cedar tops are hand selected from quartersawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and its no secret better guitars are made from better wood. Ibanez tops not only look great, but they are stiff and strong and finely grained.<br>
