OVERVIEW

An affordable guitar with a hand-selected solid cedar top, rosewood back and sides, and B-BAND electronics.

One of Alvarez’s bestselling guitars. The AG75CE is a great all-round instrument for live work or recording. The cedar/rosewood woods create a sophisticated look and the GA body shape is perfect. This Grand Auditorium has the same the scale length (25-1/2") as their dreadnoughts, but a slightly smaller body with a narrower waist that accentuates the trebles.

The L.R. Baggs StagePro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look. The three-band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions.

Like all Artist Series guitars, the AG75CE 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 Alvarez's FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tonewoods.

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.

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.

The Western red cedar top is hand-selected from quarter-sawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and it's no secret better guitars are made from better wood. These tops not only look great but they are stiff and strong and finely grained.

      Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AG75CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I admit that I had my eye out for an Alvarez acoustic guitar for some time as I needed an instrument to play in small to medium venues at church. I was looking for a quality instrument that would do the job and yet wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. This was one of the three Alvarez models I was looking at and when it came up on MF as a level 2 used item, I went for it. The grand auditorium body shape is one of my favorites. So, I was ready to be happy with it even before I got it. Upon receipt, I was pleased to discover that the instrument's condition was better than the "very good" rating designated by the level 2 label. The set up was near perfect and even the strings did not need immediate replacement. I think that I probably gave the guitar more wear and tear in the first several weeks I've owned it than it had incurred since it was brand new. If anything, I like it better now than when I first got it. Therefore, so far, so good. Let's see how I feel in six months or a year.

          Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AG75CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          This is my third Alvarez guitar and the one constant is that they always sound way better than they cost. Excellent value. My go-to practice guitar is an Alvarez, but it doesn't have electronics, so I bought this one for performance use. I play in our church band. I play acoustic most of the time, so it is important to have a solid guitar, but I don't really want to spend thousands on a "nice" guitar. This guitar fits my needs nicely. You can buy a better guitar, but you would have to spend A LOT more money.

              You can't go wrong on the Alvarez Artist series guitars. Better than Bluedridge and most Martin's.

                  Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AG75CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  I'm a retiree trying to learn the guitar and my first "real" guitar was an Alvarez. I have been looking, studying for months and making a list of dream guitars. I had no intention of buying a new guitar but checked Musicians Friend one too many times and they had a Godfather price on it. I told my wife, "Sorry baby, I'm buying a guitar," and pulled the trigger.

                  I am totally satisfied, so far. The guitar is beautiful, the rosewood gleams, it sounds great - when other people play it, at least - and the sustain is impressive. It has a 1.75" nut which helps me because my hands are a little bigger than average. It has real bone nut and saddle which I thinks sounds right. It also has a cedar top and rosewood back and sides which, with the Grand Auditorium shape gives a different sound than my spruce on mahogany dread.

                  This is a very nice guitar and I am proud to own it.
