Within the 12-string guitar's body, you'll find a forward shifted x-style bracing design which allows the top to resonate more freely for improved dynamic response and increased volume.
The braces and asymmetric have been scalloped too, further increasing the potential resonance of the solid A+ Sitka Spruce top, and so giving you even more beautiful tone.

Furthermore, thanks to its bi-level design it gives you an improved string break angle over the saddle, improving tone and increasing volume.
The saddle and nut are both made from real bone, providing enhanced sustain while adding a beautifully natural brightness to your tone.
LR Baggs Electronics
Thanks to its high-grade LR Baggs electronics, the Alvarez AD6012CESHB sounds fantastic amplified too.

Capturing the sound of your guitar is an LR Baggs Element pickup.
Your usual acoustic pickups get their signal by only capturing the string vibration. As a result, your tone is lifeless and uninspiring.
In contrast, the LR Baggs Element pickup also tracks the movement of the soundboard therefore giving you the true tone of your guitar's body and the craftsmanship that went into making it.
As a result, you and your audience will enjoy full-sounding, resonant and vibrant tone that would otherwise have been lost.
