Traditionally, Parlor guitars saw a huge rise in popularity during the early years of the 20th Century, but waned in popularly with the introduction of the hugely popular Dreadnought style. In recent years, however, the smaller-bodied Parlor guitar has seen a resurgence in popularity, especially with travelling musicians, thanks largely to their portability and comfortable design.
Versatile and Affordable High-Grade Parlor Acoustic
Alvarez's AP70 is one of the company's best-selling models, and despite the traditional look utilises modern construction techniques to offer a more contemporary sound with bags of projection. These guitars are both vocal and dynamic, and are suitable to any play style.
Alvarez's Best-Selling Parlor Acoustic
With the Alvarez AP70E you get a high-quality Parlor acoustic guitar that's been designed and constructed with more than five decades of guitar-making expertise. Featuring a solid Sitka Spruce top, Rosewood back and sides, and an LR Baggs electronics system, the Alvarez AP70E certainly demonstrates the company's commitment to design.
Every inch of this guitar has been meticulously designed and constructed to offer you an incredible playing experience. Each of the tonewoods has been specially cured, each component carefully designed, and even the painting, sanding and polishing techniques used represent the pinnacle of Alvarez's research and development capabilities.
Exquisite Tonewood Choices
The Alvarez AP70E is constructed with a Solid Sitka Spruce top and a Rosewood back and sides. Sitka Spruce is one of the most commonly used tonewoods for acoustic guitar tops, and helps generate a broad dynamic range, acommodating numerous play styles, whether you want to go with all-out aggressive strumming or light-fingerpicking.
As one of the most popular and musically rich tonewoods, Rosewood offers a sweeping frequency range at both ends of the tonal spectrum. This wood sounds deeper in the low ends and brighter at the top ends that other woods can manage. This iconic wood is incredibly versatile, and when partnered with Solid Spruce can produce a harmonically rich voice, with a bright and sparkling top end.
Complimenting the natural sound of the tonewoods is a fantastic LR Baggs Element pickup and StagePro EQ preamp system. These two come together to help accurately recreate your guitar's natural sound for amplification via an acoustic amp or PA system.
This guitar can now be yours for a fantastic price, but don't forget that here at PMT we have a wide-range of Home Delivery options available (including with 0% interest) as well as free home-delivery on all orders above Â£99.
