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.
Traditional, Left-Handed Parlor Style 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 AP70WL you get a high-quality, Left Handed Parlor acoustic guitar that's been designed and constructed with more than five decades of guitar-making expertise. Featuring a solid Sitka Spruce top, Walnut back and sides, and a Natural Gloss finish, the Alvarez AP70WL certainly demonstrates the company's commitment to design.
Spruce and... Walnut?
Sitka Spruce has been used for the soundboard of this guitar, as it is renowned for its qualities as a tonewood. Combining strength and elasticity, this Sitka Spruce top offers a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation.
The back and sides of the guitar have been crafted from layered Walnut. Having layered walnut used this way adds a great resilience to the guitar's body while looking great. The Sitka Spruce top and Walnut body wood combination projects a beautiful sound that will only improve with age.
Professional Grade Construction
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.
This guitar can now be yours for a fantastic price, but don't forget that here at PMT we have a wide-range of finance options available (including with 0% interest) as well as free home-delivery on all orders above £99.
