Established in 1965 through close collaboration between St Louis Music and renowned luthier Kazuo Yairi, Alvarez guitars offer players a versatile combination of tried-and-tested guitar tones, with modern construction techniques and playability thrown into the mix. Whether you're looking for an early 20th-century Parlor-style model or a modern single-cutaway Dreadnought electro-acoustic, Alvarez Guitars have you covered, and then some.
The goal at Alvarez guitars has always been to create affordable guitars suited to players of all levels, providing the same levels of craftsmanship as their higher-end professional models to every guitar they build. This means that regardless of what guitar you choose from the Alvarez range, you’re picking up a hand made guitar put together by the in-house luthiers. Exceptional attention to detail comes as standard!
We stock the full range of Alvarez Guitars including the Artist Series, Cadiz, Jazz & Blues guitars, Masters and Regent Series, as well as the Alvarez-Yairi special edition models available for special order. Alvarez also produces a wide range of other instruments like Ukuleles available in-store at PMT.
