Product Description

A small bodied acoustic with old-school vibe and tone! The Alvarez AP66 Parlor Acoustic Guitar gives you the great sound, look and feel of classic parlor-style acoustics of the 1920s. True to its roots, the AP66SHB is a 12-fret parlor guitar with a slotted headstock.

Unlike many smaller-bodied acoustics, its quarter-sawn, hand-sanded scalloped bracing is placed slightly forward (towards the soundhole) which allows the solid African mahogany top to resonate more freely. The result is an extremely strong, clear, articulate voice, with an incredible string-to-string balance that lends itself well to both fingerpicking and flatpicking, in standard or alternate tunings.

The brilliant high-gloss Shadowburst finish really shows off the beauty of the mahogany back & sides. Throw in a genuine bone nut & saddle, a killer factory setup, and a fit & finish that is unheard of at this price, and the AP66SHB just might wind up being your new favorite!

This is a little gem at the street price. The action was high, as expected, but with proper setup, it plays great. Sounds nice and at this price point, especially with the low E dropped to D. It's nice enough to be stored in a good case, which you will have to look for online. It requires a case to fit a 39" guitar.

Beautiful and sounds great

Product Review

I enjoy playing this guitar. It is really a beautiful instrument and plays and sounds great. Only cons are frets are a tiny bit sharp on the edges and as with my other Alvarez guitars, the tuners are not the very best.

Très satisfait et bon son

Product Review

Très bonne qualité pour le prix. Une Guitare qui résonne très fort pour le petit format. Esthétique du binding de contour à améliorer (inégale) mais c'est pas grave pour le prix..

Outstanding bang for the Buck!!

Product Review

I own a Taylor 314CE that I keep humidified as I live in Arizona and wanted a "couch" guitar for daily playing within easy reach. My budget was $300 but after reading reviews on this guitar I decided to extend the budget a little and go for the Alvarez parlor guitar and couldn't be happier. Right out of the box the action and playability was superb, tone is great. It really projects for a parlor sized body. Quality materials and workmanship and the guitar is quite beautiful to look at. I just can't put it down and my Taylor hasn't been out of the case since I got the Alvarez. I would recommend this guitar to anyone, and the smaller body size and 12 fret neck would allow a child to play it as well. It would be a great first guitar for the serious student. Very playable. Love it!!!Great

Great for finger picking and flat picking as well though mine came without a pick guard but I like it anyway.

Extremely playable, good action, intonation. It won't need a professional set-up.

Better than expected.

Beautiful

No comparison. I think the Alvarez is a quality instrument at a very affordable price.

Perfect.
