Product Description

The Alvarez AP66E Parlor Acoustic Electric Guitar combines a classic parlor-style body and features that yield incredible 1920s vibe with professional electronics for today’s guitarists! True to its roots, the AP66ESHB 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 spruce 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 finish really shows off the beauty of the rosewood back & sides, as well as the rosewood headstock overlay.

The LR Baggs Element pickup and Stage Pro EQ gets all your tone into the PA or onto the tape. Throw in a genuine bone nut & saddle, a killer factory setup, and a fit & finish that is unheard of at this price, and the AP66ESHB just might wind up being your new favorite!

Fantastic parlor guitar, especially for the price
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I rarely if ever write reviews of products but often use them as a general guide in my own purchases. It's time to put some karma back into the system here and give just a brief sense of this guitar. I think it is a phenomenal instrument for the money. I have a large stable of mostly acoustic instruments and I normally prize playability and tone far above aesthetics. However, since I was in the market for a parlor, the distinctive looks on this guitar seduced me. Reviews had been almost uniformly positive (something that rarely happens,) so I pulled the trigger. Really I cannot put it down. Besides being an absolute head-turner, It is so sweet sounding and comfortable to play. The parlor size and mahogany top impart a different sonic character. Words cannot describe sound very well, but the note separation and clarity/sustain are really compelling. I debated between acoustic and acoustic-electric and am glad I got the later. The B-band sounds great and no looking for tuners!

Great Player and Sounds Fantastic
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar plays perfectly out of the box. Sounds big and full electronically. 1 3/4" nut width has lots of room for finger style playing. Acoustically, sounds very balanced and full. Not as mid-rangey as I thought it would be. Nice!
