If you're looking for easy playability, unique tonal character, and good old fashioned vibe, look no further - the Blues 51 has mojo like no other! It has a unique combination of a 12-fret neck, a 00-size body, and an arched back, and the result is pure tonal magic. A taut low-end, a throaty midrange, and smooth, mellow highs just gush out of it.
Play this thing with a slide and it'll make your arm hairs stand up. The neck profile is the perfect soft V, and it feels broken in straight out of the box. And with a genuine bone nut and saddle, you'll get maximum energy transfer from the strings to the neck and body for impressive output and projection from a smaller-bodied instrument. Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That's definitely the case with the Alvarez Blues 51.
