The unique tonal character of the Alvarez Blues 51 combined with the easy playability make this guitar a joy to play. It's 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. With a genuine bone nut & saddle, you'll get maximum energy transfer from the strings to the neck & body for impressive output & projection from a smaller-bodied instrument, and the LR Baggs VTC electronics give you the convenience of plugging in without compromising the vintage look.
If you are looking for good ol' fashioned vibe, look no further - the Blues 51 has mojo like no other!
