An ultra-responsive flamenco-style acoustic-electric with remarkable playability and pro-grade LR Baggs Stage Pro electronics! Alvarez's new CADIZ series of nylon string guitars evolved from an intense study of some of the worlds great Spanish luthiers such as Ramirez and Torres. Everything about them is carefully considered and purposefully chosen. The body shape is new, and different to classicals they've made in the past - slightly taller, slightly narrower, and more elegant.
The soundbox is more lightly built, with graduated tops, and each brace is custom cut and sanded with 4 varying widths in total. The bracing design gives a slight nod to Jose Ramirez III’s asymmetric architecture in the fact that the Cadiz guitars have a treble bar. This helps to stiffen up the treble side of the top a little more, which helps give these guitars a very round, bell like treble response on the first three strings. Alvarez keeps the bass side of the top light by using slightly thinner braces, which contribute to its very open, clear and strong bass response.
Unlike traditional Classical guitars, the Hybrid models do have a trussrod to allow for relief to be adjusted on the radiused fingerboards. CADIZ models are also made with a Spanish heel neck joint. Ramirez and other great luthiers also influenced Alvarez when it came to choosing their scale length. The CADIZ scale length is longer than the standard 25.6 inches you will find on many classical guitars. At 26.06 inches, this scale length raises the tension a bit, which helps deliver more energy into the soundbox for better response and projection.

What started as a simple string and pedal sales catalog has grown exponentially over the past thirty years. The early days were a time where catalogs didn't have much of a presence in the industry, but what began as a college dorm room operation grew rapidly. In 1986 we moved to a full product offering and 64-page catalog, which over the years has grown to 162 pages. Join the AMS family and get your free catalog now!
