Product Highlights

Product Description

The CF6 Cadiz from Alvarez is an outstanding flamenco guitar with a comfortable feel and, of course, great sound! 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.

In order to make the guitars as responsive as we could, we had to keep them as light as possible in construction while staying true to traditional design. So in the standard models there are no trussrods. Our necks are three-piece and a solid Ebony centre rod gives us the strength and lightness we need.

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 650mm 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.
