Alvarez Guitars: AF410 Grand Concert Folk

by Guitar Guru

”Great Grand Concert Guitar That You Can Afford!”

The Alvarez Artist AF410 Grand Concert Folk Guitar not only features a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, but has a white multi-ply body binding that gives this guitar fantastic features that one would normally associate with a much more expensive model.

The solid spruce top on this great acoustic guitar gives this model a lovely warm tone that will have you smiling every time you play it. And with a list price of just ~$349 you will also be smiling when you realize that you have saved the $50 you would have spent to purchase the comparable
Washburn R314KK Parlor Acoustic Guitar

The small curvy shape of the Alvarez Artist AF410 is, like the Washburn R314KK, a great fit for those who cannot manage the larger Dreadnought or Jumbo models. And it is decidedly easier to play for anyone except those whose longer or broader fingers may have problems with the smaller-sized Grand Concert or Parlor sized models. This means that even smaller players can finally have a great sounding guitar that will look and sound great. But even larger players will appreciate just how cuddly the AF410 really is and how it draws the player into its smooth tone.

One of the great things about the Alvarez is that it comes in a wide range of colors and finishes to suit your needs and/or personality and that will look great on stage or hanging on your living room wall. Another surprising feature is its great projection, which rivals even some of the Alvarez dreadnought models for volume, is not something you would expect from a guitar of this size and shape.

Indeed, the Alvarez Artist AF410 Grand Concert Folk Guitar is a steal for the price, and makes a great beginners guitar, especially for those smaller players who want high quality sound but who cannot manage the size and depth of a standard sized dreadnought.

A Truly Great Bargain Guitar NEW
by: ajay

I just purchased the Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary "Flag" edition, which is very similar to this guitar. The only difference being that the top on my "Dead" guitar is solid Grade A Western Red Spruce instead of Solid Sitka.
I also have a Gibson Advanced Jumbo with Sitka Spruce Top and Solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides. My Advanced Jumbo cost five times as much as my Alvarez, and the Alvarez truly gives my Gibson a run for its money in the tone department. These Alvarez Artists are really a bargain Ayou $349. If You are looking for a REAL guitar for under $500 this is it. Look no farther. You will fall in love with the build quality, tone, looks, and volume.
Alvarez has hit the sweet spot in a beginner's guitar that You may never want to replace. If I had bought this guitar first, I would have never bought a Gibson. It'd that good. I truly love my Gibson, but I would have been more than happy to just have this be my main guitar forever. This is truly a great guitar, and You will love it. Guitars open up the more that You play them. My Alvarez is awesome brand new, and Zi can't wait to hear it once it opens up.

Solid-Top! NEW
by: Graham

I've never played one of these, but a solid-top is usually a solid choice. This would make a decent beginner's guitar at an acceptable price. It would probably need some 'tweaking', but most new guitars DO. Definitely worth a look! :)
