A special flat top born and bred for jazz and blues.
2016 sees the introduction of Alvarez new series, Jazz and Blues. Some things in life simply don’t go out of vogue and jazz and blues are two of those things. Alvarez simply wanted to make a guitar line dedicated to these genres, designed from the ground up in order for us to pay special attention to tone, detail, and, of course, quality.
Alvarez's J&B flat tops are vintage all the way, with back-shifted, scalloped bracing and traditional rosewood bridges. The neck profile has a soft-V profile and string spacing is tailored towards fingerpicking. Tonally, these guitars harbor the compression usually associated with smaller-bodied guitars, but due to Alvarez's bracing design, they are a little more “Hi-Fi” and dynamic for a more modern-style projection.
J&B arch tops are the real deal and offer incredible value. It’s been many years since Alvarez created guitars with electro-magnetic pickups, and they wanted to make these instruments special. The arch tops are superb quality and deliver amazing tones and player experience through fastidious design and development and awesome Duncan Designed pickups.
