The AGA99-CUSTOM is a beautifully developed Grand Auditorium that overachieves in terms of both tone and looks. Aesthetically the figured Acacia is one of the most stunning of all tonewoods. It is finished in Shadowburst with a deep shine from our thin, poly gloss and looks really rich.  This custom model features Macassar Ebony for for the body binding and armrest, and production numbers are limited to just 18 pieces for the USA.

The AGA99 has a great full tone, lots of bottom end clarity and shimmering trebles with an instant response.

It also offers added functionality and comfort with its cutaway and slim bevel armrest, making the AGA99-CUSTOM a great looking, versatile instrument. It is fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ w/Element Pick Up.

Master Luthiers around the world have been crafting bevel-edged armrest guitars for many years. The feature not only makes the guitar more comfortable to play but also allows the maker to demonstrate their skill and craftsmanship in producing beautiful instruments.

After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of our culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Our tone woods are carefully cured; our components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques we use are continually researched and developed, and our tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, designed and lively soundbox.

The term ?solid top? of course refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include a bracing architecture that is specifically designed for each body shape or tonal requirement. Our Bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response. Real bone nut and saddle, premium tonewoods, and our crafted attenuated finish all further the quality of construction and positively impact the performance of the instrument.

This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience.

Thank you for choosing Alvarez.
