A "First Guitar" Favorite

Alvarez Guitars Now In Stock

Alvarez has been catering to players everywhere for nearly 50 years as one of the leading acoustic guitar brands in the USA. This had us thinking, “Why the heck don’t we have these?” Not to mention, when we ask our acoustic customers if they already own a guitar, we often hear, “Yep. I have an Alvarez.”

Alvarez offers a variety of options, ranging anywhere from $199.99 to upwards of $1,200 – and they’re all beautifully crafted instruments. We’ve found that they shine for beginners and intermediate players, because their offerings in those price ranges blow other brands out of the water. Since they’re known for their comfortable feel and playability, first-time players can really snag the benefits.

If you’re thinking about getting started, or would just like to add another acoustic guitar to your collection, we highly recommend giving one a try from either of these “bang-for-your-buck” lineups.

Regent Series

Ranging anywhere from $199.99 to $279.99, with outstanding quality for the price, you can’t go wrong with an Alvarez Regent guitar. Choose from a dreadnought or folk, with or without electronics, in a Natural or Sunburst finish. Any combination of these features are available, so you can find your perfect match without a problem! Common features in the Regent Series include spruce tops, mahogany back and sides, an included deluxe gig bag, and an SYS250 pickup in the acoustic-electric models.

Artist Series

In the Artist Series, features begin to get a little more sophisticated. Solid wood tops, more body style options such as Grand Auditorium and Parlor, and upgraded LR Baggs Element pickups in the acoustic-electric models are available. These guitars range anywhere from $249.99 to $599.99, and deliver more than you could imagine at those prices. They are great for anyone who is looking to upgrade from their beginner model, or for those who would just like another great acoustic guitar hanging on the wall.

We want to get these guitars in the hands of new players, experienced players - any players! Now, when other stores ask their customers if they already own a guitar, they can say, “Yep. I have an Alvarez. And I got it from Riff City Guitar.”
