Posted on May 15, 2019

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Alvarez Guitars are ready to ship the addition of two new 12 string models that were added to their award winning Artist Series lineup earlier this year. The new 12 strings feature Jet Black and Shadowburst finishes and LR Baggs electronics.

“We’ve seen a higher demand in our natural 12-string models over the last year,” Says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music.  “We wanted to extend the offering a little with these great colors, demonstrating our crystal clear finish and big chiming tones.”

The new Artist Series 12 strings are made from Solid A+ Sitka Tops and Mahogany back and sides.  Both models feature Alvarez’s FST2 Forward shifted bracing system and flawless, attenuated gloss finish. Both models come complete with the awesome LR Bags StagePro element pickup system and will be shipping in February 2019.
