Alvarez Showcases Blues Series with New Video

Posted on March 21, 2016

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Alvarez is proud to release an online video that features the incredible blues guitars from the new genre-specific Jazz & Blues Series. The video presents a candid interview with Chris Meikle – Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music – as he chronicles the purpose and design that went into the blues models: Blues51, DeltaOO & DeltaOO Deluxe

“With Artist and Masterworks Series, we felt we had achieved a great, versatile line of guitars,” Meikle commented during the video. “We saw the chance to do something specific to the blues genre, a modern take on the compressed, growl-like sound that guitars of the early blues era had.”

The Blues 51 and Delta OO are vintage guitars all the way, featuring an arched rosewood back, V profile necks, back-shifted bracing, wider finger spacing, classic bridge designs and traditional “teardrop” sunbursts. Both are available as acoustic electrics and sound great plugged in with the new LR Baggs VTC systems.

Meikle continued, “Alvarez is about delivering unsurpassable value for money through fastidious design, I believe we have achieved that again with our Jazz & blues Series.”
