Looking for small-bodied acoustic that just oozes 1920s vintage vibe & tone with modern playability and intonation? Look no further than the AP66ESHB from Alvarez.True to its roots, the AP66ESHB is a 12-fret parlor guitar with a slotted headstock. Unlike many smaller-bodied acoustics, its quarter-sawn, hand-sanded scalloped bracing is placed slightly forward (towards the soundhole) which allows the solid spruce top to resonate more freely. The result is an extremely strong, clear, articulate voice, with an incredible string-to-string balance that lends itself well to both fingerpicking and flatpicking, in standard or alternate tunings.The brilliant high-gloss finish really shows off the beauty of the rosewood back & sides, as well as the rosewood headstock overlay. The LR Baggs Element pickup and Stage Pro EQ gets all your tone into the PA or onto the tape. Throw in a genuine bone nut & saddle, a killer factory setup, and a fit & finish that is unheard of at this price, and the AP66ESHB just might wind up being your new favorite!
