Artist Series AG75CE Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar. One of Alvarez's bestselling guitars. The AG75CE is a great all-round instrument for live work or recording. The cedar/rosewood woods create a sophisticated look and the GA body shape is perfect. This Grand Auditorium has the same the scale length (25-1/2") as their dreadnoughts, but a slightly smaller body with a narrower waist that accentuates the trebles. The L.R. Baggs StagePro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look. The three-band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions. Like all Artist Series guitars, the AG75CE is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience, rarely found in affordable instruments. These components include Alvarez's FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tonewoods. FSTM is a forward-shifted X brace design. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are scalloped. Moving the system forward allows for a larger soundboard, which is optimized with a solid maple bridge plate for both strength and energy. The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. These guitars feel right and are exciting to play and responsive. Dig in and they shout right back at you, treat them gently and they whisper and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick. The Western red cedar top is hand-selected from quarter-sawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and it's no secret better guitars are made from better wood. These tops not only look great but they are stiff and strong and finely grained.
