Alvarez Artist ukuleles are lively and sophisticated instruments that deliver an exceptional player experience.
Alvarez ukuleles have been carefully designed to bring players an open-sounding and responsive instrument with good projection, rich volume and fine tone.
All Alvarez ukuleles are constructed with a dovetail neck joint for optimal strength and transfer of energy between the neck and body. The bracing design is a modification on traditional fan-style braces to optimize response. This response is also aided by a solid ?slotted? rosewood bridge, which enhances projection and helps to make string changes easier and quicker.
