About This Listing

Up for sale is a brand new Alvarez Artist Series AB60CE Acoustic Electric Bass Guitar with a Natural Finish.

The SYS550 designed by B-BAND is a pro level EQ and pick upthat reproduces the sound of the guitar very closely with great clarity. B-BANDuse a patented under saddle electret film pick up which eliminates synthetic orprocessed sounds often heard with Piezo or other styles of pickup. The resultis a very true, acoustic sound. SYS550 also has an accurate, backlit chromaticdigital tuner.

Artist Series is now “The Award Winning Artist Series” –winning competitions and receiving rave reviews in the States, Europe andaround the world. It’s a truly designed line of guitars that stands tall andsounds sweet in the solid top guitar market.

The term “solid top” of course refers to the soundboard ofan acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated.However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the soundautomatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument onlyimproves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to reallyrelease the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built todo exactly this.

Each model is designed to get the best out if itscomponents, and for them to work together to produce a tone and playerexperience, rarely found in affordable instruments. These components include ourFST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tonewoods.

FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both the X bracesand asymmetric tone bars are scalloped. Moving the system forward allows for alarger soundboard, which is optimized with a solid maple bridge plate for bothstrength and energy.

The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the trebleand 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 andthey shout right back at you, treat them gently and they whisper and respondinstantly to the lightest strum or pick.

The solid ‘A’ grade Sitka spruce and cedar tops are handselected from quarter-sawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and its nosecret better guitars are made from better wood. Our tops not only look greatbut they are stiff and strong and finely grained.
