Here's a tip for the first time guitar buyer:

Skipping the pickup and built in tuner generally saves $40-$100 on any given guitar, not to mention the need to buy an amplifier. This money can be put towards a higher quality guitar, say one notch up in the product line or even private guitar lessons.

The Alvarez Artist Series

We are currently stocking the AF30CE and AD30CE from the Alvarez Artist Series. This series raises the tonal standard by being constructed with solid tops as opposed to laminate wood. This provides a deeper, richer tone, as well as more dynamics and volume. The AF30CE and AD30CE both feature a satin open pore finish as well as B-Band electronics. List $449 Sale $299.99
