Artist, Grand Auditorium

The sound of a 12-string is unmistakable, but 12 strings on a neck can make it a challenge for some players. There is a lot of tension and the nut width is generally wider. That’s why we created the Alvarez 8-string, bringing you 12-string shimmer with less tension and a standard width neck and nut.

The G (3rd) and D (4th) strings are doubled up, and it’s quite amazing how much 12-string shimmer you can get from just adding these two octaves. It also makes this guitar great fun for lots of exploration, and the octave tones when fingerpicking add a little extra dimension and charm. The AG 8-string has a superbly open and resonant voicing and instant response. This is a beautiful looking guitar with a flawless deep shine, thin poly Shadowburst finish, North American Sitka spruce top and fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element Pickup.
