Mention the word “Koa” to an acoustic guitar player, and you’ll get two reactions — gushing praise for its unique, sparkling tone, and fear and loathing for the dent it’ll put in your wallet. But fear not: koa isn’t out of reach with the Alvarez AD90.
At the heart of the Alvarez AD90’s amazing tone is its hand-sanded scalloped bracing, which allows the top to resonate more freely without compromising strength & stability. And with acacia koa back & sides, you get the amazing sonic detail & chiming harmonics only koa can deliver. Alvarez’s rosewood bi-level bridge puts more down-pressure on the bone saddle, creating a more efficient energy transfer from the strings to the top, giving you more volume than you ever thought possible from a guitar in this price range.
Alvarez also refined their neck profile, with a thinner, faster neck that plays easier, yet still feels solid in your hands. If you’re searching for that elusive, magical acoustic tone, give the AD90 a try — you won’t be disappointed, and neither will your wallet!
