Today, we're very pleased to offer this Alvarez Jazz & Blues Series Blues51E/TSB Acoustic-Electric! This high quality, yet surprisingly affordable guitar features an attractive High Gloss Vintage Burst finish, solid A+ Sitka spruce top, arched rosewood back/sides and is equipped with a fantastic sounding LR Baggs Element Active pickup system! This guitar has never been owned, and is in great shape, but does have a ding on the headstock and some light scratches on the soundboard. Other than that it's fine. It plays like butter and sounds wonderful unplugged or plugged in! We ask that you observe its pictures closely and invite you to contact us with any questions you may have.
Built in 1927, US Route 51 has a history forever linked with jazz and blues music. It was the road that many travelling musicians used to make their living, playing gigs between cities such as Jackson, Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee, hotbeds of the American soundscape at the time.
Inspired by the musicians that have travelled this road and contributed to the evolution of music today, Alvarez created the Blues51. This arched back designed acoustic combines a solid A+ Sitka spruce top with a rosewood body, neck and fingerboard to give you a more sweeping frequency range, ideal for reaching all the emotive notes needed to express your feelings. The high gloss tobacco sunburst finish adds to it's vintage appeal and will help it last for years.
