Jumbo guitars were developed to deliver volume and high end projection. Hence there big bottom end, and narrow waist. Maple has also been the go-to material for this type guitar, as the maple accentuates the high end and keeps the bass from getting too boomy. It works, and this Alvarez really impressed a great sounding guitar; rich articulate, and full bodied. They say acoustics only get better as they get older, and this one sounds it.
This guitar is in great condition with no significant scatches, dents or dings. Fret wear is also negligible and we've gone through the guitar, polished the frets, moisturized the fret board, set the action, and installed a new set of Graphtech bridge pins.
For build quality and sound, this guitar is an absolute steal. We were genuinely impressed by this guitar, and we expect you will be too.
