Utilizing solid-spruce tops with scalloped bracing, Alvarez Professional Series models now feature solid-wood backs of rosewood and mahogany for superb tone and projection. Steel string models are elegantly appointed with abalone sound hole rings and ivory/herring-bone body binding. Nylon string models feature intricate sound-hole mosaics and multiple body binding.

The rosewood PD100S presentation dreadnought ($899.00) incorporates a spectacular "Tree of Life" fingerboard inlay, as well as generous amounts of abalone body and headstock inlays.

The Alvarez PD90S ($799.00) rosewood dreadnought offers the classic "deep bass" and clear treble desired by players of all styles. The PF90S ($749.00) OM Style folk model features strong balance between lows, mids, and highs, ideal for recording and fingerpicking styles. The PF90SC ($ 899.00) cutaway utilizes the highly acclaimed Alvarez System 500 MKII pre-amp/EQ, for amazingly accurate acoustic guitar reproduction.

Featuring a solid mahogany back, the PD80S ($699.00) produces the classic mahogany tight bass and airy high end. Also available are the 12-string PD80S-12 ($759.00) and cutaway acoustic-electric PD80SC ($879.00) with the System 500 MKII.

The PC50S ($799.00) nylon string model features a solid-spruce top and a solid back of exquisitely figured Indian rosewood, and the cutaway PC50SC ($999.00) offers the live performer remarkably natural classical guitar tone when interfacing with modern sound re-enforcement and recording equipment.
