Greatest Guitar. Hail Alvarez.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $150.00
Where Obtained: Dragonettis Music Shop
Features:
This Alvarez 5120 is a beauty. Get a new pair a strings on that baby (preferably D'Addrio) and it sounds wonderful. Its basically an acoustic guitar. Soundhole. Thin White outline on body. Rosewood. Natural finish.
Playability:
The action on this guitar is like an electric but not as low. Not high. Not low. Just in the middle where I like it. It is my favorite guitar and I am sticking with Alvarez from now on for Acoustic guitars.
Sound Quality:
I often play alternative with this guitar. David Gray, Dave Matthews. Nothing hard. I save that for my electric. It is so beautifully sounding you could p--- your pants while listening and never even know. Its a very full, I'd say 10% thick sound.
Durability:
I have a room the size of a man's resturant at Burger King and man this guitar takes A LOT of bumbs. And today it looks like brand new.
