Sitka Spruce Top & Rosewood Body
Sitka spruce is a perfect choice for a guitar soundboard due to its combination of strength and elasticity, delivering a broad dynamic range with crisp articulation and powerful projection. With its stunning rosewood body, the AD70CE delivers a a deep sound in the low end, with a bright top end. Its versatile properties and consistent tone make it a common choice for guitar bodys, as it accommodates a variety of different playing styles including fingerpicking, strumming, and flatpicking.
Forward Shifted Bracing Design for Added Strength
The AD70CE is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience, rarely found in an affordable instrument. One of these key components is the forward shifted bracing structure which features scalloped X braces and asymmetric tone bars. This inventive bracing allows for a thinner graduated top, allowing the soundboard to move more freely, providing warmth, clarity, and balance with dynamic midrange. In addition, by moving the system forward it provides a larger soundboard, which is optimised with a solid maple bridge plate for both strength and energy.
LR Baggs Electronics Delivers a Power Tone
For added volume, the AD70CE is also equipped with an LR Baggs StagePro Element and side-mounted EQ for bigger venues. This discrete EQ sidemount offers a built-in chromatic tuner, as well as a three band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls delivering a warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions. Located on the upper bout, it is easy and convenient to use during any performance.
Real Bone Nut
As well as offering a stunning choice of tonewoods for the perfect tone, the AD70CE also features a real bone nut, which maintains its authentic appearance and offers excellent resonance and sustain. Another benefit of using a bone nut over modern materials is that a bone nut delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer, for the optimum performance.
Equipped D'Addario EXP Strings
Finally, the Alvarez AD70CE is equipped with a set of D’Addario EXP strings, which are plain steel strings that feature hexagonal cores made of revolutionary NY High Carbon Steel. Manufactured in New York, these newly engineered, break-resistant, high-carbon strings deliver unprecedented strength and pitch stability, perfect for any style of playing
