DISC Alvarez Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary Acoustic Guitar, Flag

Details
The Alvarez Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary Acoustic Guitar features the distinct stylings of the Grateful Dead image and official artwork on it's cedar top. Both Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir collaborated with Alvarez luthiers in the 80s to create their own signature models. This collaboration resulted in Bob Weir's WY1BW, the result of years of fine-tuning, which Bob still plays today. This Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary guitar is constructed using the Alvarez FST2M hand finished, forward shifted, scalloped bracing system for optimal performance and response.

Other appointments include custom mother of pearl inlays, a rosewood fingerboard and bi-level bridge and 12th fret lightning bolt inlay. This Anniversary acoustic is constructed using the Alvarez FST2M hand finished, forward shifted, scalloped bracing system for optimal performance and response.

Custom Artwork and Lightning Bolt Inlays

As part of Alvarez's 50th Anniversary, the Alvarez luthiers have created this special guitar to commemorate their long-time collaboration with the iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. The Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary acoustic features a solid A grade Western red cedar top, screen-printed under a flawless satin finish. Other appointments include custom mother-of-pearl "Lightning Bolt" inlays and the band's iconic Dancing Bear on the back of the headstock. This model has a cutsom flag design.

Inspired by classic Grateful Dead images, the custom artwork designs on these guitars have been applied using a custom screen printing process. Thanks to mother nature, each guitar top varies slightly in both grain and colour, making every Alvarez Grateful Dead guitar a unique instrument, just like every Grateful Dead concert was its own unique experience.
