Alvarez AC65Hce Classical Hybrid Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Natural

<p>From Alvarez:</p>
<p>The AC65Hce is constructed in the traditional sense with fan-style bracing for both clarity and balance across all six strings. A phenomenal hybrid, this modern instrument bridges the gap between steel string and nylon string guitars.</p>
<p>The 65Hce is joined at the 14th fret, unlike a traditional classical guitar which is joined at the 12th, making this feel more familiar to steel-string players. It features a narrower nut width than standard classical guitars and has a radiused fingerguard, rather than flat. All carefully considered details culminate in less of a departure from steel string familiarity for those players looking for a nylon string sound.</p>
<p>The AC65 features a high-quality Western Red Cedar for a warm voice with an open projection, ideally suited for fingerstyle playing with a quick and clear response.</p>
<p>This cutaway model allows for easy access up the neck and is fitted with the LR Baggs StagePro Bronze. The StagePro Bronze is a small-footprint side-mounted EQ incorporating the renowned LR Baggs Element under-saddle pickup. This is a low-profile unit with a large backlit tuner, volume, bass and treble controls and phase. The battery box is built into the end pin jack compartment for easy access with a simple push to open and change batteries.</p>
