Alvarez Guitars AG608CESHB Grand Auditorium Acoustic Electric  - Shadowburst/Gloss

The AG 8-string has a superbly open and resonant voicing and instant response. This is a beautiful looking guitar with a flawless deep shine, thin poly Shadowburst finish, North American Sitka spruce top and fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element Pickup.


The sound of a 12-string is unmistakable, but 12 strings on a neck can make it a challenge for some players. There is a lot of tension and the nut width is generally wider. That’s why Alvarez created their 8-string, bringing you 12-string shimmer with less tension and a standard width neck and nut.

By doubling up on the G (3rd) and D (4th) strings, it’s quite amazing how much 12-string shimmer you can get from just adding these two octaves. It also makes this guitar great fun for lots of exploration, and the octave tones when fingerpicking add a little extra dimension and charm.
