Alvarez Unveils Artist Series Grand Auditorium 8 String

March 2021


ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Alvarez Guitars proudly introduces the all-new AG60CE8SHB, an acoustic-electric 8 string Grand Auditorium in a beautiful shadowburst finish. The AG60CE8SHB joins the family of 8 strings from Alvarez which began last year with the 8 string baritones, ABT60CE8BK and ABT60CE8SHB. The Grand Auditorium 8 string had its debut at Winter NAMM 2021.

“Following the success of our 8 string guitars last year we wanted to take the next step,” says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music. “With this 8 string Grand Auditorium we double up on the G (3rd) and D (4th) strings and its quite amazing how much 12 string shimmer you 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.”

The AG 8-string has a superbly open and resonant voicing and instant response. It’s 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 Pick Up.
