Alvarez guitar Alvarez Guitars

Alvarez has been one of the leading acoustic guitar brands in the U.S.A. and around the world for over 45 years. We have been carrying them at HMT for over 20 years, and have been very pleased with their sound, construction, playability, value, and the wide variety of models. Alvarez was established in 1965 by St. Louis Music. Though the company has gone through some changes in recent years, they are now back to their original ownership in St. Louis.

All Artist and Masterworks Series guitars are set-up in the St. Louis shop. The Regent series are also some of the best beginner guitars on the market. Every Alvarez guitar we receive goes through a rigorous inspection process. If it's not up to our high standards, it gets sent back or adjusted. When you buy an Alvarez from us, you can be assured you'll receive an instrument that is set-up correctly. All Alvarez guitars come with a limited lifetime warranty, and we can assist with warranty issues.

All Masterworks Series guitars come with a hardshell case. Some models in the Regent Series come with a hard case or gig bag. If the model you want does not include a case, check out our Access bags & cases or contact us for options. We offer discounts on cases when you purchase a guitar. Not all models listed below will be in stock; feel free to contact us to check availability. And if you need help choosing an Alvarez model, we'll be glad to help!

Shipping and handling by UPS Ground is FREE in the continental U.S. for any Alvarez guitar over $300. For Alvarez guitars under $300, UPS Ground is $15.00. Choose the "US Mail" shipping option when ordering -- we will adjust the shipping price when we process your order.
