Alvarez Cadiz Series
Superbly Responsive...Designed and Developed in Andalucia
CÁDIZ offers responsive and engaging nylon string guitars of a quality and playability we think you’ll adore. Everything about them is considered and chosen. They are a new shape, different to Classicals we have made in the past, slightly taller, slightly narrower, more elegant. The soundbox is more lightly built, the tops are graduated and each brace is custom cut and sanded with 4 varying widths in total.
The bracing design gives a slight nod to Jose Ramirez III’s asymmetric architecture in the fact that our guitars have a treble bar. This is to stiffen up the treble side of the top a little more which helps us create very round, bell like trebles on our first three strings. We keep the bass side of the top light by using slightly thinner braces which helps us give the player very open, clear and strong bass response.
We believe CÁDIZ will engage any player who is looking for different tones from an engaging nylon string guitar. We hope they will create an intimacy between you and the instrument and as always we have done all we could to make beautifully designed instruments, as affordable as we could.
