The AJ80CE is a part of Alvarez's Artist Series, introduced in 2017. This jumbo guitar features a solid A+ Sitka Spruce top and Maple back and sides, delivering a broad, articulate projection with a lot of low ends and shimmering trebles. The FST2 bracing system, a forward-shifted pattern with asymmetric scalloped tone bars, is used to optimize the air volume and vibration of the large guitar body. This results in great clarity, separation, and even volume across all six strings. For live performances, the AJ80CE is equipped with the LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element pickup.
