Alvarez : Left Handed Acoustic Guitars

Alvarez is an acoustic guitar manufacturer, founded in 1965 and based in Missouri, USA.  Apart from the high end Yairi models (not available left handed) all Alvarez guitars are produced in China.  They are owned by LOUD Technologies which also runs the Mackie, Ampeg and Crate brands.

Unfortunately, unlike most other acoustic-only brands Alvarez does not offer many of its guitars in a left handed version.  Alvarez currently offers only two left handed acoustic guitars, both steel string dreadnoughts. The RD16L is from their affordable ‘Regent Series’ whilst the AD60L is from the slightly more expensive ‘Artist Series’.

Alvarez Website

As I write this, the Alvarez website is undergoing a bit of a makeover.  There is currently no FAQ section which comments on left handed availability, however the left handed models are clearly displayed when browsing through the differing guitar ranges.
