1965: A year of inspiration
Frank Sinatra had just played the Peabody Opera House. The magnificent St Louis Arch had just been completed. And in a quiet part of the city, a company called St. Louis Music had a vision. A vision for a line of guitars that could reach out to the musical revolution sweeping the world and inspire a generation of new players.
This new line of instruments would become Alvarez Guitars.
