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.

The 1965 Series

The 50th Anniversary of the brand will see the release of some stunning commemorative models, each featuring tightly grained, seasoned woods, hand cut Abalone purfling, Acacia back and sides and our wonderful Shadowburst finish over the shimmering Sitka.
