This is a great guitar, it has stunning wood grain that doesn't show well in the photos.  It has a straight neck, low action and a beautiful tone.  The pickup works great and has a nice, bright tuner.  It looks almost new, but as a refurbished instrument, it is stamped "used" on the back of the headstock.  It has some very light scratches on the bass side of the headstock by the nut that don't show in photos.  

The Alvarez Artist Elite AGE910CEARSHB Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a beautiful Grand Auditorium with great character and an open, sophisticated voice. With an amazing look and rich sound, the Grand Auditorium Artist Elite features a solid spruce top braced with an FS6 forward shifted, scalloped bracing system. This provides the instrument with a dynamic projection and instant response. Built with a Macassar ebony body, binding and slim bevel armrest, this Alvarez acoustic-electric is equipped with an Alvarez SYS250 preamp with sidemount 3-band EQ, Presence control and a convenient chromatic tuner. A Bi-level bridge is designed to heighten string tension and improve sustain and response.

The term “solid top” of course refers to the soundboard of an acoustic guitar being made of solid wood, rather than being laminated. However, just because the top is solid, it does not necessarily mean the sound automatically benefits from this feature. The tone of the instrument only improves significantly when the whole guitar is built correctly to optimize the energy a solid soundboard can generate. Artist Series is built to do exactly this.
