Default Alvarez AJ80CE Artist Series Jumbo Acoustic Electric

Alvarez AJ80CE Artist Series Jumbo Acoustic Electric
Does anyone have one of these? I'm a big fan of Alvarez guitars, but I've never had an opportunity to try out one of their jumbos. (The guitar stores in Tucson don't stock very many Alvarez guitars for some reason.) If so, how do you like it?

The GC at Swan/Broadway should have a reasonable selection of Alvarez.

Otherwise, Normally I only see the "Parlors", Folks, OMs, and Dreads.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just visited the GC at Swan/Broadway last night. Right now they have four or five Alvarez guitars in stock, but not the AJ80CE Jumbo. They do have in stock an Alvarez ABT60 Baritone, which is a really interesting instrument. There aren't a lot of baritones out there, and this one goes for $399.00.

This is my first post.

I have an AJ418C ... it's an equivalent. Beautiful instrument. Took me a while to get the feel ... a good setup for fingerstyle with bone for nut, bridge and pins will produce a rich tone. Funny, it isn't as powerful as my 90s vintage Alvarez all acoustic dreadnought for comparison but they have different missions.

So...I used to have an AJ60s.
Same guitar. Mine was a non cutaway.
It was a spectacular guitar. Sound like a good Gibson J45.
Playability like a Taylor.
It also had a J200 pickguard.
It was as pretty as it sounded.
Im currently stalking a replacement.
