Alvarez Now Shipping the LJ2 “Little Jumbo”

Posted on August 10, 2017

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Alvarez is proud to be shipping its upgraded compact model, the LJ2 “Little Jumbo” guitar. The LJ2 is an enhanced version of the previous model, the LJ60, and debuted earlier this year at Winter NAMM 2017.

“We’re inspired every year to maintain a state of continual improvement,” says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music. “For 2017 we revisited the design of our LJ60 and have released the LJ2, which is louder, more responsive, more articulate, and one of the best travel guitars on the market.”

The LJ2 features a unique jumbo shape in miniature, and has a carefully designed bracing and arched back to give a clear and balanced voicing. The LJ2 features a solid A+ grade Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany backs and sides, and a natural satin finish. The LJ2 comes complete with a 15mm duo-foam deluxe gig bag.

Visit the St Louis Music booth to experience the LJ2 at Summer NAMM. To learn more about Alvarez go to or call +1 314-727-1191.
