Wonderful all-around dreadnought with attractive finish and high-quality electronics.

The AD610ESHB is an elegant, cosmetically rich guitar with a powerful and open tone. The solid A+ Sitka spruce top generates great energy, making this an exciting and responsive instrument suitable for any style of music. Comes with the Alvarez SYS250 EQ and pickup system with 3-bands of EQ and a backlit chromatic digital tuner.

The Shadowburst finish on the 610 is stunning, carefully crafted to produce a mirror-deep shine and sophisticated appearance.

Artist Series
The Alvarez Artist Series is now “The Award Winning Artist Series” – winning competitions and receiving rave reviews in the States, Europe and around the world.

Each model is designed to get the best out of its solid top and components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience, rarely found in affordable instruments. These components include their FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and saddle and great quality tonewoods.

The sound is warm, open and powerful, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. These guitars feel right and are rewarding to play.

Comments about Alvarez AD610ESHB Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Travel for work so wanted a good sounding value price AE for the road. MF had these on sale and think this is the same as the AD60 with electronics MF seems to add the "1" to the Alvarez line for GC/MF exclusive runs.

Well finished, nice sounding solid top, really like the B-band for the plugged in sound. Built in tuner works well. Like that you can get to the 9 volt from the back of the guitar instead of the little bag inside that most that use 9 volts have. Smart design concept for the battery compartment, no reaching through the sound hole and having to take off or loosen the strings.

Tried out the same price range in other brands and to me the Alvarez sounds the best and at the price I paid a great value.

The body is gloss, hard to tell in the photos, and well done. The finish is not as thick as on some of the lower end brands. The neck is satin which is nice. Mine has a slight V shape to it, nothing extreme so be aware of that. To me the tone seems voiced in the range of a Taylor rather than a Martin or Gibson.

Mine came with the action a little high so sanded a bit off the saddle and had to adjust the truss rod some. Tuners seem to be a lower end "Grover" clone but work fine.

Great sounding beginner guitar or for any player wanting something cheap but good sounding to use out and leave your more expensive guitar at home as in my case.

Wish this level and value of guitars were around 30 years ago when I started playing.
