OVERVIEW

Solid top. Solid tone. Solid choice.

The Artist Series AD610ESHB is an elegant, cosmetically rich guitar with a powerful and open tone. The solid A+ Sitka spruce top generates a great amount of energy to make this an exciting and responsive instrument suitable for any style of music.

The Shadowburst finish on the AD610ESHB is stunning, carefully crafted to produce a mirror-deep shine and sophisticated appearance. It is fitted with the SYS250 3-band EQ with notch filter and backlit digital tuner.

After 50 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of their culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. Tonewoods are carefully cured; components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed, and the painting, sanding and polishing techniques used are continually researched and developed. The result is a tone impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively sound box.

The AD610ESHB is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce balance, lively projection and great response. These components include Alvarez's FST2 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, high-quality tonewoods and thin high gloss finish. 

FST2 is a forward shifted X brace design. This means the axis of the X is closer to the sound hole, creating a larger soundboard area and allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are carefully scalloped. FST2 also creates very good balance so both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.

Artist Series guitars feel right and are exciting to play; no matter if you are strumming hard or picking lightly, the guitar will do what you ask of it. Along with a more angled headstock, Alvarez's bi-level bridge increases string tension by making the break angle of the strings from the saddle to the top more acute. Improved string tension adds to the sound, feel and response, which is also heightened by the use of real bone nuts and saddles.

Comments about Alvarez AG610ESHB Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have only had the guitar for two days but everytI me I walk passed it, I have to pick it up. It is a beautiful piece of wood.

It feels well constructed and sounds great. The only other mention-able guitar I have owned is the big baby taylor. I feel like this keeps up with that guitar no problem and I will get to use this for recording due to electronics.

The neck is quite a bit thicker than my other guitar but I see nothing wrong with that.

I played an alvarez in a music store and was highly impressed with the sound vs cost. I am glad I made this purchase.

    Comments about Alvarez AG610ESHB Grand Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    After a lot of research I took the chance on this guitar when a Stupid Deal of the Day made it really tempting. I love this girl. Super expressive to your picking and very balanced sound. Bright yet warm enough. I love this guitar. Might send it to a luthier for a custom set up, might not not sure yet.
