Alvarez

An affordable guitar with a hand-selected solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, and powerful tone.

This Alvarez Artist Series AD60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is a best-selling dreadnought and a truly exciting instrument to play. The AD60 is a member of the Alvarez Artist ’60 Series. Alvarez was careful to get the construction just right to allow this series to sing, and deliver a player experience that's exceptional for a mid-price instrument.

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 doesn't 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 really release the energy a solid soundboard can generate. The Artist Series is built to do exactly this.

Each model is designed to get the best out if its components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience, rarely found in affordable instruments.

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 exciting to play and responsive.

The solid ‘A’ grade Sitka spruce tops are hand-selected from quartersawn wood. This ensures consistent quality, and its no secret better guitars are made from better wood. These tops not only look great but they are stiff and strong and finely grained. This allows them to be cut just that tiny bit thinner, which lets them dance a little more and produce a lot more vibration, and ultimately a richer tone.

All of the components are made of natural materials such as mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays, real bone saddles and nuts and rosewood appointments.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AD60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I bought this about three weeks ago and can't put it down! This instrument has a robust sound for the price and is remarkably easy to play. I replaced the standard d'Addario strings with EXP16's to make it more playable. That may be a personal preference. Low action means you will need to use a lighter gauge string to prevent buzzing.

    This feels very solid and high quality and produces a really warm rich tone. Couldn't ask for much more from a budget guitar.

    Very satisfied with my purchase! Thanks!

        Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AD60 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        I bought the black restock. I couldnt pass up the price drop even though I was skeptical. The guitar looks flawless. Like a new guitar as far as I can tell. The action was low and it played real nice but had some buzz. Had to have the action raised to get rid of the buzz so it doesnt play quite as easy now but overall a great sound at a cheap price.

        The term restock has scared me in the past. Not now. The price was great. I am a songwriter and it records terrific.

            This was the second AD60 that I purchased from M/F in the past 3 weeks, both Natural restocks. Not a scratch on either, as far as I can see. Great bargains!!

                  Great playing and sounding guitar for very litttle money. The sitka spruce top and bone saddle and nut make for a full articulate sound.
