I've recently purchased this guitar and couldn't be more happy. I have found a guitar that i have to play; I am drawn to it. The action is amazing, the looks are amazing, and the sound beats Martin. I have recently play some Martins in the $1200 range and the ad60s simply blew them away. Buy this guitar please. You will not regret it. Amazing. Wow. I am going to go play it right now!!
I just got this guitar today and its amazing! The neck is very smooth, the action is low enough for comfort but high enough for loads of sustain and bass, the wood is BEAUTIFUL (never seen wood like this in guitars from less than $500)the only thing I did was change the strings. Also the saddle and the nut are grapphite so they are very durable and provide sustain. Overall this is a great guitar for the intermediate or pro player. The reason I dont recomend it for newbies is that this guitar doesn't have a cutaway and could be frustrating for begginers to reach the higher frets. I recomend buying a gig bad from musician's gear(the acoustic elite one) its very amazing and it fits the guitar just perfect.
I've played many other guitars that, while two or three times the price, do not sound as good as my little AD60S. To my ear this guitar sounds as good as a mid-range Martin. I highly recommend it.
I've been playing on and off for 40 years. Saw one of these while I was killing time on a business trip and was blown away by the sound. I've played Taylors, Epiphones, Ibanez, and Yamaha, before I picked this guitar up. The sound is incredible for the price. Setup was just about right straight out of the box, just had to tweak the truss rod a little bit. The action was pretty much right on after the tweak. Looks great, and has held up well to being carried behind the seat in my pickup and on airplanes. Stays on a stand in the house so I can pick it up and play whenever. It comes with Elixer strings that give a a very balanced sound, but switching to D'Addario strings will warm it up a little bit. I liked it so much I bought an AD60S-12 to go along with it.
You'll never go back. This is my first guitar and I don't ever plan on buying anything other than Alvarez. It has an amazing sound, bright and clear melodic. I have played many guitars that cost twice as much or more, that don't have the sound quality of this Alvarez.
I love this guitar...my friend has it as a starter guitar. I'm teaching him how to play. I played it the other day in an audition and it did not disappoint. I loved this thing. The action was perfect. The tone was crisp and fresh. such a good guitar to play.
I bought this guitar almost 6 months ago, and have taught myself to play during that time. I researched the hell out of all the lower priced acoustics and am so happy I settled on this one. I also have a very nice Washburn, which sounds very nice, but this one is by FAR my favorite. It rings beautifully, nice low action, and a satin neck. Honestly, it is a beautiful looking guitar, but in a plain way. But it is light, and the sound that comes from it makes me want to cry. Incredible. I just added Elixir light strings. Sustain and tones are just right. I would stick with the lights on this one. I tried mediums and was very dissapointed. I am totally in love with this guitar. My wife is very jealous of her. Look no further...this in the one.
I had to choose between several guitars for a quik gig. I was choosing Martins and Taylors, I mean I have two of each, but this was an emergancy gig and didnt have them with me. but then I saw this one on the wall and loved the looks, I played it and fell in love. Been my main stage guitar since then. Youre gonna love it!
I bought this guitar about a year and a half ago, and the only thing that's changed since the day I got it is the fact that it sounds better. The action is low, it looks great, but the tone-- the tone rivals Martins, Taylors, and Gibsons. People say you get what you pay for, but that isn't the case here. You get much more than you pay for when you buy this guitar.
This is a great guitar if you are experienced or a beginner. And for the price? You won't find better quality for your dollar. Play one at a music store before you buy it online to convince yourself!
I've been playing guitar for over a year now, and decided to get something new, because my first guitar was a Burwood, and if you haven't heard of one of those, you don't want to. This Alvarez sounds simply amazing. I've played Gibsons and Martins in the music stores in town, and this Alvarez can compete with both in tone, sustain, and volume. It not only has the warmest sound you'll ever hear, it looks good, too. It's a unique style, but it really grows on you, and every time I pick it up out of my hardshell case, I'm amazed at the sound it has. It comes with Elixir strings on it, but I'm not sure if they're polyweb or nanoweb. For the money, you really can't find a better guitar. It's great for both starters and intermediate players, and believe me when I tell you, when you buy an Alvarez, you won't regret it.
i just bought this guitar it stays in tune well and sounds great its been easy for me to start learning guitar with this and it is also beautiful wood so overal a great guitar
When I first got the AD60S, I spent hours picking it out. I knew once I picked a few bars that I had found the one I wanted. It's got a very rich and warm tone that I have yet to hear on any other acoustic I've ever played. The guitar itself is very light and easy to handle; and the neck is slim enough to allow for very quick action. Even playing a really expensive Martin doesn't compare to the joy I get when playing the AD60S...
I had been looking for an acoustic guitar for a few months and had my eye on a Martin DX cutaway or a Takamine jumbo 523. Both of which were around 650 -700 bucks. Well at the last minute my christmas bugdet took a hit because of reasons I won't go into. I was walking through one of the many local guitar stores and saw an "Almost Perfect" AD60S - there is a spot in the top about the size of a pen head. I picked it up and started playin and I bought it right there. It plays just as well if not better than any others I'd tried. Great guitar for beginner or intermediate player looking for a good sound at a low cost.
