Often seen gracing countless stages across the USA, the Alvarez Artist series is the very definition of Value for Money. These professional-grade guitars have succeeded in raising the bar for where Quality and Affordability meet, and it's no wonder they've been one of the USA's leading acoustic guitar brands for the past five decades!
Stylish and Affordable Acoustic Guitar
With the Alvarez AD60SHB you get a beautiful Dreadnought-Style acoustic guitar that's been constructed with a solid A+ Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides, and finished in a thin Shadowburst Gloss coating. You'd be forgiven for thinking these high-specced guitars would cost a small fortune, but they represent some of the best quality instruments available in their price range.
Exquisite Tonewood Choices
When pairing a solid Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides, the tonal outcome is exquisite. Whilst the Spruce provides the guitar with a bright and well-projected voice, the Mahogany produces a tone that's both vibrant and rich in harmonic overtones, making the guitar suitable for a wide range of musical genres, from folk to country and beyond.
To further enhance the guitar's voice, the Alvarez AD60SHB is fitted with an FST2 Forward Shifted, Scalloped X-Bracing system. This particular type of bracing allows the guitar's top wood to resonate more freely than a standard bracing, resulting in much stronger and clearer bass frequencies, and much better voice projection.
Every care has been taken to ensure that the Alvarez AD60SHB is of a fantastic quality. Each of the tone woods are carefully cured, each component carefully designed, and even the paint used in the finish was carefully selected to bring you a guitar that's both stylish and toneful.
As with all Alvarez Artist Series guitars, the price of the AD60SHB in no way reflects the quality that you get.
