The Alvarez Artist Series AD30 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is an entry point for the Artist Series. This is a well-made instrument, delivering real value. The classic Dreadnought tone is enhanced with advanced scalloped bracing and other premium components such as bone saddles and nuts and a bi-level rosewood bridge.

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 does not 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. Dig in and they shout right back at you, treat them gently and they whisper warmly and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick.

New Artist Series guitars look stunning and come in a huge variety of shapes, colors and wood choices. All of their components are made of natural materials such as mother of pearl and abalone inlays, real bone saddles and nuts and rosewood appointments. But the magic really starts when you pick one up and play it. Case sold separately.

    Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AD30 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    This Guitar has a natural finish. There is NOTHING semi-glossy about it. It comes with very nice strings and it also comes with a low action. All I had to do was slightly tune it out of the box. For $200 or even $1000, it is worth the money. This thing sounds JUST as good as any Martins or Taylors that I have tried at GC, and I have tried many. It sounds JUST as good as the Big Baby Taylor, at half the price. The natural finish and the Abalone on it are stunning. I found a really great guitarist at GC to test it out, as I'm a novice. He could not believe this thing was a cheap $200 guitar. I have been playing a Fender FA-100 for 2 months and needed something MORE, that had a larger nut that I could actually fit my fingers in on an "A" Chord. This thing has a bit more space with the wider nut that is exactly what I needed. The Guitar was made in the "PRC" = China. Don't let THAT deter you as it did not have a flaw on it. This thing bleeds quality. I was blown away by how nice it was straight outta the box

    Comments about Alvarez Artist Series AD30 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I use this pretty much all of the time, it sound great and id recommend this to anyone looking to get a high quality beginner guitar; the only thing that was unpleasant about this purchase was the D string tuning post was a bit sharp, and cut through the string, it was an easy fix and i haven't had any problems with it otherwise.
