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.

I bought the Alvarez AD60 in burst for my adult son after considering 3 or 4 other brands,....I made the correct purchase. This guitar is amazing. I own a Martin D28, a Gibson Southern Jumbo, and 3 other various brands and the Alvarez compares favorably to any of them in my opinion. Beautiful craftsmanship and finish, nice hardware, really comfortable neck, and an absolute pleasure to play. Warm resonant lows, sparkling clear highs..Really, I cannot say enough about this guitar. I told my son if he ever wanted to sell it, I get first option.
Nice guitar for your money but needed some serious setup work! And, for some reason there was masking tape over the truss rod adjustment hole.
This guitar is amazing!!!Beautiful sitka spruce top w/mahogany back/sides and neck. Actions was low and frets were beautiful and level. I would put this right up there with a Martin D18 at 7 times less the price. This guitar projects nice and loud with a nice mellow,warm tone. No need drop thousands on a Taylor or Martin guys!!Give this guitar a shot and u won't regret it.
This is by far the best acoustic for under 350 bucks. The sound is sharp and bright. Feels and plays great. Looks great, too. If you are in the market for an acoustic guitar, look no further, you have found your new guitar.
This guitar is everything you would expect from a Top of the line Guitar costing. 5x as much. Perfect action tone looks. I bought this one becouse I could not believe how good my Jumbo was....Thats right I bought this Alverez just to see! They are both perfect Alverez is the Bomb. This is what I love about "Guitar Center" I shopped on line, if I dont like it I take it to the store get my money back NO QUESTIONS. Glad I was supprised becouse thies guitars are fantastic. Try them out.
My first decent guitar. Played it at a local showroom and loved it. Was a little worried but decided to take a chance on one of the factory refurbished guitars. Turned out to be a no brainer. BEAUTIFUL guitar. Looked 100% new. No noticeable defects whatsoever. Couldn't be happier.
What an absolutely beautiful guitar! My wife bought me this for our anniversary/Valentine's Day. It's my first "real" guitar and I am over the moon happy. It's stunningly beautiful and the sound is just amazing. I know in this price range some would almost consider this a beginner/beater guitar but it absolutely has everything I want in an instrument and I plan on caring for it and playing it until I die. Alvarez makes a superb instrument and I will be a customer for life!
