Alvarez AD60SHB Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar High Gloss Shadowburst

The Alvarez AD60 is a Dreadnought shape with powerful and bold tone. The dreadnought boasts warmth and articulate mids. The tonal woods begin with a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides. This is par for the course for all around great tone the Artist series are known for. The hand selected solid tops; forward shifted scalloped bracing, awesome tone and player experience.

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. These components include our FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut and great quality tone woods.

FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both the X braces and asymmetric tone bars are scalloped. Moving the system forward allows for a larger soundboard, which is optimized with a solid maple bridge plate for both strength and energy.

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 and respond instantly to the lightest strum or pick.
