What we say:

Alvarez acoustic guitars began life in St Louis, Missouri in 1965 by master luthier Kazuo Yairi. A well known guitar brand in the States, many top players like David Crosby, Thom Yorke, Devin Townsend and Any DiFranco have proudly toted Alvarez guitars live and in the studio.

Nowadays most Alvarez guitars are made to exacting standards in China and distributed all over the world, bringing traditional building techniques, understated good looks and high quality control into the hands of players of all descriptions.

This AD60 model is a dreadnought from the Alvarez Artist range. This traditional and handsome acoustic has an A+ grade solid Sitka Spruce top to ensure a strong and bright sound. Layered Mahogany is used for the back and sides.

It’s a clean and crisp look for this AD60: a subtle inlay at the 12th fret of the Pau Ferro fingerboard and a tasteful abalone rosette combine with a unique bridge shape and Ivory coloured multi-ply binding make up the quietly good looking visuals of this understated guitar.

The guitar has a Shadowburst Natural Gloss finish apart from the neck which has been thoughtfully given a semi-gloss finish to support easy hand movement.

If you need a quality, affordable acoustic and do not need a pickup system, this solid-topped AD60 from Alvarez is an excellent, understated choice.

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 5/5 (1 reviews)

This guitar cost L249. I have a number of higher end guitars and wanted something to keep out of the case for knocking around with. The guitars fit and finish was perfect. The burst is very nice and I?d happy pay double what they charged. The set up wasn?t amazing out the box and needed some work on the nut and saddle to get the action to a comfortable level. I?d expect to have done more than this with a guitar at this price. The frets were level and the neck was straight. This guitar is now super easy to play, nice fast neck and it responds really well to different playing styles. I really can?t believe how good this thing sounds for the money. The Spruce top is nice. The tuners are much smoother than I expected and the bone nut and saddle is a bonus. I gig 2-3 times a week and mainly use a J-45 or my 000-15m Martin. I?ve decided I?m going to put a pickup in the Alvarez and start taking it out I like it that much.
