    Product description

    Alvarez dreadnoughts are powerful and wonderful guitars to play with great quality tones from bass to sparkle and everything in-between. The AD60SHB has a mahogany body to deliver strong mids and a warm, articulate sound with high-end cosmetics, while the hand-selected quartersawn solid A+ Sitka spruce top is stiff and strong, ready to project for years to come.

    The L.R. Baggs StagePro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look. The three-band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls delivers warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions.

    The AD60CESHB Dreadnought is part of the Artist Series, now “The Award Winning Artist Series” – winning competitions and receiving rave reviews in the States, Europe, and around the world. It’s a truly designed line of guitars that stands tall and sounds sweet in the solid top guitar market with hand-selected solid tops and forward-shifted scalloped bracing which offer up awesome tone and player experience.

    Each Artist Series model is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience, rarely found in affordable instruments. These components include Alvarez's FST2M bracing system, bi-level bridge, real bone nut, and great quality tonewoods. 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.
