The Artist Baritone 8-string electro acoustic is a stunning piece of guitar craftsmanship. Featuring a cutaway body, a pair of distinct finishes (shadowburst and black), and an LR Baggs StagePro EQ/Element pickup, these instruments are quality personified. It's one of Alvarez's best-selling models.
Artist Series Perfection
Part of the Artist Series, the ABT60CESHB is tuned from B to B. This means its pitch sits somewhere between an acoustic bass and a traditional dreadnought. The result of this is a deep and thick sound, which remains easy to control. Scales and chord shapes mirror those of a traditional six-string, however they boast a noticeably lower voicing. It's complimented by an LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element Pickup System.
The guitar is a breeze to use too, with a high level of playability that makes it an absolute joy to practice or perform with. A cutaway design ensures you can move quickly, yet precisely along the fretboard.
