SKU: ABT60E

    Product Description

    Alvarez’s acoustic line is notoriously diverse, and features a raft of stunning acoustic guitars that emit the most glorious of tones. The Artist Baritone ABT60E is one such model, boasting a unique Baritone scale length that gives the instrument a lower voicing; factory-tuned down to B.

    Construction

    The Alvarez ABT60E is constructed predominantly from Mahogany, with its body and neck crafted from this popular tonewood. Offering a warm and rich mid-range, this material also accentuates the lows to ensure that the full range of the instrument is heard.

    Adorned with a Solid A+ Sitka Spruce top, this wood adds some crucial top-end crispness. Providing you with plenty of presence, you can play fingerpicked patterns with all of the clarity and articulation you’d expect from a high-quality acoustic guitar.

    The ABT60E features Alvarez’s thoughtful FST2 bracing, which is essentially a forward-shifted X brace design. With the axis of the X closer to the sound hole, this design forms a larger soundboard area that can harness more vibrations from the strings. This results in excellent projection and resonance.

    Electronics & Hardware

    Fitted with an LR Baggs StagePro Element system, the Alvarez ABT60ESHB will offer an authentic acoustic tonality when plugged into a PA System or recording interface. Class-leaders in acoustic pickup technology, LR Baggs’ StagePro system will translate the acoustic voice of the ABT60ESHB very convincingly, capturing its full range.

    Sporting a 3-band EQ section as well as a phase inversion switch, you can tailor the tone of this instrument to suit the acoustic qualities of any space. For example, if you’re playing in a particularly dark-sounding venue, just boost the treble and you’ll cut through effortlessly!

    The Baritone Design

    Baritone acoustics are something of a rarity. Using tweaked bracing and dimensions, you can attain a totally different acoustic texture. Somewhere between a traditional acoustic and a bass guitar in terms of pitch and tuning, Baritone acoustics provide a deep yet glassy tone that’s simply spellbinding.

    Combining modern manufacturing techniques with unique tonewood treatments, Alvarez’ Baritones are among their most popular models, despite their niche design. Give them a strum, pluck or twang and you’ll be transported to a whole new world of sound. If you’re looking for something different, this might just be it.

    About Alvarez

    Established in 1965 by major US instrument distributor St. Louis Music, Alvarez teamed up with master luthier Kazuo Yairi with the aim of producing the finest guitars in the world.

    The success of Alvarez-Yairi guitars helped put the brand on the market, and are still handmade in Kani, Japan to this day. In the decades that followed, Alvarez significantly expanded their operation, and now produce one of the most extensive and diverse ranges of acoustic instruments in the world.

    Ranging from affordable entry-level to world-class handmade instruments, Alvarez have got everything covered. Their instruments have been used by the likes of Johnny Cash, Paul McCartney, Carlos Santana, Ani DiFranco and many more – they’re obviously doing something right!

    A nice guitar, good tone and build but set up way too low and light for an acoustic, will require extra work to get it right, higher bridge and heavier strings. It doesn't help that the choice of string sets for baritones is extremely limited, I will have to make up custom sets as I do for my electric baritones. I really wanted a longer scale but the only baritone acoustic I've seen that would fit the bill is the Tacoma Thunderhawk which is no longer in production and used ones are very rare and expensive.
