SKU: ABT60

    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 ABT60 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.

    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!
