Sound Quality
this guitar is made out of the koa wood, and it has a very distinct sound. it is pretty balanced when played unplugged, sometimes when plugged in it sounds very bright to me. i use it in church through their PA system. i really like the sound it has, it's not martin or taylor, but i only paid $299 for it, and it's better than a lot of more expensive and sought after guitars i've played. one thing i absolutely love about this guitar is the intonation. it plays very well and hold it's intonation well. on most guitars i've played, the b string is always out of tune, especially the ones that are as affordable as this one was.
this guiatr is pretty heavy and you get the feeling that it is pretty solid. i would never play without a backup if i didn't have to though, but i wouldn't be afraid to do so. i trust it.
General Comments
i've been playing guitar for about four years now. i own a sigma and an epiphone; both are acoustic electrics. this alvarez blows both of them out of the water, but both of those guitars were junk to begin with. (i'm a poor college student, can't afford much) i played maybe 25 guitars in the 300-600 dollar price range and i only like this one and a dean. i like the alvarez better plus the dean was more expensive. so here i am...the very PROUD owner of an alvarez ad60ck
