Alvarez Artist Series AD60SC Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Cutaway

Sound Quality

The Alvarez AD60SC has that warm sound associated with solid mahogany back and side.  The solid spruce top does a fine job of projection the sound.   Plugged into a PA is where she shines.  The 600T MK II Pickup System is made for the performing musician.  It  does an outstanding job of reproducing an acoustic guitar tone and provides a broad range of sonic control, mixing capability for different combinations of piezo/magnetic/microphone transducers, and features on-board digital chromatic tuner.


I have owned the Alvarez AD60SC for a year and have zero issues.  I have owned (and have setup) several Alvarez guitars over the years with no major issues.

General Comments

A Taylor 714CE with Fishman Prefix Blender and a Taylor 810 Custom are my primary gig axes.  I would not place the Alvarez AD60SC in the same league as Taylor, but it is a solid compromise to taking a $4-$5-k guitar on a gig.       It has an excellent pickup system with all the bells and whistles.  When you plug it into a PA system the instrument comes to life and it becomes apparent that this guitar is designed for the working musician.
