Compare Alvarez Guitars to Others

by Toni

I have been playing an Ovation 12 string for years. Love the guitar for its sound and action. along with the team I play with. But now I would like a 6 string that is little smaller.

Looking at the local music store at mid-range group of A/E guitars, they did not have Taylors or Martins. Although did have the Alvarez AD60. Comparing with the more expensive ones I loved the sound and feel of the Alvarez.

My question is, how do you rate this guitar with the Ovation, Taylor, Gibson, or Martin?

Alvarez guitars (DO) have solid tops!!!

by: Graham

Alverez has a decent reputation, but, like Ovation, it's not in the same league as Taylor, Gibson et al. Like the GG says, look to Washburn or perhaps Epiphone or Takamine. And buy a SOLID TOP guitar!!!

How do Alvarez Guitars Rate?
by: Guitar Gur

As a general response, Alvarez Guitars has an excellent reputation and history of making acoustic guitars.

The Alvarez AD60 appears to be a discontinued Alvarez model. It's an attractive, entry-level Alvarez guitar sporting a solid spruce top that I assume it is priced around $300?

You will NOT find a comparable Taylor, Gibson or Martin in this price range. If $300 is your price range, check-out the other manufucturers for entry-level solid-top guitars, e.g. Epiphone, Washburn, Takamine. Check-out my Acoustic Guitar Reviews.
