Alvarez ABT60 Baritone Guitar
 
An affordable acoustic six-string baritone from Alvarez.
July 24, 2014

Alvarez Guitars was one of the first companies to offer an acoustic baritone guitar, introducing the YB1 in the mid-1990s. Today, baritones are not uncommon, but Alvarez’s ABT60 remains an impressive instrument at an affordable price. The guitar has a jumbo body, built with a solid spruce top and laminated mahogany back and sides. It has a 27¾-inch scale length, which allows for a low baritone tuning (B to B) using heavy strings.

SPECS: Jumbo body with 14-fret neck. Solid spruce top. Laminated mahogany back and sides. Mahogany neck. Ebony fingerboard and bridge. 27¾-inch scale. 1 11/16-inch nut width. Enclosed chrome tuning machines. Made in China. $399 street. alvarezguitars.com
