Alvarez AD90 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar

Mention the word "Koa" to an acoustic guitar player, and you'll get two reactions -- gushing praise for its unique, sparkling tone, and fear and loathing for the dent it'll put in your wallet. But fear not: koa isn't out of reach with the Alvarez AD90.

At the heart of the Alvarez AD90's amazing tone is its hand-sanded scalloped bracing, which allows the top to resonate more freely without compromising strength & stability. And with acacia koa back & sides, you get the amazing sonic detail & chiming harmonics only koa can deliver. Alvarez's rosewood bi-level bridge puts more down-pressure on the bone saddle, creating a more efficient energy transfer from the strings to the top, giving you more volume than you ever thought possible from a guitar in this price range.

Alvarez also refined their neck profile, with a thinner, faster neck that plays easier, yet still feels solid in your hands. If you're searching for that elusive, magical acoustic tone, give the AD90 a try -- you won't be disappointed, and neither will your wallet!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Like butter"
Overall: After maybe 40 guitars I've owned, now I'm in love. This Alvarez is amazing. Each Alvarez guitar is a bargain, and the six I've owned we're all nice players, but the AD90 is several notches above. It sings like guitars I've played which sell at multiples of the AD90 price. This is a keeper.
Style of Music: Blues, rock.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "finally, I found a great acoustic for a small price"
Overall: I saw it advertised as a restock for $275, and jumped at it. The sound is almost magical, due to the acai koa - so rich, with actual depths you can hear as a player, and even more as a listener in front of one. I cant find one single thing wrong with it. It stays in tune wonderfully, even after aggressive playing. Wehn you pick up a Martin that costs 2 grand or more, YOU UNDERSTAND WHY WHEN YOU LAY JUST ONE CHORD. This guitar almost reaches that obscene level. When your acoustic is this kind of quality, you find yourself playing it longer, and more often. I think they call that enjoyment, yet it also seems to be creatively pushing you to find the right notes.. After trying EVERY acoustic in stores that cost less than $500, this is the only one that leaps to the top, and i paid much less than that. Once in a while, this disabled veteran gets a great deal.
