Alvarez AD30 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar

With mahogany back and sides, Sitka spruce top, and rosewood fingerboard, the Alvarez AD30 offers amazing tone at a remarkable price.

The AD30 from Alvarez sets the standard in bang for the buck. With standard features normally only found on high-end instruments, the AD30 is the best-sounding acoustic guitar you can buy for under two hundred bucks. At the heart of the AD30's amazing tone is its hand-sanded scalloped bracing, which allows the top to resonate more freely without compromising strength & stability.

Alvarez's bi-level bridge puts more down-pressure on the 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 looking for a first guitar that won't hold you back, or a better-sounding, faster playing acoustic that fits into your budget, look no further- the AD30 is the one.

i bought this because of the low price and the quality of the parts. i wanted a sitka top, mahogany back, machine cast pins, ebony fret board, bone nut, d'addarrio strings et al. all the parts were pretty high quality so i took a chance on the workmanship. it is a very nice guitar..the best one i have ever owned in fact. it sounded not so good when i first got it but that was because it was new and just breaking in and also because i was way out of practice. my other favorite guitar before i lost it was a $150 epiphone i bought back in the 70's.. the alvarez ad30 is the cheapest guitar alvarez makes i believe and you will be hard pressed to find a bottom of the line guitar that plays better.
