Overall: I bought this from zZounds and i couldn't be happier with my purchase..The guitar has tone galore and the notes ring on longer than three other brands i bought and returned,yamaha,washburn,takimine, These guitars are Torrifiied from the factory so they are stronger for the humidity and have a Pre-aged quality to them..I see the other reviews that had problems..zZounds handles returns fair and they help you get what you need done..My guitar stays in the case with a humidifier when not used although i could leave it out and i,m sure it would be fine..just not on extreme weather condition days..too dry or too humid..I have recorded this guitar..sounds fantastic..played in a live band with it with a pickup sounded great

Overall: I received my guitar several months ago and wanted to wait a while to review my purchase. After spending considerable time playing this beauty of a guitar I'm still completely amazed by it... It plays wonderfully and the sound that it produces is great, it's got loads of sustain and projects loud and clear sound either when lightly picking or when really pounding the strings.

Overall: First of all, zZounds is an awesome place to buy from. This is my 3rd guitar from them and won’t be the last. Anyway, the md60bg is a very nice guitar with nice appointments. It has a very balanced tone but has deep bass. I’m not sure if you can find a better acoustic guitar for under a grand and I’ve owned somewhere around 30 that fall in that category.

Overall: The one I ordered arrived dry as a bone, the neck humped and warped, the paint shrunk, the top bellied down, a disappointment out of the box. I put a D'Addario Emergency HumidPak in it to see if it would recover, but the guitar is so weather damaged, the screws for the tuners are falling out. The warehouse is not using any effective climate control whatsoever. This guitar shows signs of severe heating and cooling well out of acoustic guitar storage temps and humidity. It's a real nice guitar, but it's been ruined by negligence at the warehouse as this is not the first guitar I've purchased that came through the same warehouses with the same exact type of weather damage. What a shame. What a waste of time and money. What a cheat turning off climate control and selling guitars for new that are weather damaged -- this one was inspected too, it's got the sticker on it. ...inspected, thrown in a box with no humid pack and no climate control, that's a huge problem guys and gals! It's time for the manufacturers to pull their guitars from warehouses like these that try and cheat the customer by turning off climate control. I'd recommend the Alvarez but not from a warehouse that turns off climate control to cheat the customer. If the exchange is weather damaged too, we've got a problem! And save yourself the time and money, the HumidPak Emergency kit doesn't work on a guitar this badly weather damaged!

Overall: I purchased mine in November and about the middle of December the neck and top warped, I dropped it off at a repair shop and was told it was severely dehydrated and was told it's a common problem with Alvarez... Up until these issues it was an amazing guitar... I've owned it since November and since the beginning of January its been in a repair shop and now at the Alvarez service center... Alvarez is denying that the neck is warped so I can look forward to sending it back to my local repair shop when I get it back, on my dime... It was great while it lasted...
