“Favorable coverage inspires us to continue our culture of constant improvement, “ Says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music.   “The AD60 is a benchmark instrument for us in that it’s a shape and price point that is very competitively placed and thus very important for us to not only get right, but come as close to perfection as we can. We hope our customers find that we’ve brought the same attention to detail and quality in all of our models.”

The Guitar Magazine is one of the UK’s premiere acoustic and electric guitar periodicals and offers in depth coverage of the guitar and music industry.
