March 12th 2020

ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Alvarez Guitars proudly introduces the new ABT60CESHB baritone to its Artist Series Lineup. The new ABT60CESHB expands the Alvarez baritone offering, the first Alvarez baritone model to feature both a cutaway and stunning shadowburst finish.

“Our ABT60 has been a tremendous success over the years,” says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music.   “Offering our baritone in a cutaway with new finishes seems a natural evolution of the instrument and perfectly in line with our process of continual improvement and elevation of Alvarez products.”

The ABT60CESHB baritone guitar features an A+ Grade Solid Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany Backs & Sides.  The guitar is delivered in a cutaway with a shadowburst finish and comes complete with LR Baggs Stage Pro electronics.  Tuned from B to B, a baritone offers guitarists a chance to explore untapped sonic ranges and unlock creativity in songwriting and production.
