    I was wanting to get a jet. But I could not get my warden aka wife to let me spend that much. so I added to to my little heard of Alvarez guitars I got my first one back in the mid 70's a 12- string. the next one came almost 40 years later in the forum of a Jumbo. well to day I add a big bother to that group. Alvarez ABT610E Baritone. One day that Jet will be mine.

    Love my Alvarez. Very jealous of Your Baritone. How are the electronics? I got a Alvarez Artist AD80SSB. Its made for guitar forte. Scratch that baby up.

    Congrats, looks like fun!
  5. I had the natural version. It was definitely fun. It made me want to upgrade to a Martin or Taylor baritone but I couldn’t justify the price for something I played occasionally. Which is odd, as I have a room full of guitars I play occasionally.

    From what little I have used it so far there's not been any Problems with it Knock on wood. I do believe I have found one of the sounds I have always been looking for I didn't know so much music of the 60's and 70's where done on a Baritone.

  11. Here’s a question. How do the pickups sound? On the one i had, there was an under saddle and a mike type, with a blend knob to give or take each. Although they worked, i tended to get a lot of the low B string, and the other strings didnt have the same volume. So if i has picking it, the B stood out. Unless i turned the bass down a lot, it was uneven. Not sure if it was just my model with this situation, or is it the nature of a really thick low B string.
