Alvarez MD60 Acoustic Guitar

$736.97

Alvarez has been one of the leading acoustic guitar brands in the U.S.A. and around the world for nearly 50 years. Its image is synonymous with quality and innovation. Alvarez instruments are known for their tone and feel and some of the most amazing artists over the last five decades have gravitated towards the brand and its guitars.

Alvarez was established in 1965 by St. Louis Music. In the late 60’s the company began working with Master Luthier, Kazuo Yairi. This collaboration turned out to be a remarkable success and Alvarez-Yairi guitars are still handmade in the Yairi factory today, in the small town of Kani, Japan.

The bond between SLM and Yairi is underpinned by a desire to produce some of the finest guitars in the world. Their instruments are a mix of tradition and innovation, and the culture is continual development and improvement. You’ll find this attitude evident in all their guitars from Regent Series to Masterworks, so at each price point true value and quality is found.

The result of that hard work has lead to Alvarez and Yairi guitars being played by amazing musicians such as Joe Bonamassa, Bono, Johnny Cash, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Ani DiFranco, Jerry Garcia, Paul McCartney, Monte Montgomery, Carlos Santana, Bob Weir, Thom Yorke and so many more. And of course by the hundreds of thousands of amateur and professional musicians around the world.

Product Description

Alvarez Masterworks Series

Nothing can really match a guitar made from all-solid wood. The deflection of the notes is quicker, the quality of the note is better and the sound of your guitar will improve as it ages.

Masterworks are great guitars, seriously powerful and responsive and now built with FST2M bracing system, their sound is even more refined and articulate.

FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both X braces and asymmetric tone bars are considerately scalloped to displace the vibrational energy and help create a strong and fluid tone and response.

The sound is warm, open and clear, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.

Balance across the strings is important to the professional artist and Masterworks achieves this while offering the dynamic range and volume needed to help optimize the relationship between the player and the instrument.

The SYS650 designed by B-BAND is an awesome EQ and dual pick up system that allows you to blend between the under saddle and bridge plate pickups. B-BAND’s patented electret film technology creates very true, acoustic reproduction and the system also includes a backlit chromatic digital tuner.

Beautifully voiced, professional guitars made from all-solid, seasoned tone wood.
