Alvarez RD26CE Acoustic Electric Guitar

$356.97

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 Regent Series

Too often, students of the guitar, no matter what age, have trouble getting motivated because entry level guitars are either difficult to play, don’t sound very good, or don’t have the draw that marquis guitars do;  they don’t have that addictive quality that makes you want to pick the guitar up every day and play for hours.

The Alvarez Regent Series is designed as an entry level guitar that will keep new players focused and excited about their instrument from day one.  They’re classic looking guitars that encompass many of the features and design elements that our high end instruments have, like this Bi level bridge, and a rosewood bridge and fingerboard.  The models are finished in a high gloss and come in either Sitka or Rosewood outfits.

Usually laminated guitars sound very thin and have difficulty projecting, but the Alvarez Regent series has had a lot of attention paid to good construction and components, and are very open and sweet sounding while maintaining a very affordable price.

Some great models to introduce yourself to are the RD26 Dreadnought, the RD27CE, which is a cutaway with a fantastic B-Band SYS250 EQ and tuner installed, and the RC26HCE, A hybrid classical nylon string guitar, but with a steel string style neck that’s a bit more comfortable for fretting and chord stretches.

That’s what the Regent Series means to Alvarez, an entire line-up that’s got the fresh student in mind, but built so they can evolve with the player well into their veteran years.
