What we say:

Alvarez acoustic guitars began life in St Louis, Missouri in 1965 by master luthier Kazuo Yairi. A well known guitar brand in the States, many top players like David Crosby, Thom Yorke, Devin Townsend and Any DiFranco have proudly toted Alvarez guitars live and in the studio.

Nowadays most Alvarez guitars are made to exacting standards in China and distributed all over the world, bringing traditional building techniques, understated good looks and high quality control into the hands of players of all descriptions.

From the revered Alvarez Masterworks stable comes this refined and beautiful Dreadnought.

The top, back and sides of this MDA66 are all made from solid African Mahogany. This helps impart a most impressive and complex tone, full of rich midrange and strong presence.

Acacia & Paua Abalone binding and inlay work offer subtle yet upmarket looks to accompany the gorgeous Shadowburst gloss finish. The Mahogany neck has a semi-gloss finish to make for supremely comfortable playing.

This wonderful dreadnought is an excellent choice for guitarists across the board.

Specification

Masterworks are great guitars, seriously powerful and responsive and now built with our 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.

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