The Alvarez MP70E parlor acoustic-electric guitar provides fingerstyle players and singer-songwriters a comfortable, resonant instrument for crafting melodies onstage and in the studio. Its parlor-sized body is highly playable yet compact enough for travel, with a solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides selected for their balanced, articulate tone. Onboard LR Baggs HiFi electronics give you the option to plug in for live performance, complete with easy-to-use controls for dialing in your sound.

Parlor Body Size Makes Playing a Joy

The diminutive parlor body of the MP70E nestles comfortably against your torso, ideal for hours of unencumbered practice or performance. Its compact size also makes it a perfect choice for travel, as it's easy to transport from gig to gig. Despite its small stature, the MP70E projects with surprising volume and resonance thanks to its solid wood construction. The spruce top in particular provides a crisp, detailed response, while the rosewood back and sides add warmth and depth.

LR Baggs HiFi System for Plugged-in Versatility

The MP70E comes equipped with an LR Baggs HiFi pickup system, giving you the option to plug in for live playing. The HiFi system features a non-invasive pickup design that pairs dual bridge plate sensors with high-fidelity electronics, providing exceptional balance, definition, dynamics, and good feedback resistance. With a simplified peel-and-stick installation, the lightweight pickups preserve the integrity of your instrument’s bridge plate without negatively altering your acoustic tone. HiFi’s built-in, studio-quality preamp is also voiced to complement the pickups for an optimal plug-and-play experience.
