Alvarez

Description

The Alvarez MGA70WCEAR Masterworks is a stunning Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar that’s suitable for a variety of playing styles. It’s presented with a slim bevel ebony armrest with genuine paua abalone purfling. The Alvarez Masterworks Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric is amplified via the L.R.Baggs VTC Element pickup system and soundhole console.

After 55 years of making guitars, continual improvement through the use of emerging technologies, processes, and materials is still at the heart of Alvarez’s culture. Alvarez guitars are constructed correctly in every sense, from raw material preparation to construction and manufacturing processes. The tonewoods are carefully cured; components such as neck blocks and wood joints are carefully designed. The painting, sanding and polishing techniques used are continually researched and developed, and each guitar's tone is impeccably crafted and married to a stable, consistent and lively soundbox.

Each guitar is designed to get the best out of its components, and for them to work together. These components include the MST1 bracing system, bi-level rosewood bridge, real bone nut and saddle, carefully seasoned tonewood and a thin finish. Tonally MST1 is robust with greater bass presence and is capable of producing more volume when needed.

This caring approach to development comes from one simple goal: To deliver the best guitars in the market at every price point, instruments that are truly amazing value and offer a fantastic player experience.
