    Product Description

    Alvarez's Masterworks guitars are defined by their all-solid tonewood construction, unwavering attention to detail and designs inspired by the most popular acoustics of all-time. If you’re looking for uncompromising quality without breaking the bank, look no further. The combination of innovative design, solid tonewoods and affordable price tags makes Alvarez guitars some of the best value all solid guitars on the market today.

    The Alvarez Masterworks MDR70ESB is a classic 12-fret dreadnought acoustic, inspired by traditional pre-war instruments. The neck joins the body at the 12th fret (as opposed to the 14th), bringing with it enhanced comfort and playability. Featuring an all solid AAA grade Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, the MDR70ESB has a clear and robust sound with excellent projection and overall breadth. Under the hood, the FS6 forward shifted X bracing system yields exceptional clarity and separation for a bold, balanced tone across all six strings. Other features include open gear nickel tuners, thin poly finish, slotted headstock and pre-war sunburst. The MDR70ESB is fitted with a market-leading LR Baggs VTC Element pickup with soundhole console for convenient amplification and recording.

    Key Features

    • All Solid Construction - Solid wood guitars generally sound richer and fuller than their laminate counterparts. The guitar's tone will actually improve over time as the timbers mature.
    • Dreadnought Body Shape - The quintessential acoustic guitar shape! Big, bold and loud, the dreadnought is perfect for strummers and fingerpickers alike.
    • FS6 Bracing System - This forward shifted X bracing system creates a larger soundboard area allowing for more energy and vibration to be harnessed.
    • Open Gear Nickel Tuners - These classic, understated tuning machines maintain accurate tuning stability.
    • AF30 FlexiCase - A lightweight padded gigbag that will keep your precious guitar safe from bumps, dings and weather!
    • LR Baggs VTC Element System - A natural sounding pickup that won't colour your tone, allowing the guitar's natural characteristic to shine through.
