Alvarez’s acoustic range is notoriously diverse, and features a raft of stunning guitars that emit the most glorious of tones. The Masterworks MFA66CESHB is one such model, an elegant OM-style instrument with a unique look and a luxurious sound.
Alvarez MFA66CESHB Key Features
- Solid African Mahogany body, including top
- One-piece Mahogany neck
- Pau Ferro fretboard
- Abalone/Mother of Pearl inlays
- 50/50 gloss/satin finish for comfort and durability
- LR Baggs Element pickup
- LR Baggs StagePro EQ
The Alvarez MFA66CESHB is constructed predominantly from Solid African Mahogany, with its entire body crafted from this exotic tonewood. Offering a supremely warm and rich mid-range, this material also accentuates the lows to ensure that the full dynamic range of the instrument is heard.
The MFA66CESHB also features Alvarez’s thoughtful FST2 bracing, which is essentially a forward-shifted X brace design. With the axis of the X closer to the sound hole, this design forms a larger soundboard area that can harness more vibrations from the strings. This allows the guitar to resonate more naturally, giving it additional volume and an airy top-end.
Fitted with an LR Baggs StagePro Element system, the Alvarez MFA66CESHB will offer an authentic tonality when plugged into a PA System or recording interface. Class-leaders in acoustic pickup technology, LR Baggs’ StagePro system will translate the acoustic voice of the MFA66CESHB very convincingly, capturing its full spectrum of frequencies.
Sporting a 3-band EQ section as well as a phase inversion switch, you can tailor the tone of this instrument to suit the acoustic qualities of any space. For example, if you’re playing in a particularly dark-sounding venue, just boost the treble and you’ll cut through effortlessly!
