    The MDA70CE is made from a hand selected, AA solid Sitka spruce top, and solid, cured mahogany back and sides. Each component is made of natural material, including real bone saddles and nuts, Acacia Koa bindings, Paua Abalone purflings, ebony bridge pins and green abalone inlays.

    Masterworks guitars feature a one-piece mahogany neck with a 50/50 finish, premium tuners and 12th Fret abalone inlay.

    The Masterworks bracing system is forward shifted with scalloped, hand finished X braces that allow these guitars to project incredibly well. There's lots of sustain and dynamic response. Either strummed or picked, the separation and balance across the strings is unprecedented in this price range.

    The MDA70CE features Alvarez' SYS650 electronics, which uses patented electret film technology instead of Piezo materials. A piezo pickup tends to color the amplified tone, which can often sound thin and two-dimensional. You don't get that with the electret film technology, which works similar to a condenser microphone, allowing for a more accurate reproduction of the instrument's true acoustic voice.

    The SYS650 is a dual pickup system incorporating one under saddle pick up and a transducer pick up placed under the soundboard. Either pickup can be selected or you can blend between the two to find subtle changes in response for lead, picking or rhythm work. The system also has a fully chromatic, precision tuner with backlit LCD screen; 3-bands of rotary EQ, and a great notch control that helps identify and eliminate feedback.

    An Amazing Instument
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Decades ago, I owned an Alvarez acoustic 12 and it was the guitar, with which, I learned to play. I unboxed the MDA70CE, checked it thoroughly, tuned it, and began playing it. (unplugged) It has a deep rich bottom end, nice mids and sparkling highs. The neck is comfortable, quite fast. Then, I plugged into my Marshall Stack (JCM2000, 1960 4x12's) and that is where it really began to shine. The Preamp is fabulous, responsive, and easy to use. I love the "notch" control and being able to contour the two pickups. I have found, thus far, I like an equal blend of the two, as they each have a unique voice, that accurately reproduces the guitar's voice. As for looks, it is a stunning instrument, the pictures although good, do not do it justice. It is, equally, as good as my Martin, albeit, 2/3 less as expensive. Gigging or no, the MDA70CE will handle any situation. I love this guitar. It plays like butter.

    Beautiful sounding and playing instrument, and just plain beautiful!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Well I actually have the MFA 70 ce model, which is a smaller body than the Dreadnought, but with the sound I get from this guitar, very full, very balanced, great lows and highs, I imagine the dread will sound even better!
