Product Description

With all-solid wood construction, a Bluegrass Dreadnought body shape and real bone saddle and nut, the MD60BG Masterworks yields an incredibly powerful voice for strumming and soloing! Alvarez builds these guitars with solid AA Sitka Spruce top and solid African Mahogany back and sides which is ideal for players who prefer that classic midrange punch. Outstanding build quality and a comfortable neck make the MD60BG a joy to pick up and play!

With clear purpose we set out to build a best-in-class, all-solid Dreadnought designed for the flatpicker and powerful strummer in mind. The MD60BG delivers on all fronts.

These superbly dressed guitars are super responsive with clear, powerful bass and sparkling trebles. Its cosmetics pay tribute to traditional Bluegrass guitars with open gear nickel tuners, classic inlays, a high-quality tortoiseshell style pickguard and even a slightly extended fingerboard.

The all-new MD60BG is made from a hand selected, solid AA Sitka spruce top, and solid, fully-cured Solid African Mahogany back and sides. Each component is made of premium materials, including real bone saddles and nuts, Paua Abalone and Mother of Pearl inlays, and ebony bridge pins. The Masterworks MD60BG features a one-piece mahogany neck with a 50/50 finish, premium nickel open-gear vintage 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 power and separation and balance across the strings is unprecedented in this price range.

Product Review

This is an amazing guitar. I just unwrapped this beauty and thought, “okay, just another quality instrument from Alvarez,” The fit, finish, action, wood grain and quality is readily apparent, and pleasing, from the moment you hold this instrument. After tuning and playing for a few minutes I was pleased, but not overwhelmed. Cleaned her up, set her down and let her rest for a bit then picked her up again and retuned. This time it was easier to recognize her “voice.” It is a typical Alvarez sound. Great bass but not as “tight” as some, midrange and treble is even and clear. Well voiced from top to bottom. Intonation is spot on. Picking up the guitar a third time really made me fall in love with the instrument. She sings! She doesn’t have to be played hard, the neck doesn’t have to be muscled, the sound is even and sweet. There is a pleasant “snap” ( hard to explain ) to a fast song, a great bottom end when you need to make a statement and rest is a sweet, sweet song. I can’t wait till I play again, can’t wait to play next week, next year, etc. Just can’t wait to hear how well this beauty ages and seasons. AMS made the purchase so easy I couldn’t pass it up and am glad I didn’t.

A fine guitar and a great value!

Product Review

Great. My Alvarez MD60BG is well-constructed of beautiful materials and solid woods; ready to play out-of-the box. The gorgeous gloss finish is perfectly (and thinly) applied, the fretwork is immaculate, the tuners work very well and have the Bluegrass vibe. The herringbone body binding and ivory neck binding is sweet. This guitar is loud with sweet tones and sounds better every time I pick it up. The gig bag is well made and I imagine helps keep the price of this Masterworks series down where it is.
