Outstanding craftsmanship using all-solid wood along with professional LR Baggs VTC electronics make the MD60BG from Alvarez one of the best guitars you’ll see at this price! All solid wood really does make a difference, and Alvarez utilizes a solid AA Sitka Spruce top and solid African Mahogany back and sides to great effect in this powerfully-voiced dreadnought.
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 MD60EBG 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 MD60EBG 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 MD60EBG 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.
