Alvarez still delivers value

What is your opinion of this product?
I will not open by saying "for the price". It is a great all-around acoustic/electric guitar. I rarely use it as more than an acoustic. I will put two pics on it when I record and I have got great results. It is solid, but has enough bite to cut through a mix. It is a pleasure to play. I have been playing for 45 years. I don't use an acoustic enough to invest in a Martin or Taylor, so this fits my needs perfectly. In my opinion, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this if I were looking for a great acoustic to use as a "player".

Absolutely Gorgeous!!
What is your opinion of this product?
This MDA66CE Masterworks is my 2nd Alvarez. There was no way I could resist purchasing a complete solid Mahogany Guitar that has a Bone Nut, and Saddle, with premium electronics for about $500..Truly a phenomenal bargain! The fit and finish is flawless. AMS shipping time was spot on. Ordered late Thursday (Thanksgiving) and received it at 1:00PM EST Saturday. Not a scratch ding or even dust on the either the guitar or case (hardshell.) The tone is Rich, Warm, yet Bright highs. Out of the box it was a 1/2 step flat from standard 440 tuning. I mean every string was exactly 1/2 step flat. Stunning! I tuned to 440, and was completely amazed with the sound. The sustain is crazy nuts. As would be expected, it still needs minor set up, as intonation is a tad off, and needs very minor neck adjustment. Other than that, it plays beautifully. Action is low, and I played 3 hours straight with very little pain by the end of the session. I have well known guitars that I have paid two to three times the price of this guitar, and to me, this guitars has bridged the differences between those two. I can honestly state that this guitar is far superior on all levels based on a dollar for dollar basis. Again she is absolutely Gorgeius!! I can't get over how flawless the finish is. Not even a minuscule gap the the seams of the Abalone perflings, and banding. If there was to any criticism; I might suggest alternative placement of the neck strap support so that is posistioned at an angle off the side of the neck; rather than on the heel. But that is a personal preference more than a complaint. Seriously, Anyone that buys this guitar from AMS should be just as pleasantly surprised as I am. BTW, I never write reviews, but I had to get the word out on this amazing purchase, and while I'm at it, I have had zero issues in any way with any purchase I have made with AMS! Kepp up the good work, and you will have this customer for Life! I can't thank you enough. Walt

Nice Guitr
What is your opinion of this product?
The guitar sounds great. LR Baggs makes great pickups. I had to set up the guitar and do some work to it but that is to be expected. File down the bridge. File the nut grooves some. Adjust truss rod. Case is nice also.

I love this thing
What is your opinion of this product?
When I was growing up learning how to play guitar, my uncle had an Alvarez and no matter what guitar was laying around I always picked that one up to play. So when I decided to to finally get one myself, I researched and researched until I came across this one, read the reviews and decided to take the plunge. Best decision I ever made. This thing is so easy to play and the sound is absolutely amazing! If you’re looking for quality without breaking the bank, I highly recommend this one, you will not be disappointed!

Beautiful guitar, plays decent
What is your opinion of this product?
Only had one spot where it would fret out (15th fret, high E). Had to file that down a bit but otherwise no issues. Plays well, sounds great. Comes with a nice case.

Worth Every Penny!
What is your opinion of this product?
About a year ago my other acoustic, which I've had since 1993 started to show signs of road wear and I was having issues left and right. So I went to every local guitar shop and center in Northeast Ohio. I've played every brand of guitar offered and took notes on what I liked the most about them, and what I least liked as well. Then one day in this mom and pop's guitar store I found this guitar sitting on a shelf. (They wanted $1000 for the guitar and case.) So I played it for about and hour and I couldn't make the guitar sound bad in any way. So I wrote the model # down and began my search to find this guitar just a bit cheaper. So I finally found it on AMS for $700 w/case! Let me tell you, I couldn't be happier. This guitar came out of the box perfect. Not only is it the best looking guitar I've ever seen it's the best sounding. The low end on this guitar resonates so well, with or without amplification. I'm so happy I pulled the trigger on this guitar.

Great Guitar for price
What is your opinion of this product?
The overall craftsmanship is AWESOME The set-up out of the box is very good I have a high end comparable Martin, and this Alvarez will hold its own with the Martin and costs a fraction of the price. Plugged-in the Alvarez sounds SUPER. I play thru many different amps, and the Alvarez has a very natural acoustic voice with each. I have owned Alvarez guitars in the past and never been disappointed.
