If you found this review then perhaps you are someone who can afford a Goodall or a Taylor or a "high end" acoustic, but you have tried this many times and have not been satisfied, and you spent a lot of money in the process. Is this you? If so, i can tell you that this guitar has a professional sound, excellent workmanship, and the neck is full and not slender or "low profile". Its an excellent value, a fine playing instrument, and the sound is worth 2x the price. You'll find the bone saddle is high and you'll need to lower it for best action and playability, however the neck is very stiff and you can go really low and have no buzzing issues and the tone stays loud, full, and dynamic. Nice case come with the guitar. The Mahog version, to my ear, sounds better balanced overall then the rosewood version. Its a tin bit dry, but it still retains very good dynamics and commendable resonance for an all mahog guitar. If you are really into finger style, then grab one of these, they're great.

Great Mahogany guitar- unequaled value
What is your opinion of this product?
I first ordered this model, the folk, which is sort of a 000 size. The tone on that was amazing. Really sweet midrange. It had a buzz that I couldn't easily fix, so I sent it back and this time got the MDA66 dread, for a little more bass. Almost identical, though the folk came is an elaborate Alvarez case, while the dread came in a generic hard case that's fine at this price point. Tone- now this is a hog top, so it doesn't behave like spruce, and u need to know that going in. I'd played a 15 series Martin, and love the hog snap and presence. This Alvarez has that ( maybe more) IMMEDIACY that you don't get with spruce. It also has fewer secondary harmonics, so you get strong primary tone with good sustain. The sound decays differently than spruce too, just kind of getting quieter without the overtones changing with the decay. And it growls. People say hog tops are good for dirty blues- and that's exactly right! It snaps and growls in a way that I really like. The tone Has great balan
