Product Description

Beautifully voiced, professional guitars made from all-solid, seasoned tone woods. All solid wood really does make a difference, and Alvarez made sure each Masterworks gets the best out their solid wood construction. They are very open sounding, powerful instruments with rounded notes and plenty of bass.

The all-new MPA70 parlor is made from a hand selected, solid AA Sitka Spruce top, and solid, fully-cured East Indian Rosewood back and sides.

Alvarez MPW70 Masterworks Parlor Acoustic Electric Guitar Features:

  • Parlor Acoustic Solid AA Sitka Spruce Top
  • Solid East Indian Rosewood Back and Sides
  • Hand Finished, Scalloped Bracing System
  • One Piece Mahogany Neck + Heel, 50/50 Semi Gloss
  • Premium Die-Cast Gold Tuners w/Ebony Buttons
  • Rosewood Bi-Level Bridge
  • Rosewood Fingerboard
  • Paua Abalone Inlays
  • Acacia Koa Binding 1.5mm Paua Abalone Purfling
  • Ebony Bridge Pins
  • Real Bone Nut and Saddle
  • High Gloss Finish
  • D'Addario EXP's
  • Includes Case
Each component is made of natural material, including real bone saddles and nuts, Acacia Koa binding, Paua Abolone purflings, ebony bridge pins and green abalone inlays. Careful wood selection and meticulous craftsmanship is critical when building a top-shelf parlor, and it really shows in the MPA70. All the articulation you'd expect from a traditional 12-fret parlor, plus a surprising amount of snort through the low-mids. This guitar really speaks with its own unique voice.

Masterworks guitars feature a one-piece mahogany neck with a 50/50 finish, premium tuners with ebony buttons, 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.

Sounds great, plays great, but blemished top
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
Beautiful workmanship, intonates properly and plays effortlessly right out of the box. Spruce top has a knot in the wood. I like this guitar. I just wish Alvarez' vaunted QC meant not shipping this unit as defect free. It should have been sold as a blemished item. I don't want to go through the rigamarole of sending it back just to get another one that "slipped through." Four stars for what would otherwise be five all the way!

I was extremely stoked when this guitar arrived!
What is your opinion of this product?
American Musical Supply shipped this to my door in one day free of charge. It came well packaged and as always with a musical instrument, I was apprehensive when opening the case. The guitar was not only protected well inside and out but came set up perfectly intonation wise as well as the action. The sound is beautiful, the workmanship is as good as any including my Taylor. I highly recommend this guitar for fingerstyle blues and ragtime players as it is very loud and resonant for its size and sounds incredibly pure with the new lr baggs pickup I put in the sound hole! Alvarez makes a lot of lower end instruments as well but for the price, the quality of this guitar cannot be beat. I spent a month researching and playing various parlor sized guitars and between this one and a washburn made up my mind. The craftsmanship is wonderful. Do not fear the made in China part. it is handcrafted by luthiers that put their soul in this guitar!

Love this guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar has the same woods on the back and sides as my Martin D35. You will not find a better guitar at this price. I think Martin ripped me off.
