The Alvarez RT16 Travel Acoustic Guitar with Gig Bag is a perfectly fashioned travel sized dreadnought. Don't be fooled by its size, although its compact the RT16 travel guitar plays just like a full size acoustic. It is constructed using many of the same components and techniques that are used in creating Alvarez’s higher end instruments.
The RT16 travel guitar plays and sounds great and is ideal for anyone sitting around the campfire, going on a journey, just to play around the house or a smaller sized player. This acoustic guitar is made with classic tone woods: a spruce top and mahogany back and sides that generate a warm, well-balanced tone. Alvarez fashioned the neck profile on the Regent Series a bit finer so they're easier to play. Every model is assembled using a dovetail neck joint that optimizes the energy transfer between the neck and body. It is fitted with the Alvarez bi-level bridge to carry more vibration to the top. This improves tone and resonance. The PPS saddle and nut on the RT16 help improve its response and sustain.
The RT16 travel guitar has been finished using an electrostatic painting process for a more even finish that uses less paint in its application. Less paint allows the guitar to sing just a little more. The RT16 also comes with an Alvarez padded gig bag to keep your investment safe during your travels.
