Alvarez Masterworks MDA70CE acoustic-electric guitar – New Gear Day!

Alvarez Masterworks MDA70CE acoustic-electric guitar – New Gear Day!

These guitars are beautiful, and relatively inexpensive considering they are made out of all solid wood, bone nut and bridge, ebony pins and tuning key buttons plus Paua Abalone and Mother of Pearl.

I bought it new from Pacific Guitar Sales on reverb.com and got it for the offer I made of $800. They were asking $899.

So far, I’m loving it! The top is a bit more stiff than the Guild Jumbo (in the pix) and naturally it’s less boomy/bassy. So they each have quite different voices.
