An acoustic guitar instrumental song I titled “Mystery” by Erwin van Ligten after asking him for the name telling him I wanted to cover it….and he said it was just a “jam” he’d played..so “Mystery” it is!
The song is played on my Alvarez Masterworks MDA70CE acoustic-electric guitar. Love it!
The Zoom Q3HD camera is focused on the joint of neck and body for best sound from x/y stereo mics.

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.

This is a demo of the electro-harmonix Mel 9 (Mellotron style guitar pedal) tape replay machine guitar pedal. I played some finger-picked acoustic through several of the settings including: clarinet, flute, strings, cello and a bonus electric guitar bastardization I call: “Phantom of the Stairway”. Haha.
