Alvarez Guitars is pleased to announce a new addition to its all-solid wood Masterworks Series, the MDR70SB, featuring a vintage aesthetic in stunning sunburst, open gear tuners, and slotted headstock.
“A 12th fret Dreadnought really works for many players”, says Chris Meikle, Head of Development at Alvarez and Senior Vice President of St. Louis Music. “Some say it’s because of the position of the bridge being right in the middle of the soundboard, or the closer position of your fretting hand or just the overall feel and string tension. Whatever it is, it certainly works.”
The MDR70SB has a round and full tone with lots of clear bass frequencies and glistening trebles. Its response is instant, and its notes are clear and robust. When strumming, the FS6 bracing system and AAA Sitka top help deliver clarity and separation, and balance is clearly audible across all six strings.
The MDR is a beautifully finished instrument with a deep shine, thin poly finish and traditional appointments come in the way of a slotted headstock, open gear tuners and pre-war style sunburst.
The projection and overall breadth of tonal reach in these guitars are outstanding, making it hard to put down for those players looking for a powerful open voicing and feel of a 12th Fret Dreadnought.
