Alvarez MDA66SHB Masterworks Dreadnought

The Alvarez MDA66SHB is made from a hand selected, solid African mahogany top, and solid, fully-cured African mahogany back and sides. Each component is made of natural material, including real bone saddles and nuts, acacia koa binding, Paua abalone purflings, ebony bridge pins and green abalone inlays. 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.

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

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
