Product Description

The Alvarez MGA70E is made from a hand selected, solid AA Sitka Spruce top, and solid, fully-cured East Indian Rosewood 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.

The Grand Auditorium body style is considered by many to be the best balance of a powerful bottom-end and an articulate, well-defined midrange and top end. No cutaway means more resonant airspace inside the guitar for bigger tones out of a smaller body. The onboard SYS650 preamp accurate captures the raw power and detailed tonal textures of this incredibly expressive instrument.

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.

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.
