Product Description

The Alvarez RD12 is a great sounding 6-string dreadnought that comes with a hard-shell wood case. It has a spruce top and mahogany back and sides, classic tone woods that generate a warm and well-balanced tone. Alvarez has made the neck profile on Regent Series a little finer so they're easier to play and every model is constructed using a dovetail neck joint that optimizes the transfer of energy between the neck and body.

All Regent Series instruments are fitted with the Alvarez bi-level bridge to carry more vibration to the top, which improves tone and resonance, and the PPS saddle and nut help to improve response and sustain.

This instrument has been finished using an electrostatic painting process for a more even finish that uses less paint in its application. This allows the guitar to sing a little more and it also looks fantastic.

Premium die cast tuners deliver tuning stability.

All in all the RD12 from Alvarez is a perfectly constructed, great sounding guitar that will be a joy to play straight out of the box. Comes with the Alvarez Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome guitar for a beginner and great sound!"
Overall: This guitar sounds great right out of the box. Even better with Elixir light to medium strings. For it's price range you are getting a great deal. The action is great and makes it easy to play. The tuners hold tune and the neck makes it even easier to play (another plus for beginners). I would definitely recommend this guitar for any beginner not looking to invest to much money into a guitar. It is also great that it comes with a hardshell case. Not the best of cases but it'll work and for the price you can't beat it. If you're a beginner not looking to spend much or just need a guitar you can take around town without worrying about doing some damage to that expensive guitar but want descent sound this guitar will work. As far as durability it seems to be holding up great and the case is doing it's job. Remember it's not a "wow" guitar and the workmanship is lacking just a little bit in the quality department but for the price it's good deal and you shouldn't be disappoint with the sound it produces. I would not recommend it for an intermediate to advance player who is looking to move up unless you're looking for a throw around guitar with good sound as I was. The sound is great, not top of the line guitar sound but great for practice.
Style of Music: I play lots of blues, some finger picking, a little jazz, metal, rock, indie, a little classical, folk, and country.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Guitar for the price"
Overall: I purchased the guitar as a birthday gift for my 14 year old daughter who recently has developed a desire to switch from electric to acoustic. Great quality and a great case with this model. I have played drums for close to 40 years and have been in bands for close to 30 years...I have seen and played many guitars over the years and this one holds up when compared to many more expensive models I have seen...if you want a great value priced acoustic guitar there is no need to look further, you will love this model...

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.
