What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
African mahogany back and sides Warm tone; open midrange
Genuine bone nut and saddle Enhanced sonic character
Hand-scalloped bracing Carved for maximum response; lightweight
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel

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.
