Alvarez Masterworks Series MP70 Parlor Acoustic Guitar
Both fingerstyle players and flat-pickers will fall in love with the Alvarez MP70 Parlor Masterworks Acoustic Guitar! The parlor-size body is crafted with a hand selected, AA-grade solid Sitka Spruce top and solid Rosewood back and sides for fantastic dynamics, resonance, articulate highs and piano-like lows for a great playing experience. Alvarez also gives the MP70 Parlor a real bone saddle and nut, maple and rosewood bindings and ebony bridge pins. Alvarez Masterworks guitars feature a one-piece mahogany neck with a 50/50 finish, Grover tuners and 12th Fret abalone inlay. The Masterworks bracing system in the MP70 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.
