Product Description:

Many years ago had the good fortune of seeing Monte Montgomery play live in his home town of Austin, TX. That night Monte became one of my favorite guitar players and Monte plays a 1987 Alvarez CY62-C​​​​​​​. That night also put Alvarez guitars on my radar. I would venture to bet that most guitar manufacturers would be happy to provide Monte with a guitar of his choice, and yet his 1987 Alvarez CY62-C is still his go to guitar.

Outstanding craftsmanship using all-solid wood along with professional LR Baggs VTC electronics make the MD60BG from Alvarez one of the best guitars you’ll see at this price! All solid wood really does make a difference, and Alvarez utilizes a solid AA Sitka Spruce top and solid African Mahogany back and sides to great effect in this powerfully-voiced dreadnought. 

With that clear purpose, Alvarez set out to build a best-in-class, all-solid Dreadnought designed for the flatpicker and powerful strummer in mind. The MD60EBG delivers on all fronts. 

These superbly dressed guitars are super responsive with clear, powerful bass and sparkling trebles. Its  pay tribute to traditional Bluegrass guitars with open gear nickel tuners, classic inlays, a high-quality tortoiseshell style pickguard and even a slightly extended fingerboard. 

The all-new MD60EBG is made from a hand selected, solid AA Sitka spruce top, and solid, fully-cured Solid African Mahogany back and sides. Each component is made of premium materials, including real bone saddles and nuts, Paua Abalone and Mother of Pearl inlays, and ebony bridge pins. The Masterworks MD60EBG features a one-piece mahogany neck with a 50/50 finish, premium nickel open-gear vintage tuners, 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 power and separation and balance across the strings is unprecedented in this price range.

 

Condition:   No repairs were needed or made to this guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone.  The guitar looks mint and plays great. The action could easily be adjusted to fit the preference of any player. Neck is straight and the guitar looks great and has a bright and rich tone, a true bluegrass instrument.
