In 2018, Alvarez launched the MD60BG – It was their take on a Bluegrass styled Dreadnought with modern dynamics for Flatpickers and players looking for that optimal full tone. The MD60BG has become one of Alvarez’s best-selling guitars – This Rosewood version takes power and clarity to a new level. The MD70BG’s response is instant, and its notes are clear and robust. The rosewood helps deliver sonorous bass frequencies which are complemented by shimmering trebles. When strumming, the FS6 bracing system and AAA Sitka top help deliver clarity and separation, and balance is clearly audible across all six strings.
These beautifully dressed guitars pay tribute to traditional Bluegrass instruments with open gear nickel tuners, classic inlays, premium tortoiseshell style pickguard and a flawless gloss finish. The projection and overall breadth of tonal reach of this guitar is outstanding, making it hard to put down for those players looking for a powerful open voicing and instant response. The MD70EBG is fitted with the fantastic LR Baggs Element-VTC pick up with soundhole console.
