This acoustic-electric is swarming with high-end appointments, including a bone nut and saddle pins and Alvarez's 20:1 tuning machines.

The Alvarez Masterworks Series MDR70e is the perfect instrument for value-conscious players searching for an all-solid-wood dreadnought with a classic acoustic voice.


All-solid-wood construction

The MDR70e's solid AAA Sitka spruce top not only looks incredible, but it infuses this acoustic-electric guitar with a direct, punchy tone with headroom to spare. The MDR70e's back and sides are made from solid East Indian rosewood — a classic tonewood match for the instrument's spruce top — lending a sparkling, responsive quality to every note you play. This acoustic-electric guitar boasts a powerful dreadnought shape for even more advanced sustain potential. Underneath the MDR70e, forward-shifted bracing lends serious volume to every note you play.


Top-notch tones from LR Baggs

The included LR Baggs HiFi high-fidelity bridge plate pickup system will capture every nuance of your instrument's voice without modifying its natural acoustic character. Two lightweight bridge plate sensors produce a mirror image of your guitar's unplugged tone, with incredible balance, clear articulation, and a highly dynamic feel. Moreover, the built-in studio preamp system was fine-tuned from the ground up to pair perfectly with the bridge sensors, resulting in a pickup system that offers the utmost sonic authenticity. 


Fashioned for success

Across the board, the MDR70e carries traits exemplary of top-shelf instruments. All-natural string response and phenomenal intonation are delivered by way of real bone nut and saddle pins, a bi-level rosewood bridge, and a set of ultra-precise Alvarez 20:1 tuners. A stunning 12th-fret paua abalone and mother-of-pearl inlay matches the Alvarez logo found at the East Indian rosewood headstock. Meanwhile a dual-ring abalone/ABS rosette encompasses the soundhole with true elegance.
