The Alvarez MFA66CESHB Small Body Acoustic Electric Guitar is an exquisite instrument from the Alvarez Masterworks series. These guitars are known for their exceptional construction, stunning finishes, and all-solid wood construction, providing a professional-level playing experience at an affordable price.

The MFA66CESHB features a beautifully finished solid African Mahogany body with a vintage sunburst, highlighting the natural grain of the wood and creating a warm and visually appealing look that complements its tone. The all-solid African Mahogany construction contributes to a rich and warm sound with excellent resonance and projection.

Equipped with the LR Baggs Stage-Pro Element pickup system, this guitar offers convenient side-mounted preamp/EQ controls with battery access. The system includes a full chromatic tuner that is discreetly hidden beneath the control panel, maintaining a clean and elegant appearance. The three-band EQ, phase inversion, and Garrett Null notch filter controls allow for precise tonal shaping and ensure warm and pristine sound reproduction even in challenging performance environments.

The MFA66CESHB features a small body size in the Folk/OM shape with a cutaway, offering comfortable playability and easy access to the higher frets. The neck is made from one piece of mahogany with a 50/50 semi-gloss finish, providing a smooth and comfortable playing experience.

The bridge is crafted with bi-level rosewood, providing optimal string vibration transfer and enhancing the guitar's overall resonance. The fingerboard is made of rosewood with pau ferro and showcases stunning Paua Abalone and Mother of Pearl inlays. The 12th fret inlay adds a touch of elegance to the instrument's visual appeal.

The nut and saddle are made of real bone, contributing to enhanced sustain, resonance, and tonal clarity. The premium die-cast gold tuners with ebony buttons ensure precise and stable tuning.

Visually, the MFA66CESHB is adorned with acacia binding along the body edges, adding a touch of sophistication to its overall aesthetic. The bridge pins are made of ebony, further enhancing the guitar's visual appeal.

The Alvarez MFA66CESHB Small Body Acoustic Electric Guitar is a remarkable instrument that combines stunning craftsmanship, all-solid wood construction, and reliable electronics. Whether played acoustically or amplified, this guitar delivers a rich, warm tone with excellent projection and a wide dynamic range. It comes with a gig bag for added protection during transport.

    Alvarez MFA66CESHB Small Body Acoustic Electric Guitar

    Amazing instrument well in the league of guitars double the price and higher. The AC video replicates the true 'in the room' sound and it's a delight to play. Perfect gloss finish with beautiful binding and other detailing. Arrived the next day so very happy customer. Thanks to the Acoustic Centre AAAA++++

    Wonderful guitar and fantastic value!

    Let me say I own a few higher end and more expensive guitars than this, but this thing sounds wonderful, plays really well and is fast becoming my favorite. It's the first all mahogany guitar I've owned and I wish I had checked them out sooner. It sounds warm and more compressed and less boomy than the standard Sitka dreadnoughts that are so common and of which I own a few. Smaller body size is very comfortable and pairs well with the choice of tone wood. Build quality is as good as should be expected in this prices range - comparable to my 1994 Maton, which was probably not a high point as far as Maton finishes go. That is, there are some extremely minor flaws to the finish, which can't really seen but can be felt if running one's hands over some of the surfaces. Fretwork is good. Neck is very comfortable, with a satin finish. If I had to be picky I would say that I'm not a fan of the highly glossy finish nor the abalone inlay on the binding. But this is a matter of taste.
