Plug in a dreadnought cutaway that looks as good as it sounds.
The Alvarez AD411C Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a cutaway version of the Artist Series dreadnought. The AD411C has a natural finish and System 600T MKII electronics for external amplification. The sleek trim of the white pearl rosette and ivoroid binding offers an impressive contrast to the deep red colors of the rosewood and the naturally stained solid spruce top. The bound rosewood fretboard and headstock overlay completes the guitar's outline with a simple but striking white trim.
The dreadnought top's natural stain, diamond-pattern inlay on the 12th fret, and mustached bridge make this a beautiful introductory guitar, or a welcome addition to your acoustic collection. The cutaway provides extra range and dexterity for hitting those high-register notes.
The impressive System 600T MK II electronics feature a notch filter, 3-band EQ, and auxiliary in to jump into amplified mode in a pinch. The Alvarez Artist Series brings together an impressive array of guitars, offering a variety of colors and a wide range of styles.

This is an excellent guitar! Great for all types of music. With a solid spruce top, it sounds great unplugged or plugged in. This is a gorgeous guitar with low action, great electronics, and the neck is smooth which is a great for slides. It has a nice bright tone and great harmonics. I highly recommend this guitar.
When my Alvarez AD411c arrived I was absolutely stunned! The rosewood (back and sides) is simply beautiful. The two halves of spruce used on the face of the guitar are also evenly ribbed and a "dead on" perfect match.The workmanship that has gone into this guitar is impeccable. I have not been able to find a single flaw anywhere on the guitar. While I did expect to receive a quality instrument, I didn't think it would be to this level. Whoever put my guitar together is indeed a craftsman.The only changes I have made to the guitar are one, I replaced the standard bronze strings with 80/20 phosphor bronze and two, I lowered the action just a tad. The 80/20 strings have beefed up the guitar's acoustic sound and lowering the action has made it very easy to play.You will find that the rosewood fretboard feels great to the touch and is silky smooth, almost as smooth as an ebony fretboard.Overall the sound of the AD411c is quite good. One "very minor" complaint is a slight drop in the mid-range strings D/G, however; most guitarists will not even notice it.The on-board pickup and electronics are quite good and are actually better than I expected them to be. They are almost dead quiet, unless you drive their levels to the high end of the scale. One word of caution, be sure and remove the 9 volt battery when you are not using the pickup system. If you don't, it will be dead in less than a month. I use a lithium 9 volt battery in mine, as they last 3 to 4 times longer than an alkaline, which is something you'll come to appreciate should you ever forget to remove the battery a week or two before an important gig.
I have another Alvarez guitar than this, but I would like to make a comment on the 600 MK II - it uses your 9V battery real quick. It supposed to last for only 6 hours, but it starts to distort after 4 hours(!). To change the battery you have to remove the whole system, as the battery is located on the backside. If you leave the battery in, the power will still leak, and suddenly a perfectly fresh battery is emptied for no reason.
