OVERVIEW

All solid wood with special bracing for a guitar that's built to entertain for years.

Nothing can really match a guitar made from all-solid wood. The deflection of the notes is quicker, the quality of the note is better and the sound of your guitar will improve as it ages.

Masterworks are great guitars, seriously powerful and responsive and now built with Ibanez's special FSTM bracing system, their sound is even more refined and articulate. FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both X braces and asymmetric tone bars are considerately scalloped to displace the vibrational energy and help create a strong and fluid tone and response.

The sound is warm, open and clear, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other. Balance across the strings is important to the professional artist and Masterworks achieves this while offering the dynamic range and volume needed to help optimize the relationship between the player and the instrument. Beautifully voiced, professional guitars made from all-solid, seasoned tonewood.


Includes case.

    Comments about Alvarez Masterworks MD65 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    Had been practicing on an old entry level Epiphone. This guitar has a much better response on the neck. The finish is much nicer in person than pictured.

      Comments about Alvarez Masterworks MD65 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      Alvarez is the hidden value in guitars. The Masterworks series is superb and if you haven't played one, seek one out. Near perfect finish, the cedar has tight grain, the mahogany is beautiful, the action just right and, by the way...it does come with a hard-shell case...you can't always trust the description on the web site.. This is a awesome guitar at a throwaway price...only you won't want to throw it away! Significantly, for me it is the sound and the feel of the guitar and I have played a bunch, but the one that has the sound and feel that is mine, is Alvarez and this specific guitar is no exception.

        Comments about Alvarez Masterworks MD65 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        This is a great all-solid wood guitar from Alvarez at a price that is very affordable. I really like the 1 3/4 in nut width. The guitar is very light and has a gloss finish on the back, sides and top. the neck has more of a satin type finish to it. It also looks like the binding around the top of the body is wood as well. The cedar top gives it an already broke-in sound. An unexpected bonus was the very nice case that it came in (even though the description says case is available separately). Very highly recommended at current sale price.
