        Comments about Alvarez MFA66CE Masterworks OM/Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        When this arrived, the pickup was not connected properly to the output jack. It was an easy fix, but one a customer should not have to make on a instrument right out of the box. If I hadn't been waiting on it for over a month, it would have gone right back in the box and on the next truck back.

        It's a beautiful guitar and sounds great for what I'm doing with it (loop station jamming in my house).

        Comments about Alvarez MFA66CE Masterworks OM/Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I bought the AG660ESHB which is the Grand Auditorium model and was struck with the beautiful appearance and rich, warm tones of this guitar. BUT, the neck was not set correctly and there was a hump in the fretboard at the 14th fret. No amount of truss rod adjustments were able to cure this so I ended up shimming under the saddle with a credit card strip. Now the action is just too high!
        So MF blew all of those out not leaving any in reserve in case there were issues, so i took a shot at this model as an exchange. It is not as warm, not as loud and sounds "tinny" and cheap. I'm guessing due to the smaller size and cut-away. It's still a beautiful guitar, but what you can't see from the pictures is the gaudy inlay around the edges. Too much bling! They should have just done a bit wider inlay around the sound hole and called it good. I normally like Alavrez, but I'm not happy w/ the defect in the artist series guitar and not happy with the tone from this one. I cannot recommend it.

          Comments about Alvarez MFA66CE Masterworks OM/Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          I had high hopes for this, as I love Alvarez guitars, but for me this definitely wasn't the upgrade from my AF610ESHB that I was hoping for. I like mahogany on some guitars, but this guitar was really muted and quiet compared to my AF610... I changed the strings on both to make sure the comparison was fair, and ended up really liking my cheaper AF better. My friends agreed.

          The fretboard on the MFA66 is pretty nice, thin so it plays fast on up the fretboard... that's a nice setup to have combined with the cutaway so you can get way up there. But the guitar was just too quiet.

          Also, the dark wood finish, with the subtle-ish sunburst, looks really nice, but man that blue-green-ish pearl inlay on the edges, soundhole and the headstock logo... it's really ugly and overly glitzy in person. That was a big disappointment.
