OVERVIEW

A redefined entry level guitar with full-scale neck, spruce top, and mahogany back and sides.

The Alvarez RF12CE Regent Series Folk/OOO Size Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar is a great-sounding 6-string and includes a hardshell wood case. It has a spruce top and mahogany back and sides, classic tonewoods that generate a warm and well-balanced tone. This model is fitted with the Alvarez S300T preamp with 3-band EQ and built-in tuner.

Alvarez have made the neck profile on Regent Series a little finer so they're easier to play and every model is constructed using a dovetail neck joint that optimizes the transfer of energy between the neck and body.

All Regent Series instruments are fitted with the Alvarez bi-level bridge to carry more vibration to the top, which improves tone and resonance, and the PPS saddle and nut help to improve response and sustain.

This instrument has been finished using an electrostatic painting process for a more even finish that uses less paint in its application. This allows the guitar to sing a little more and it also looks fantastic.

Premium die-cast tuners deliver tuning stability.

All in all, the RF12CE from Alvarez is a perfectly constructed, great-sounding electric acoustic guitar both on and off the stage.

        Deal of a lifetime

        Comments about Alvarez RF12CE Regent Series Folk/OOO Size Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

        A friend told me about this guitar and I bought
        it.When it arrived I was happily surprised to find that it came with a hard guitar case with a
        splendid covering.
        The guitar itself has a beautiful feel to it.
        A wonderful paint job on very excellent wood.
        I'm in love with it.
        I played it with a micro amp and earphones and it
        has a wonderful sound.Soon I'll buy an amp but I
        must practice because I haven't played in many years.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Alvarez RF12CE Regent Series Folk/OOO Size Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:

          It's a good-LOOKING instrument, but the action is WAY too high. It obviously didn't get ANY setup at all. There's also a slight concave bow in the neck/fingerboard. After playing around with it for an evening, my fingertips hurt like they haven't hurt in a very long time. I've thought about sending it back, but don't want to pay the shipping, so I guess I'll try messing with the truss rod and see if I can get the bow out of the neck. I'll also have to sand down the underside of the saddle to get the action down to a reasonable and playable level. I really don't like having to do this, but it's not comfortably playable the way it is. I wish I'd been one of the lucky ones like the other reviewers who have given it 5 stars. I've owned Alvarez guitars in the past and have always been satisfied with them. Guess I just got a lemon.

                        Guitar came with busted hinge on case. Not sure how it left warehouse. Opened broken case an guitar looks nothing like picture. Check out various alvarez shapes on google for their same folk models. I could fit a credit card between neck and body joint. Horible quality. Returned for Dean performer plus. Way better quality
