A redefined entry level guitar with full-scale neck, spruce top, and rosewood back & sides.
The Alvarez RF17CE Regent Series Folk/OOO Size Acoustic-Electric Cutaway is a serious guitar and constructed using many of the same components and techniques used in building their higher end instruments. It sounds and plays superbly well and is a classic looking folk guitar.
The RF17CE has a spruce top and rosewood back and sides, classic tone woods that generate a warm and well-balanced tone with great highs and lows. 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.
This acoustic-electric guitar has a 3-band E.Q. with built in tuner and is equally at home both on and off stage.
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.
Comes with the Alvarez Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Comments about Alvarez RF17CE Regent Series Folk/OOO Size Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar:
I bought this at a discount level 2 price as it was returned to M.F.. The pics. were very helpful in deciding if it was worth the asking price. The damage was very minimal, and not worth repair, but not new condition. I am very pleased with the deep tone of this smaller size body. Plugged in, it sounds bigger than my drednaught. The body style lends itself well to a womens needs . My wife has laid claim to this one, but lets me play it. The tuner is very user friendly as well. The tone woods are a perfect match. This is the only guitar I have seen in this price point with such wood. This is no toy. It is a fine instrument. I am saving up for another Alvarez guitar in the hybrid classical line. Thanks again Musicians Friend for your fast and friendly service.
