The entry-level guitar. Redefined.

The Alvarez Regent Series is a high-quality, entry-level guitar line designed to provide superior instruments with many features and specifications you'll find in pro-level Alvarez models. Components such as the bi-level rosewood bridge, scalloped bracing and PPS synthetic bone nut and saddle, work together to get the best tone and response possible.

The sound is open and full, and the guitars have been made to respond well, making them rewarding to play.

Regent Series has also been designed with the student in mind and has a slightly slimmer neck profile and nut, making it very easy to hold and fret.

This guitar has a roadworthy, vintage vibe with a satin finish. This is a great looking guitar and for its size has a very open and warm voice. It is fitted with the Alvarez SYS250 from B-Band, a 3-band EQ with onboard digital backlit tuner.

Mahogany Back and Sides / Satin

      Comments about Alvarez RP266EBK Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Fun guitar so far after a few hours playing. First impressions, beautiful fit and finish and set up out of the box. I believe Alvarez sets up each instrument at its St. Louis factory though these entry instruments are made in China... not a bad thing given the impressive build quality of the guitar I received. In terms of tone and playability I'm pretty pleased, very full sounding mahogany body, a very slightly limited bass articulation (to my ear but very acceptable and especially for a laminate instrument) with exceptional mid and treble tone pronunciation. Having always had spruce top guitars, save a prewar solid mahogany Gibson L-00, my initial impression of this guitar was pleasant surprise, a bit jazzy sounding to my ear, smooth neck and very good action with no adjustment. Have always loved Diadario(sp?) Ej16 light strings but the EXP's are great very easy and fun playing. Full disclosure my skill level is perpetual begginer but very picky about tone and overall sound quality. Anyway, dig the guitar so far mining song tabs and fiddling with scales. On board tuner is right on, haven't tested electronics so far with anything beyond a mini Hodad toy amp which isn't best pairing so cannot comment much on the pickup and eq until I invest in a real amp.

        Comments about Alvarez RP266EBK Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        A great guitar. It's the first one I've bought brand new and I was not disappointed. It feels great in my hands, it sounds great, and it looks great. The action's perfect and it rings so clear. I haven't been able to plug it in yet, but the built in tuner works fantastically, and looks so, too. My only real downside is that mine came with a black pick gaurd as opposed to the white one shown, which was sort of a let down, but as soon as I played it, it mattered a lot less.
