OVERVIEW

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.

Just unboxed this guitar yesterday. I've been playing for many years, and have owned many guitars in all price ranges over the years. I originally ordered this guitar on a lark, mainly because I thought it looked cool and, I guess, retro, and, for the price I just ordered it. But, I have to say, I've been really enjoying playing it the past couple days! It plays in tune all the way up the neck ( and seems to stay in tune, even w/ string bending.) It produces a nice, warm tone... though, not a ton of volume, unplugged. The onboard chromatic tuner is a nice feature, and seems to be accurate, as well.
In short, this guitar really far exceeded my expectations... Good job Alverez!

Looks great, perfect fit and paint. The onboard tuner and electronics are a major plus. For the price, it's a great deal, but if you're looking for great sound at $lower price range, you would be better off
With a cheap fender or Yamaha (but no electronics).
You could use it as a backup guitar for gigs... It on the small side, so good for kids and girls who don't want a huge guitar on stage.

Comments about Alvarez RP270ESB Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar fo the money. I bought it as a SDOTD and for that I cannot complain. I purchased the guitar for fly gigs that I didn't want to bring my Martin to. All in all the guitar is made well, plays well, and the finish looks great. The description is not correct. The guitar has a spruce top and rosewood back and sides not mahogany. I wanted mahogany but still a great guitar for the money.

    What a great little guitar. Really big sound and great fell. I had it about 2 hours before my youngest son confiscated it :) I don't blame him though!! Seriously, for the money you can't beat the Alvarez Regent guitars, and this one with spruce rosewood just resonates so nice!!

      Comments about Alvarez RP270ESB Parlor Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Very good ax for the S-D-D price! as stated by another. Spruce top, Rosewood back/sides! a classic combination! I was a 'Full Service Music Shop' owner, Pianos/Organs School Band Instruments, AND Guitars/Amps! So, I know a nice Ax! I played the ROAD for over 10 yrs too! I needed an ax like this for quiet 'Happy Hour' Sessions! If the Drunks can't hear each other, they Gripe to the Management! I used a Martin Sigma !2 back then. This would have been MUCH Better!
