OVERVIEW

The entry-level guitar. Redefined.

The RF260SE is a great-sounding and understated OM with quality spruce top and mahogany back and sides, fitted with the Alvarez SYS250 from B-Band, a three-band EQ with onboard digital backlit tuner.

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 their 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.

Sweet and light

By Phil

from Saint George, Maine

Comments about Alvarez RF260SE Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this model on sale, but would buy again at the current price. Pristine satin finish, light weight with sweet electronics. It's light, balanced, and chime-like voice sounds great plugged in. I love the classic look. The retro Alvarez case bought separately looks great with it. Small size folk body perfect for stand up singing and strumming, as I do. My first plug in, so happy with this.

nice size and great sound

Comments about Alvarez RF260SE Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have never been disappointed with alvarez guitars. Playable out of the box. For what you can buy a Mexican Taylor or Martin you could buy three of these and get a better sound out of all three.

Comments about Alvarez RF260SE Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have owned this guitar for a couple of weeks and enjoy playing it. I bought it as a camping, travel guitar when I don't want to expose my more expensive guitars to the rigors of travel and camping. I seem to have to tune it more than my other guitars but that could be a string issue. I'm going to change the strings and see if it improves.
While doing my research I went to the Alvarez Web site where it's stated that all of the RF series come with a gig bag. Upon further checking when mine arrived without one I was told by Alvarez customer service that this model was made for Musicians Friend and at their request did not include the gig bag. Not terribly disappointed as the price is such that I can buy a good gig bag and still come in under the price offered by other sites.
In conclusion I think that anyone who is looking for a good second guitar with decent electronics and a built in tuner won't be disappointed with this rig.

    Comments about Alvarez RF260SE Folk Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I was looking for an acoustic to get kinda cheap from the 4th of July sale and happened on this little guitar on accident. It was not in the sale but was marked down for some odd reason. I was on a really tight budget so I couldn't believe the price so I bought it. I really had my hopes up about this guitar. And when I opened the box and started playing I was so pleased I had bought this guitar instead of another. It is a smaller guitar but the sound is amazing. The strings are really close to the fret board which makes it so easy to play. It has electronics built in but I have no use for these. Right out of the box it was play ready. Tuned it slightly and took off. I love it.

      This is my first Guitar so I am not an expert. Well built Guitar, no issues so far - I am happy with the purchase. This Guitar needs to be tuned - Out of the box everything is off tune and the best part is it has builtin tuner.
