OVERVIEW

Traditional sunburst with visible mahogany grain.

The 266 models are beautifully finished and have a deep glass-like shine. The vintage sunburst on Mahogany brings out the grain to create a warm look to match its tone. These mahogany top guitars have a focused sound with strong mids, great for recording and live playing.

 

The SYS250 EQ and pickup are designed by B-band and provide quality output and additional functionality from its accurate, chromatic back-lit tuner.

 

The Regent 266 is designed to get the best out if its components and for them to work together to produce a tone and player experience rarely found in such affordable instruments.

    Comments about Alvarez Regent RD266 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I use this guitar to play gigs locally. When I received the instrument I was amazed at the great tone - quality and volume. I have never owned an Alvarez guitar before and bought it after reading a recommendation on the MF website. Glad I did! I purchased a second guitar (same model)) with a built in pickup. The action is fantastic, neck just the right diameter (small hands) and outstanding materials and workmanship. I coudn't believe this was a laminated top guitar - beautiful sound. I have compared it soundwise to Taylor and Martin. I don't say it is equal but it is certainly close to replicating their feel and sound! Great instrument!

      Comments about Alvarez Regent RD266 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This is a great guitar for the money, and it is almost always on sale! I got mine for about 35% of the regular price, and I was pleasantly surprised with how nice it was. The guitar looks great, sounds good, and has very good action right out of the box. The electronics are decent, and the built in tuner is a nice bonus. My only knock on this guitar is that it seems to go out of tune a lot, but for this price range, that is no big deal at all.

      I probably wouldn't use this guitar for gigging, but I probably could.

      For this price range, this is a great deal! I would highly recommend this guitar.

        Comments about Alvarez Regent RD266 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I was looking for an acoustic/electric to play some small gigs and got this one on sale through Musicians Friend. I've owned a few Alvarez guitars before and have always been happy with the quality of their budget friendly instruments. This guitar sounds and plays great. The only modifications I made upon receiving it is I filed down the saddle and gave a slight adjustment to the truss rod to lower the action a little, and put on some Elixer Nano's. The guitar plays great, it has a good tone, and projects decent when playing unplugged. It has a very balanced mid tone. Not overly bassy and not to high. It looks awesome and is comfortable to hold. I'm happy with it.
