Alvarez MFA66SHB, Masterwork Series, OM/Folk Guitar, Shadowburst Finish, Solid African Mahogany Construction

Alvarez's Masterwork series of guitars helps to demonstrate the pinnacle of more than five decades of the company's dedication to continual improvement. Featuring a careful selection of cured tonewoods, carefully designed components, and stunning finishes, these guitars would make a wonderful addition to any discerning guitarist's collection.

Beautiful, High-Quality Folk Guitar

With the Alvarez MFA66SHB you get a beautiful Folk guitar that's been constructed from all-solid African Mahogany, finished in Shadowburst with a thin Gloss coating.

You'd be forgiven for thinking these high-specced guitars would cost a small fortune, but they represent some of the best quality instruments available in their price range.

Exquisite Tonewoods

The all-mahogany construction of each of the Alvarez MFA66SHB is 100% solid tonewoods, in keeping with all other Masterwork series. This helps the guitar to produce a harmonically rich voice with pleny of warm overtones, projected loudly and clearly.

In this particular case, the guitar is constructed with a Top, Back and Sides made from Solid African Mahogany. An all-mahogany construction is ideal for flat-pickers and strummers, providing you with an earthy, folk-like sound akin to what you'd expect from a traditional acoustic Blues performance.

Forward Shifted X-Bracing

The positioning of the guitar's bracing - in this case, Forward Shifted - is as important to the instrument's voice as anything else on the guitar. With the Forward Shifted X-Bracing, the Alvarez MFA66SHB ensures a more natural resonance from the top wood, resulting in a much more open sound, with clear bass fundamentals and plenty of projection.

High-Grade Construction

Designed and built to get the very best out of its components, the Alvarez MFA66SHB is the ultimate performing guitar, whether that performance is in the studio or live on stage.
