Over the past twelve months, Alvarez Guitars have become incredibly popular with Staff and Customers here a PMT. We’re ecstatic to announce the arrival of even more of these awesome instruments - including the new Artist Elite series - and they’re landing at a PMT Store near you soon!
Approximately twelve months ago PMT became an authorised dealer of Alvarez Guitars, and the brand soon found favour with our staff and customers alike. These awesome, reasonably-priced guitars represent some of the best value for money on the market, and cover pretty much every play-style and musical genre you could wish for.
So, without further ado, let’s separate them by series and take a look at what we’ve got!
Alvarez Masterworks Guitars are truly eloquent, professional-grade instruments crafted with all-solid tonewoods and premium-quality finishes.
The construction of each guitar sees the use of carefully cured woods, and expertly-designed components, resulting in an exquisite instrument that sits amongst the very best in its price bracket.
First, we have the stunning Alvarez MFA66CESH – a Folk-style electro acoustic, with a lower-bout cutaway, and a Shadowburst gloss finish.
This gorgeous guitar showcases Alvarez’s commitment to combining incredible craftsmanship, tone and beauty. With it’s all Solid African Mahogany construction coming together to produce the kind of warm, throaty “bark” favoured by countless folk and blues players throughout the 20th Century.

Secondly, we have the gorgeous Alvarez MF60OM – a classic-style OM (Orchestra Model) with a premium-grade Spruce top, herringbone body binding, and a Natural Gloss finish.
Whilst similar in shape to a traditional round-shouldered Dreadnought, this Orchestra Model is in fact smaller in size, making it much more comfortable to play.
This shallower, more-compact body – crafted from Solid Mahogany, with a premium-grade Sitka Spruce top – produces a tone with plenty of mid-range focus, making it perfect for finger-picking and folk styles.
