The Alvarez MPA66SHB is a well made parlor guitar from the Masterworks series, designed to deliver a blend of traditional aesthetics, modern playability, and tonal quality. This guitar is particularly suitable for players who appreciate the compact size and intimate sound of a parlor guitar, combined with the qualities of Masterworks all-solid wood construction. Here's an in-depth look at its features and specifications:


  • Design and Craftsmanship: As a part of the Masterworks series, the MPA66SHB reflects Alvarez's commitment to high-quality craftsmanship. It's a parlor-shaped guitar, known for its comfortable playability and focused, warm sound. The design showcases meticulous attention to detail in every aspect, from the wood selection to the final finishing.
  • Tonal Characteristics: The guitar is crafted with a solid African Mahogany top and back, which contributes to its warm, resonant tone. It is particularly well-suited for fingerstyle playing and light strumming. The FS6 bracing system, a forward-shifted X-brace design, enhances the vibration and resonance of the guitar, resulting in a rich and articulate sound.
  • Aesthetics: The MPA66SHB is visually striking, featuring a Shadowburst finish on the solid mahogany top and complemented by hand-crafted Paua abalone purfling. The guitar's visual appeal is as remarkable as its sound quality.
  • Masterworks Series Quality: This series is known for its all-solid construction, ensuring superior tonal quality and resonance. The MPA66SHB benefits from Alvarez's expertise in guitar making, with carefully seasoned tonewoods and a thin finish that contribute to its excellent sound and response.
