ALVAREZ REGENT SERIES (RD,RF,RC - RECENT MODELS)

The recent Alvarez Regent Series includes models dating from the late 1990s. The Regent Series includes RD (dreadnought shaped), RC (grand concert shaped) and RF (folk shaped) acoustic guitars. Variations between the models are with and without cutaways, electronics and solid wood tops and there was a 12 string RD20S-12. Up to around 2000 the series was split into Regent Standard models with the lower model numbers (RD10, RF20, RD20) and Regent Deluxe models (RD30, RF30, RD50).
