Made with the professional acoustic guitarist in mind, the MDA70CE Masterworks A70 Series Dreadnought gives you an incredible, full-sounding, performance-ready, all-solid wood acoustic-electric at an exceptional value.

Nothing can really match a guitar made from all-solid wood. The deflection of the notes is quicker, the quality of the note is better and the sound of your guitar will improve as it ages.

Masterworks are great guitars, seriously powerful and responsive and now built with Alvarez's FST2M bracing system, their sound is even more refined and articulate. FSTM is a forward shifted X brace design. Both X braces and asymmetric tone bars are considerately scalloped to displace the vibrational energy and help create a strong and fluid tone and response.

The sound is warm, open and clear, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.

Balance across the strings is important to the professional artist and Masterworks achieves this while offering the dynamic range and volume needed to help optimize the relationship between the player and the instrument.

The LR Baggs StagePro Element is a side-mounted preamp/EQ that offers battery access and a full chromatic tuner that is hidden beneath the control panel to maintain a clean, classy look. The three band EQ with phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions.

Beautifully voiced, professional guitars made from all-solid, seasoned tone wood.

The MDA70CE Masterworks A70 Series Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar produces a deep, rich and powerful voice thanks to the Dreadnought body, the solid AA Sitka spruce top, and the beautiful solid East Indian rosewood back and sides. The cutaway design allows for easy, comfortable upper fret access while the mahogany neck features a superbly playable rosewood 'board and a semi-gloss back finish for a smooth fretting hand feel. Other premium features include a bi-level rosewood bridge with a real bone saddle, a real bone nut, a set of premium die-cast gold tuners with ebony buttons, paua abalone purfling, an abalone fretboard inlay, a rosewood headplate, a natural finish, and gorgeous flame maple binding. Includes Alvarez hardshell wood case.
