ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Alvarez Guitars is thrilled to announce it is shipping its new bluegrass model from its Masterworks Series, the MD60BG.The guitar debuted earlier this year at Winter NAMM 2018 in Anaheim California.
“We were very inspired by the success of our genre specific Jazz & Blues Series,” Says Chris Meikle, Senior VP at St. Louis Music and head of Alvarez development. “The MD60BG and MD60EBG is our offering for players and fans of bluegrass music. A lot of design went into delivering a guitar perfect for flatpicking. We spent time designing the bracing system to enhance our bass and mids, making the guitar very responsive to play with a plectrum. We believe flatpickers and fans of the genre are going to love this guitar.”
Part of the all solid wood Masterworks Series, the MD60BG and the electronics model MD60BG feature AA Grade Solid Sitka Spruce Tops, with Solid African Mahogany Backs & Sides. The bracing system is a Back Shifted Scalloped X Brace, perfect for flatpicking. MD60BG is finished in a natural gloss and the MD60EBG features LR Baggs electronics.
