The Alvarez MPA66ESHB Electro Acoustic Guitar features a Parlor body, which is slightly smaller than an average sized guitar. The Parlor shape offers a balanced tone with a powerful projection, and also delivers a perfect mid-range tone. This type of body shape has recently had a resurgence with modern players, due to its versatility and compact size, making it a favourite with travelling musicians. Its compact size also accommodates fingerpicking players, as its nipped in waist means it can be held closer to the body.
All-Mahogany Body Offers a Rich Tone
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. The use of solid African mahogany with this model offers a clear and direct focus, along with a stunning dark grain. Mahogany is a very dense tonewood and a popular choice for guitars, due to it delivering a full,rich sound with added punch. The sound is warm, open and clear, and both the treble and bass registers are clearly present and balanced in relation to each other.
LR Baggs StagePro For Added Volume
With the additional LR Baggs StagePro EQ and Element Pick Up, the MPA66ESHB delivers a powerful volume for larger events. This innovative Element was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play, and features a flexible film sensor only 2 thousandths of an inch thick which picks up the guitar’s most delicate nuances. In addition, its discreet EQ sidemount located on the upper bout, allows you to effortlessly achieve the perfect tone and features phase inversion and Garrett Null notch filter controls deliver warm, pristine sound even under the most challenging conditions. Furthermore, a built-in chromatic tuner provides fast and easy tuning, and includes battery access that is hidden beneath the control panel, maintaining a clean, classy look that doesn't take away from the overall design.
