Alvarez has been one of the leading
acoustic guitar brands in the U.S.A. and around the world for nearly 50 years. Its image is synonymous with quality and innovation. Alvarez instruments are known for their tone and
feel and some of the most amazing artists over the last ﬁve decades have gravitated towards the brand and its guitars.
Alvarez was established in 1965 by St. Louis Music. In the late 60’s the company began working with Master Luthier, Kazuo Yairi. This collaboration turned out to be a remarkable success and our Alvarez-Yairi guitars are still handmade in the Yairi factory today, in the small town of Kani, Japan.
The bond between SLM and Yairi is underpinned by a desire to produce some of the ﬁnest guitars in the world. Our instruments are a mix of tradition and innovation, and our culture is one of continual development and improvement. We hope you ﬁnd this attitude evident in all of our guitars from Regent Series to Masterworks, so at each price point true value and quality is found.
We are grateful that the result of our work has lead to our guitars being played by incredible musicians such as Joe Bonamassa, Bono, Johnny Cash, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Ani DiFranco, Jerry Garcia, Paul McCartney, Monte Montgomery, Carlos Santana, Bob Weir, Thom Yorke and so many more. And of course by the hundreds of thousands of amateur and professional musicians around the world. We thank you all.
We are very pleased to state Guitar Boutique is an Authorized Alvarez Dealer. Many years ago, infact my second acoustic guitar, I (owner of Guitar Boutique) personally bought an Alvarez Guitar. I enjoyed that guitar for many years. So we know just how fine Alvarez Guitars are made and are made to last. We can order any Alvarez Guitar you would like. Click HERE to visit the Alvarez Site.
This Alvarez MFA70CE is wonderful. Solid top, back, and sides and sounds it. Beautiful Abalone and Mother of Pearl Inlays, on and on, and comes in a fantastic Alvarez Hardshell 2 Tone Case. Compair her to any $2,000 and up other brands. Best bang for the buck priced at $1,099. complete at Guitar Boutique.
Masterworks are great guitars, seriously powerful and responsive and now built with our 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 SYS650 designed by B-BAND is an awesome EQ and dual pick up system that allows you to blend between the under saddle and bridge plate pickups. B-BAND’s patented electret film technology creates very true, acoustic reproduction and the system also includes a backlit chromatic digital tuner.

The Alvarez Regent Series RD26CE is designed as an entry level guitar that will keep new players focused and excited about their instrument from day one.

The models are finished in a high gloss and come in either Sitka or Rosewood outfits. Usually laminated guitars sound very thin and have difficulty projecting, but the Alvarez Regent series has had a lot of attention paid to good construction and components, and are very open and sweet sounding while maintaining a very affordable price.
