A premium acoustic-electric guitar that delivers dynamic, balanced tone.

The Alvarez Laureate Series LD70e dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar provides an exceptional playing experience. With the innovative L.R. Baggs HiFi electronics system, you'll enjoy balanced tone and impressive resistance to feedback. The hand-selected solid spruce top is carefully crafted to heighten sensitivity and projection, allowing the warm, rich tones of the rosewood back and sides to ring through.

Solid Spruce Top Resonates With Rich Tone

The Laureate Series LD70e's handcrafted solid spruce top is carefully seasoned to produce a resonant, full-bodied tone. As you play the guitar, the top opens up and provides a wider dynamic range and sweeter highs. The solid spruce top gives your music a rich, nuanced quality that inspires creativity.

Rosewood Back and Sides Provide Warmth and Punch

The hand-selected rosewood back and sides complement the spruce top with a focused, balanced tone. Rosewood adds warmth, depth and a clear low end that provides rhythmic punch. Its dense, reflective qualities also enhance projection, allowing the LD70e to fill a room with gorgeous sound.

Innovative Bracing Enhances Resonance and Sustain

The Laureate Series LD70e features an FS6 bracing system that optimizes the response of the solid spruce top. Hand-cut braces made of quartersawn spruce efficiently transfer vibration through the top, enhancing resonance, sustain and volume. Even the side braces are hand-selected to match the rosewood back and sides, allowing the entire guitar to resonate as a cohesive whole.

Plug in and Play With the L.R. Baggs HiFi Pickup System

With the L.R. Baggs HiFi pickup system, you can amplify your Laureate LD70e naturally. The HiFi system accurately captures the guitar's acoustic properties and tone, resisting feedback. Discreet bridge plate sensors listen to your instrument's acoustic movement and tonewoods without dampening resonance. You'll hear your guitar's true voice through the system. Volume and tone controls mounted inside the guitar's soundhole allow you to easily shape your amplified tone.
