Handcrafted acoustic-electric guitar with resonant solid woods and amplified tone control.

The Alvarez MD60CE dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar provides full, balanced tone with premium components. Designed for serious players seeking an inspiring instrument, the MD60CE features a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. This tonewood combination produces a broad tonal range with robust bass, rich mids and bright trebles. The cutaway and LR Baggs VTC pickup system give you amplified acoustic sound for gigging or recording.

Premium Solid-Wood Construction

As an all-solid instrument, the MD60CE resonates with full, nuanced tone. The AAA-grade Sitka spruce top is strong yet lightweight, vibrating freely to generate projecting highs and mids. Mahogany back and sides add midrange warmth and depth. Together, these tonewoods create an open, balanced voice ready to handle any musical style.

Cutaway and Pickup for Amplified Acoustic Sound

The MD60CE's single-cutaway dreadnought body provides comfortable access to higher frets. When plugged in, the LR Baggs VTC pickup system captures the guitar's natural acoustic qualities. The Element undersaddle pickup produces clear, full-range tone. Paired with the flexible VTC preamp, you can shape your amplified sound with bass, mid and treble controls. The soundhole-mounted preamp gives you onboard volume and tone adjustment.

Premium Appointments for Playability and Aesthetics

With premium details throughout, the MD60CE is a joy to play and behold. The mahogany neck has a soft C-shaped profile for comfort in any hand position. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge feel smooth under your fingers. Pearl dot inlays provide a touch of refinement. Black binding, a matching black pickguard and gold Alvarez tuners complete the guitar's understated yet stylish aesthetics.
