An all-mahogany dreadnought with robust tone and easy playability.

The Alvarez MD66CE dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar delivers the bold, woody sound that musicians love from all-mahogany construction. Its solid African mahogany top and back produce impressive projection with clear, strong bass frequencies that cut through the mix. The mahogany's crisp articulation also brings out plenty of midrange character for versatile tone shaping. With the comfortable cutaway design, you'll have easy access to solo beyond the 10th fret. And the understated, minimalist look puts all the focus on the richly grained solid mahogany top.

Robust Tone and Volume With All-Solid Mahogany Body

The MD66CE dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar is designed to showcase the tonal strengths of all-solid African mahogany construction. From the first strum, you'll hear the mahogany's natural emphasis on the lows and mids. It produces a bold, robust voice with impressive projection that fills the room. The solid mahogany back adds volume and sustain to support the mahogany top's clear bass response and woody character. Overall, the MD66CE delivers the crisp articulation and balanced tone that makes mahogany so versatile for various musical styles.

Comfortable Playability With Cutaway Design

Shredding solos is easy with the MD66CE's comfortable cutaway design. The sloped shoulder gives your fretting hand unrestricted access all the way up the neck. Hitting the high notes is smooth and effortless. The cutaway is an especially handy feature for lead players who like to take advantage of the upper register. It also comes in handy when you need to reach challenging chords up the neck. Overall, the ergonomic cutaway adds to the MD66CE's impressive playability.

LR Baggs HiFi Pickup System for Natural Amplified Tone

Plug in the MD66CE for amplified performances with the onboard LR Baggs HiFi pickup system. It accurately captures the crisp articulation and balanced tone of the all-mahogany body. The undersaddle piezo pickup combined with the soundboard transducer produce a robust low end with clear mids and smooth highs. That means you'll enjoy the MD66CE's naturally balanced acoustic tone even at high volumes on stage. The HiFi system also includes flexible EQ controls to shape your amplified sound. Dial in the perfect tone whether you're jamming with a band or playing a solo gig.

Minimalist Style Puts the Focus on Gorgeous Mahogany

With its understated, minimalist design, the MD66CE puts the spotlight squarely on its solid mahogany construction. The flawless gloss finish allows the wood's rich grain patterns to shine through. You'll appreciate the intricate dark brown hues and figuring in the African mahogany. Both the top and back are crafted from solid mahogany rather than laminates, highlighted by the MD66CE's clean lines. The headstock shape mirrors the body's classic slope-shouldered dreadnought outline. Together, they create a cohesive and refined contemporary look.
