Achieve Ideal Balance and Articulation With the OM Body

With the Alvarez MF60E Herringbone, you'll experience near perfect balance and note separation thanks to its expertly designed OM body shape. The smaller body provides focused compression, while the X-bracing allows the top to vibrate freely. This combination gives you clear articulation and even response across all six strings. The notes ring true with a musical sweetness, decaying cleanly. Chords have impressive definition, with each string speaking independently. Whether you prefer fingerstyle playing or strumming, the MF60E's balance helps bring out nuanced voicings.

Lightweight X-Brace Opens Up the Projection

To keep the MF60E's tight OM response while allowing more projection, Alvarez engineered the X-brace to be lightweight. This allows the spruce top to vibrate effortlessly, putting out lively, shimmering overtones with each strum. There's added punch in the midrange, giving your playing a pleasing presence when accompanying vocals. The lightweight bracing also aids in playability, with a comfortable action that doesn't fatigue your hands. Notes and chords ring out with sustain, filling the room. When playing solo, you'll appreciate how the open-sounding X-braced top complements the focused balance of the OM body.

All-Solid Materials Make This a True All-Rounder Guitar

Constructed with all-solid tonewoods, the MF60E Herringbone is built to excel in any musical scenario. The solid spruce top provides crisp articulation while the solid mahogany back and sides offer a smooth midrange and controlled overtones. Together they yield impressive dynamics, allowing you to play with varying attack from aggressive strumming to fingerpicked passages. The all-mahogany neck offers comfortable playability and is set for proper relief. Topped with high-quality LR Baggs electronics, the MF60E is a true all-rounder, ready to shine whether recording in the studio or performing live.
