Solid Sitka Spruce Top Offers Bright, Balanced Tone

Strumming and fingerpicking reveal the MP60E's articulate note separation. The solid wood top also blossoms over time, maturing into richer overtones.

Utilizing an undersaddle transducer, the LR Baggs HiFi accurately conveys the guitar's inherent acoustic sound. From percussive rhythms to fingerpicked melodies, it reproduces the MP60E's balanced tone with impressive realism. The onboard volume knob controls your amplified level, while the tone knob cuts highs for a warmer sound. Whether performing live or recording in the studio, you'll appreciate the acoustic integrity of the L.R. Baggs system.

Hand-Crafted Paua Abalone Body Purfling Provides Visual Flair

Adding to the MP60E's refined aesthetics, hand-inlaid paua abalone graces the body purfling. The iridescent sea shell shimmers under stage lights, accentuating the flawless Shadowburst finish. Every glance at the Alvarez MP60E reveals new depths and dimensions in the hypnotic abalone.
