We’re comparing two very similar and yet incredibly different guitars today, our Alvarez Masterworks MD60BG and our Alvarez-Yairi Masterworks DYM60HD. Both are cannons made from spruce and mahogany but tell different stories with their individual voices. Watch the A/B demo at the end to hear both of these beautiful Dreadnoughts in action.

With Masterworks Elite, we aim to deliver some seriously cool guitars at unprecedented value at their price point, and today’s episode of Alvarez TV discusses what goes into the making of this striking series.

Rosewood or Mahogany? We’re asked very often about the differences between these two tonewoods, so today’s episode of Alvarez TV is all about one of our favorite conversations, Rosewood vs. Mahogany.

Have you ever wondered if your pick shapes your tone? If so, how much? Can you hear the difference between various shapes and sizes? We’re doing a deep dive into different pick (or as we say, plectrum) gauges, materials, and shapes.

A guitar for every player. We’re discussing our multi-award winning solid top Artist Series on Alvarez TV: What it is, why we created it, and how we built an entire line with the player in mind. We worked to create a truly comprehensive series of guitars with virtually every guitar body shape and wood configuration available, and a staggering quality to cost ratio.

Would you play a Parlor instead of an OM? Do you reach for a Folk? Today on Alvarez TV we’re exploring the sounds and shapes of each of these models and what makes them unique. Which one would you reach for?

How can you craft all-solid guitars, full of character…for every player? We’re discussing what goes into our Masterworks series of guitars, from how we select our tops to why we created this series for players. Join the discussion on everything from solid wood to bridge pins on Alvarez TV.

We’ve discussed the difference between 12th fret and 14th fret neck joins and today we’re doing an A/B comparison between two of our favorite 12-fret and 14-fret models so you can hear the difference for yourself. Looking for resonance? Sustain for days? Projection? Find out the difference between each in our 12 vs. 14 dreadnought comparison. Many thanks to Herschel for this question.
