The Alvarez RD17 is a serious guitar and constructed using many of the same components and techniques used in building our higher end instruments. It's sounds and plays superbly well and is a classic looking Dreadnought. The RD17 has a spruce top and rosewood back and sides, classic tone woods that generate a warm and well-balanced tone with great highs and lows. We have made the neck profile on Regent Series a little finer so they're easier to play and every model is constructed using a dovetail neck joint that optimizes the transfer of energy between the neck and body.
At Alvarez we approach the design and development of all of our instruments in the same way, no matter if the guitar is an all-solid Alvarez-Yairi or a more entry-level instrument from our Regent Series. Every single detail is considered, every chance we have to make our guitars play, sound or look better is taken. The compromises we have to make to produce less expensive instruments, are only made when we're confident we've optimized the instrument in every single way we can for it's price point, thus delivering true quality and value.
The result of this approach and commitment to our brand and its players is class-leading instruments that have been at the heart of acoustic music for over 45 years.
All Regent Series instruments are fitted with the Alvarez bi-level bridge to carry more vibration to the top, which improves tone and resonance, and the PPS saddle and nut help to improve response and sustain.
This instrument has also been finished using an electrostatic painting process for a more even finish that uses less paint in its application. This allows the guitar to sing a little more and it also looks fantastic.
Premium die cast tuners deliver tuning stability.
Comes with the Alvarez Limited Lifetime Warranty.
