MD70BG by Alvarez: A Bluegrass revelation that blends traditional charm with modern dynamics. Solid Sitka spruce, East Indian Rosewood, and vintage detailing converge for a sonic experience as thrilling as a midnight desert ride.
In the deranged year of 2018, Alvarez burst through the conventional barricades with the MD70BG—like a rogue journalist on a midnight ride, crafting the hymns of Bluegrass with a modern twist. It wasn’t just a guitar; it was a rebellious statement. And boy, did it resonate. Now, just when you thought it couldn’t get more audacious, the MD70BG has entered the scene, radiating raw power akin to a ’70s convertible roaring down a desert highway.
With the spirit of the Rosewood, this devil sings with a bellowing bass, while those trebles shimmer like the Las Vegas skyline at dawn. Strum it, and you’re hit by a sonic wave, thanks to the sorcery of the FS6 bracing system and that top-shelf AAA Sitka. Every note tells a tale, every chord an anthem of clarity, with a balance that’s as harmonious as a Thompson prose.
Dressed to kill, it’s got the swagger of a renegade, paying homage to the old-world Bluegrass—those open-gear nickel tuners, iconic inlays, and a tortoiseshell pickguard that gleams with mischief. And that gloss finish? It’s as smooth as the last sip of a fine whiskey.
Playing the MD70BG is a trip. Its projection reaches out like the vast stretches of the American heartland, compelling and vast. This isn’t just a guitar. It’s an experience, demanding to be felt, and damn near impossible to set aside.

Top Wood: A pristine Solid AAA Sitka Spruce, fearless in its resonance.
