    By Noah Allen
    For the price, this is a fantastic guitar. I think some of the frets need filing (some slight buzzing.) For a guitar on the internet.. can't argue with the quality.

    5Blown Away by the Value!
    By matt
    I was really blown away by this guitar. After going to every music shop in my area, I was losing hope that I could get an affordable acoustic that would be up to my standards as an aspiring artist. Everything else in the price range felt and sounded cheap, not to mention most guitars had buzzing all over the neck. I knew almost as soon as I played this guitar I would buy it because it had reasonable action and didn't buzz, not to mention the gorgeous wood grain. It also sounds like a REAL instrument. This was it's biggest surprise for me, as I had been playing my father's $2000 Larrivee and everything else sounded like garbage coming from that. The Alvarez does not disappoint in the slightest after playing that, in fact I may like it better. I've also played a friend's $700 Taylor and I couldn't believe how similar the Alvarez felt to that more expensive guitar. The craftsmanship is solid, even the frets were surprisingly well filed and smooth. After a quick neck adjustment by my luthier, it plays fantastic. Just like the description says, it makes you want to pick it up and play. The only issue I could find was a blotch on the clearcoat in an inconspicuous area and a small area of cloudiness in the clearcoat. But hey, for the price, and considering how it excels in all other aspects, I can easily overlook that. The built-in tuner isn't as good as a real tuner, but it could certainly be useful in a pinch when you forget a tuner. The electronics have worked well so far and I like the input jack being separate from the strap button. The tuning keys hold tune very well and the neck is a comfortable medium-thick profile. To be honest, I don't know how they can possibly build these so well and sell them so cheap (besides obviously building them in China). I say Bravo Alvarez! If you're a beginner to even a professional, you'd be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't check out Alvarez!

    One point of clarification; mine does not have a bound neck like the picture shows. I believe they may have mixed it up with the RF27, or the specs have changed (mine is a 2014).
