Alvarez takes pride in their craftsmanship and attention to details. That is why their have created DYMR70, a dreadnought beauty from Alvarez-Yairi Masterworks series, crafted by master luthiers to achieve perfection in sound, build and playability. This is a beautiful looking model that would be a great fit for professionals. Beginners would definitely enjoy it but unless you have a couple of thousand dollars lying around and are absolutely sure you will keep on playing for years, you should go for a cheaper model.


The DYMR70 is a round shoulder dreadnought acoustic guitar that has solid Sitka Spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. Alvarez utilized the standard, yet very sturdy and durable, forward shifted, scalloped X bracing. The neck is made of Mahogany, a great tonewood to create balanced, warm sound. The minuscule details taken into account in construction of this model is why this guitar has beautiful, harmonious sound that will blow your mind.  


Alvarez has equipped this model with Ebony direct coupled bridge, Rosewood fingerboard and headstock plate. The nut and saddle are made from real bone, as expected from the top notch construction and material use. With help of this materials and details, the guitar achieves the upper echelons of quality in construction and sound. With Gotoh 510s Gold with Ebony Buttons tuners and D’Addario EXP strings and high-gloss sunburst finish is an epitome of beauty and functionality. This model also comes with deluxe wood case so that you can keep this precious beauty sealed off from any harm and danger.


I think it is almost needless to discuss the sound of this guitar AND yet I do have to proceed. The rich, full, melodious tone of DYMR70 will hit you from the first moment you pick it up and only get better with time and practice. It is rare to find the sound as balanced and tone as vibrant as on this model. The loudness of this guitar does not mean that the details of the tonality have been disregarded. Overall, I think when you are choosing a guitar in this price range the only thing that should have the number one place in decision making is the sound of the guitar and this one is definitely a winner.


The DYMR70 is a beautiful looking, well constructed dreadnought acoustic guitar that might be in the higher price range but definitely delivers on the promise of being one of the best guitars you will ever hold in your hand. To be fair, if you are a beginner I doubt getting a $2000 guitar is the best idea in the world BUT for anyone sure that they will be playing for years to come this model is a great asset in developing your skills and enjoying playing for years and years.
