A redefined entry level travel guitar with full-width neck, spruce top, and mahogany back & sides.

The Alvarez RT16 Regent Series 7/8 Travel Size Acoustic Guitar is a perfectly formed travel sized dreadnought. Compact, yet plays just like a full size acoustic and constructed using many of the same components and techniques used in building our higher end instruments. It sounds and plays great and is made for anyone going on a journey, sitting around the campfire, the younger player or even just to have around the house as it's so nice to pick up and play. It also comes with an Alvarez padded gig bag.

The RT16 has a spruce top and mahogany back and sides, classic tone woods that generate a warm and well-balanced tone. 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.

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 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.

Comments about Alvarez RT16 Regent Series 7/8 Travel Size Acoustic Guitar:

I had previously owned one of these fine guitars; sold it, unfortunately. Definately unfortunately. This RT-16 has one of the best sounds for its size and I used it often, not just for jamming or practice, but for recording and performing as well. Sound carries well. Guitar plays well. Built with quality in mind. Time for me to buy another!
