This thing is an absolute cannon of a guitar.  I am not sure I have heard a louder Dread that didn't come out of a certain Pennsylvania factory before the 1950s.  It punches way higher than its price would suggest.

Here is what Alvarez says:

In 2018 we launched the MD60BG, our take on a Bluegrass styled Dreadnought with modern dynamics for players looking for that optimal full tone. The MD60BG has become one of our best-selling guitars, and our Rosewood version takes power and clarity to a new level.

The MD70BG’s response is instant, and its notes are clear and robust. The rosewood helps deliver sonorous bass frequencies complemented by shimmering trebles. When strumming, the FS6 bracing system and AAA Sitka top help deliver clarity and separation, and balance is clearly audible across all six strings.

These beautifully dressed guitars pay tribute to traditional Bluegrass instruments with open gear nickel tuners, classic inlays, premium tortoiseshell style pickguard and a flawless gloss finish.

The projection and overall breadth of tonal reach of this guitar is outstanding, making it hard to put down for those players looking for a powerful open voicing and instant response.
