Have it? I want it, tell me about it. How are Alvarez's?

Any info is appreciated. Thanks!
Well... first off... although its manufactured in China, Alvarez makes very good mid level guitars... unless you move up to the Yairi's, but that's totally different.

The cedar top's tone will sound the same for the life of the guitar. That's my main beef with cedar. Its as good as it gets when you first play it, where spruce will open up and tthe tone will become better... well rounded after time.

I prefer spruce over cedar any day of the week, but that is my preference.

There's a couple of reviews of it here.
