Alvarez Regent RD260CE Dreadnought: $299, now $199 (opens in new tab)
The Regent Series from Alvarez offers stunning value for money already, but knock $100 off and that deal just gets better. With a laminate spruce top and scalloped bracing, Alvarez is looking to deliver as much resonance and sustain for your buck as possible. The dreadnought version is a great all-rounder, complete with on-board pickup, EQ, and a built-in tuner. The cutaway gives you full access across the fretboard, plus the sunburst finish is sure to appeal if you’re bored of natural spruce.

Alvarez Regent Series Grand Auditorium: $299, now $199 (opens in new tab)
As with the dreadnought, this Grand Auditorium-sized acoustic offers a lot of guitar for the money. Featuring the same built-in under-saddle pickup and electronics, this is the place to look if you’re after a tighter sound and projection from your acoustic.

As both guitars are from the same series, there are some shared features. Here are the highlights:

  • Laminate spruce top 
  • Mahogany back and sides 
  • Mahogany neck 
  • ‘Techwood’ composite fingerboard 
  • PPS Synthetic bone nut and saddle 
  • Alvarez SYS250 under-saddle pickup/preamp system with built-in tuner

This offer will expire on 11/18, so you'll need to act fast if you want to take advantage. Looking for more deals? Check out our Guitar Center Black Friday page for all the latest savings and special offers.
