Alvarez RC210

Alvarez RC210 is a classical guitar of Alvarez’s entry level Regent series. It is great for beginners who are looking for a cheap nylon string classical guitar to start with.

Alvarez RC210 is a cheap beginner classical guitar with decent tone. The letter R stands for “Regent” the low end series of Alvarez and C stands for “classical”. The tonewood of this guitar is a combination of spruce top, mahogany side and back. All are laminated. But the non solid top doesn’t result to inferior sound. In fact, the sound is very warm and sweet which is great for Spanish classical guitar music. Although in general, solid top is better than laminate top, but we also can find some excellent laminate top guitars that sound great.


  • Select spruce top
  • Gold tuning machines


The sound from Alvarez RC210 is warm and balanced. I can’t believe the sound is from a laminated spruce top guitar. It is worth the money you pay and very nice starter guitar.


Alvarez RC210 is a very playable guitar if you are used to play classical guitar.
