Alvarez AP70

I currently own two 000 12-fret slot-head acoustics (a rosewood Martin 000-srgt for pure acoustic situations and a mahogany Recording King ROS-16 with a Fishman pickup installed for venues requiring amplification).  Lately I've been looking on line at the Alvarez AP70 as none of the local stores have one in stock.  A parlor size spruce/rosewood 12-fret slot-head sounds just like the ticket for taking along on my river trips, and the price point sounds like an incredible value for a rosewood/spruce guitar.  However I can't find the dimensions for this guitar to see if it will easily fit in a dry bag and not take up too much room in my raft.  I've played a few other "parlor" guitars and the dimensions have varied.  I've found one review on you-tube by Acoustic Guitar magazine and the guitar sounded great (nice low-end for a small guitar), but other than nut width and materials, no dimensions were given.  It appears to be about the size of a Martin 00.

Have any of you Chordians played one of these little guys and provide me with some input as to size?

Thanks,

DE
