Both beautiful and sounds amazing. It cost me more due to import fees to Canada but my internet search always brought me back to XGuitars … and for good reason as I always prefer to buy from knowledgeable and helpful stores. This is my first guitar and really appreciated the suggestions Geoff made regarding strings and changes to the bridge and nut. Being a senior, I hope to live long enough to need another lol.
I was very pleased with my new Flamenco guitar. The cedar has a nice warmer sound. My first purchase with XGuitars and it will not be my last. Geoffrey is very knowledgeable and good at his craft. He is very understanding, gives good suggestions and patient. The man has integrity. I will definitely be a return customer. Thank you Geoffrey and God Bless you and yours.
I could not be more pleased with the service or the guitar. I can't put it down. Sounds great and is a blast to play!
I was looking for a high quality, reasonably priced student guitar and this is it! It has a solid cedar top that is nicely resonant with good sustain on all strings at low and high frets. It is much easier to play than the old classical guitar that I started with. I bought it from XGuitars so that it would be set up by a professional luthier. Geoff corresponded with me about the setup, lowered the action, and even filed and tapered a high fret to avoid a buzz. He noticed that the shipping method I had selected would take a bit longer, so we changed it and I got a bit of a refund. My new guitar arrived in perfect condition, with the strings Geoff recommended, and optimized for ease of play by a beginner like me. I'm very happy with this experience.
The Alhambra 10 Premier is an incredible guitar - amazingly beautiful in sound and appearance, and impeccably set up (by Geoff)!
Thanks so much for your efforts, Geoff!
This is the second classical guitar I have bought from XGuitars. I choose XGuitars for three reasons: 1) the excellent selection of fine classical guitars at a fair and reasonable price, 2) the friendly, knowledgeable, and timely service provided by Geoff Ferdon, and 3) proper guitar setup. The Cordoba Friedrich guitar arrived a few days after my purchase carefully packaged and perfectly set up. Simply put, this is the most beautiful sounding guitar I have ever played. The guitar has a deep, rich, and resonant sound. It has amazing volume without compromising the sound quality. Daniel Friedrich is a legendary luthier. This guitar incorporates all of the techniques he employed in building his guitars at a fraction of the cost. I recommend this guitar without hesitation to anyone looking for a concert quality cedar top instrument.
I have severe osteoarthritis, particularly in my left hand, so guitar setup is especially important to me. I asked Geoff to set the action as low as possible without creating fret buzz. He did so perfectly. I can sit and play for an hour without pain. Proper setup based on the guitarist's personal preferences is important for any guitar purchase to maximize your playing enjoyment. This is another reason for my choice of XGuitars. Thank you, Geoff!
An amazing guitar. Geoff recommended this guitar and it has been nothing but great right out of the box. He was patient, answered all our questions, provided photos- it was a great buying experience. Thank you so much Geoff
Geoff at XGuitars has been and still is exceptionally excellent at providing guidance to me while trying to decide what guitar to buy.
I finally decided to upgrade to a better quality guitar, but was concerned about finding the right guitar for my style of playing and the price I should expect to spend.
Geoff patiently guided me in choosing and provided professional advice which ultimately helped me feel secure with the choice I made.
I am extremely grateful to Geoff and pleasantly pleased with XGuitars!
The 9P is absolutely gorgeous! The workmanship is meticulous. Geoff's description indicated the guitar was "loud". It is loud, perfectly loud. I'm a finger style hobbyist and prefer ultra light strings for my old fingers. The 9P has plenty of volume without an amp and I find the tone to be perfect.
First, I did my research and XGuitars was easily the best online source for Classical Guitars. The website is outstanding, and Geoff clearly has the background and passion for treating the customer right. I knew my price range and I was able to find the perfect guitar for me based on the descriptions, Geoff's personal comments, and reviews from others. I did add a request to my order and didn't ask for a response, but Geoff was quick to call me to let me know he would be able to get my guitar to me prior to Christmas. As for the guitar, it is a giant step up from what I was previously playing. The guitar has a beautiful full sound and is a beauty just to look at! Thanks Geoff!
Without a doubt, one of the best guitars for the price range that I have ever played.
The service from Geoff at Xguitars.com was even better than the guitar.
I will be a loyal customer of Ramirez as well as Geoff.
It was a pleasure buying my 8P from Geoff at XGuitars. The 8P is a beautiful great sounding and easy to play guitar. Thanks for your help and my next purchase will certainly be at XGuitars.
This guitar is a fine example of a concert guitar in the mold of the French builders who's sound is clearer than the Spanish builders at a fraction of the cost than if you bought a Robert Bouchet, Daniel Friederich or Daniel Lesueur guitar. XGuitars as a company and it's service are excellent!! The definition of excellent is something done as well as can be done. They are a totally responsive seller!
As someone who has played guitar for 17 years (the first 16 of which were on acoustic guitars), I'm a little particular about them at this point. For the last year or so, I've been getting into classical and flamenco, so I expanded to playing nylon string guitars. Being so particular, I had to do research prior to purchasing, and given that one of my favorite learner guitars was an Alhambra 1 OP (a beautiful instrument in its own right, mind you), I decided to look deeper into Alhambra. After learning about Geoff at Xguitars.com and his history of working with Alhambra, I knew he was the person I wanted to do business with. Absolutely no regrets! You can tell he is really passionate about what he does. He says "anything" that he can help with, and I really believe he means that.
But now, onto the guitar. She is absolutely gorgeous! And while I did have her upgraded slightly, to include a bone nut and saddle (rather than the stock melamine), she has such a wonderful timbre. A broad richness that is both warm and has just the slightest "dirty" edge to it. But its a good kind of dirty. I imagine songs from the traditional Spanish classical repertoire would fit her perfectly! I tested the stock strings against my favored Augustine strings, and I have to say, even the stock D'Addario's were still enough to showcase her qualities.
All in all, my experience with Geoff has been nothing short of stellar. He is prompt in his communication, and he is really fair as a businessman. And I have to say once more, I love this guitar! If you enjoy the sound of nylon strings and particularly Spanish classical, I think you'd love it too.
I have now owned 3 well made Japanese guitars over the past 30 years, and have liked every one, but this Alhambra PREMIERE PRO MADAGASCAR is by far the crème de la crème! Trust me! Buy this guitar, you will not regret it! Its worth well more than its list price.
Its shape, size, feel, sound is top of the line in every way. Comes with excellent tuners, and the "ergo neck" is extremely comfortable; makes barre chords much easier than many guitars I have tried. The workmanship is A++!
Xguitars is the company I always recommend to everyone looking for a guitar, strings, or accessories. Definitely 5 stars!
