Sagework Magnetic Guitar Supports
This guitar is amazing! It is very well balanced. It has an even sound through all the strings. It is powerful yet, very refined. The lows are controlled and the trebles are sweet. This guitar is a nice contrast to my Rodriguez. The Rodriguez is powerful and has a very notable "spanish" sound. Whereas the Hauser, has a more elegant and refined sound. This is a lot of guitar for the money. I would definitely recommend it!!
So far I love this guitar support. It's not quite as adjustable as some, but once you find the right placement it's very comfortable. It's also nice that you can choose to have it on your right or left leg, I've probably only played with it for about 15 hours combined so far, but the suction cups haven't slipped at all. I like that this model is offered for narrow body guitars, since I play on a 7/8 scale guitar and the sides are 3.5'' at the upper bout.
To say this guitar is magnificent would be an understatement! There is a lot of harmonic balance between the bass and treble strings on the spruce-topped model!
And Geoff setup the guitar wonderfully! Straight out of the box, it simply felt right!!! Thank you Geoff for the hard work!!!
Now... I need to go practice more so I can be worthy of this guitar!!!
Easy to use, much better than suction cups.
There are many places where you can buy guitar strings! It was my pleasure to have ordered from xGuitars.com, an online vendor I found from their website. The fulfillment of the order, prompt shipment, careful packaaging, assured me this is the place for future purchases. Along with the package, I also received a personal letter from the owner, Mr. Geoff Ferdón who introduced himself a graduate from South Carolina School of Music in 2002. Geoff also has learned a great deal about the construction and setup of classical and flamenco guitars and customer service from Alhambra USA. As the market has led itself to online venues, prior to know Xguitars.com, I have ordered my last three guitars for my students from on line sources. Now, it is with great comfort to know, Xguitars do perform instrument hand selection, detailed test and setup prior to deliver them to their customers while maintaining price competitiveness. I would determine this is a great place to purchase my future guitars.
Good tension good sound
This guitar looks so beautiful and well made. It has amazing sound in terms of tone and texture. Sounds sustain long time. The base tones are loud but it is not overwhelming. I feel this guitar will last long long time because it is so well made.
I have played the guitar for over 35 years, and my experience with XGuitars.com and Geoff has been the best I have experienced to date. Why? Responsive, fast, quality products, easy returns, customer friendly. Highly recommended!
Easy, simple tuner without unwanted buzzes.
Good sound good Alhambra 4p
Though I could have purchased my guitar from any of the other larger well known internet music sites, I purchased my Kremona F65CW Fiesta Spruce top from XGuitars for the following reasons.
1. I wrote to Geoff a few times asking for his opinions and he always wrote back with insightful comments.
2. He stated that he would provide a professional guitar setup. Something that I doubted I would get from any of the other internet sites.
Shortly after ordering my guitar I received an email confirmation. A couple of days later, I received another email stating the guitar had been shipped and I was provided a UPS tracking number.
After UPS delivered the guitar on time, I was impressed to see how well the guitar was packed in its shipping box.
My Kremona F65CW Fiesta is a pleasure to play and I would definitely recommend XGuitars to anyone that is in search of a new guitar.
For the past 17 years, I have been playing a low end student nylon string guitar. This spring, I decided to treat myself and purchase a new guitar.
After quite a bit of research I decided on the Kremona F65CW Fiesta with spruce top. I made the order on XGuitars and within a week, I received my new guitar.
The guitar was carefully packed for shipping. I opened the Kremona case and my jaw dropped when I saw this beauty.
I play fingerstyle pieces that range from blues to original pieces by Indie writers. I do not play classical music.
With that in mind, I immediately sat down with my new guitar and started playing my favorite pieces. I was struck with the richer sounds and tones my Kremona had over my older guitar.
I love this guitar and can see spending countless hours playing it.
If you are in search of a unique guitar, you can’t go wrong with the Kremona brand nor with XGuitars.
the guitar is very good thanks
Received order promptly and in perfect condition. I will continue to make my guitar purchases from X Guitars!
The Alhambra is bright and loud. The ported slots allow you as the listener to hear yourself projected. I order this guitar but ended up returning. Not because I didn't like it, I did not look to see the neck shape. It is a D shape and I am used to C shaped necks. Geoff was very professional and courteous the whole way. I am a student comparing a couple guitars and he was understanding of that, even when I had to return. Overall, Xgiutars is an amazing company to deal with. I will always go to them first!
You can see my review of the Alhambra 5P PT here. I am comparing it to my cheap Yamaha CGX102.
The craftsmanship is impeccable. This guitar projects it's sound well and the quality of it's sound is rich and clear. This makes it easier to make your dynamics and ornamentation stand out. I've had mine for over three years and it's sound has matured and is very pleasing to the ear.
The ordering process was easy and it was shipped on time. The packaging was appropriate and arrived unscathed. I did find the A(fifth) string had a slight buzz due to the nut cut just a little deep on that string. I was able to easily correct it. In general, I found the XGuitar staff responsive and helpful.
I like the guitar very much and have heard many positive comments. Transaction was impeccable. But why ask me for my opinion more than 2000 days after my purchase??
This guitar featured bright sound, comfortable actions and excellent electronics. Disclaimer: I am not a Flamenco player, but I needed a brighter nylon tone and thinner body for some of my country/pop music.
I am surprised that the guitar still carries decent sustain despite the body depth being thin. Plugged, the sound is beautiful: I think it has something to do with the Fishman Pro Blend pickup. More accurately, it is a pickup-mic combined system that has minimum feedback as well as a close-to-true sound. The string actions were set lower than a standard classical guitar. The back and sides are solid cypress. I think the bright tone is partly due to the cypress. BTW: it also smells great for some reason. The guitar comes with a humicase that makes easy to maintain the humidity in-case. The scale length is 648mm, 2mm shorter than the standard 650mm, but I did not feel much of the difference. The pickguard is attached to the top. Do not peel it off because that might damage the top. The overall build quality is pretty good.
I purchased this guitar from Geoff in early 2018 and absolutely loved it. The play ability and sound are amazing. Sadly the guitar was stolen but I intend to purchase another one as soon as possible. Geoff and Xguitars are very professional and alwqays offer the best service and prices. They are highly recommended for all your classical guitar needs.
I bought the Linea Spruce Top for my son, who is an advanced player, two years ago. The guitar is beautifully crafted and the setup was perfect from the start. The spruce tone is super clear and has exceptional color variations along the strings. The volume was great to begin with but has opened up even more with continuous playing. My son has performed in several ensembles and the Linea can be heard clearly along the other guitars. He has also played in several master classes and the instructors are always impressed by his guitar. I believe for the price range you will not find a better classical guitar! Geoff has been a pleasure to work with. This was the second guitar I purchased from him, and both times he communicated clearly about the delivery and checked to make sure we received the guitars in perfect condition. I highly recommend him for your guitar needs.
The Alhambra Linea Profesional (cedar) arrived intact - it was well packed and secure. It was immediately obvious that the guitar had a bigger sound than my other two guitars. As I have played it over the past two weeks, its tone is opening up as well, and I am sure I will enjoy playing the guitar for years to come.
I chose the VGV branded case. I'm glad I upgraded - it is a very attractive case.
Geoff is very knowledgeable and helpful. He is clearly committed to customer satisfaction. Thank you.
I love this guitar,I have many classical guitars including a 40 year old delpila but this guitar is just wonderful and has a quality all its own.
Won this on a ebay at a price that is to low to mention.
Xguitars shipping was fast and contact was perfect.
Thanks again for such a great deal of a guitar.
I had higher hopes for this guitar. The sound is very pronounced, (clear voice) however I don't feel it is has a very rich or full sound.
Fantastic customer service . Great guitar support - I use it every day. Cork pads had come somewhat loose, and company sent me new ones. Work perfectly. Recommended.
As far as a guitar, this is a wonderful instrument. With the Sagework Umbra and a quality set of strings, and oh, a capo, I can sit for hours and get lost in song. The service that Xguitars offered was also first class. Shipping, pricing, support over the phone. No issues. Buy with confidence.
Received guitar as described. Beautiful Cordoba Hauser spruce top classical guitar. Fast service. Excellent communication.
XGuitars had exactly the strings I was looking for at a very competitive price and I received them within a matter of days.
I purchased this Guitar from Geoff about a year ago and can honestly say that it has surpassed all expectations for a conservatory Guitar. The construction is sound with no flaws and the sound quality rivals many higher priced guitars. I have owned many different guitars including Cordoba, Kremona and Ramirez and can honestly say that Alhambra has the highest quality. These guitars are designed to be played. I also appreciate the attention to detail that Geoff gives his customers and products and would recommend anyone looking for a quality instrument, to contact Xguitars for their next purchase.
A great selection of strings at a good price. Dependable fast delivery. Xguitars is my only source for strings.
Great product, great price, fast shipping.
The guitar is beautiful look, fantastic sound and balance. I’m very grateful and appreciate for all the help from Geoff. He helping me, spend time to send me the video link about idea spruce and cedar sound also He setup the action was perfect on my guitar. The shipping was fast and arrived in perfect condition. I would highly recommend Xguitar for everyone. Many thanks.
