Classical Guitar Strings
I ordered my husband a classical guitar brace and other accessories for Christmas. Not only was my order taken care but when there was a small issue it was handled immediately. I so much appreciate a business other than than Amazonthat takes care of our guitar needs and this company could not be any more stellar in their service and quality. Very impressed.
The Alhambra Linea Classical guitar has a beautiful, rich sound. No issues with delivery to Canada -Instrument arrived in perfect condition.
I've owned lots of guitars, which also means I've owned cases galore. This model is one of the nicest, ranking with the cases Collings uses. The advantages? It's an attractive brown color. It's light. It has a cool hygrometer inside to help you maintain your guitar. The case seals tightly, which is important so that maintaining humidification isn't an indoor-outdoor activity. Drawbacks? The brown surface material scuffs fairly easily, closing the case requires some attention to lining up the latches precisely, and the handle somewhat stylishly lies close to the case. The net? I'm delighted with the case, particularly the combination of light weight, sturdy design, and the hygrometer. I would buy another for another classical guitar perfectly happily and in preference to a standard case. And for what it's worth, the case fits the Alhambra Linea Professional perfectly.
I have an De Oro Classical Support two years ago or so. It is the only support that works for me. I use it in practice and concerts without any problems. Originally I was going to order this one as a gift for my guitar teacher. But the gold frame sent to me is so attractive I decided to use it for myself. It is even better than the black frame one I had before in terms of stability, durability. It stays on even better and is so attractive. Now I have to order another one for my teacher.
I'm very happy with this support! It is everything the reviews claimed. Easy to install, and fits my playing style perfectly. This product is a game changer. Thanks for the speedy delivery too. I would recommend this support to any guitarist regardless of what level you're at.
First, this guitar is a complete joy. The combination of playability and projection is exact what I was hoping to achieve. I've been playing guitars for more than 50 years, classical for about a decade. I had stopped because of arthritis in my thumb, but this Fall I picked my old classical guitar up again and began to play. Music felt too important, so I got back to practicing, rebuilt my callouses, and after a few months, decided it was time to be serious and get a guitar with which I could perform and practice with pleasure. I contacted Geoff, had an appointment at his house, drove to Asheville, and tried out six different guitars of about the same price stratum. Cedar vs spruce? Preferred cedar. When I arrived, I knew I was going to buy one of the Ramirez guitars, but playing in Geoff's living room, the Alhambra made my fingers feel at home, and the first time I played it my wife, who was doing video games on her phone, suddenly sat up and said, "That's different!" It was. And is. I can very highly recommend both the Linea Professional (which is beautifully constructed as well as very musical), and Geoff and XGuitars. Both first rate all the way.
A trusty place to buy instruments on line. Not only just sell and deliver, Geoff took care of inspection of the guitar, change strings per my request, inspect each note and setting action. Very satisfied. I would buy again and would recommend.
I keep mine with a piece of velcro to keep it hung inside the case on the case.
The Sagework Umbra is my favorite support and these additional sets of magnets are identical to the original set making it easy to use the same support on multiple guitars. This set went on the Ennis I recently bought from XGuitars. The support and magnets work just as well on the unique Ennis body, although they do need to be positioned to avoid the extra bracing.
Great service as always from Geoff and XGuitars.
This is my first flamenco guitar with solid cypress back and sides and spruce top. I've found this guitar to be everything I was expecting on a flamenco guitar. The looks, the smell, the playability that allows you to play other style than flamenco and the amazing sound of this guitar makes it the best price-quality flamenco guitar you will ever find. I would like to thank Geoff for providing me the best customer service, he is a great person to deal with. I would highly recommend the Alhambra 7 Fc and XGuitars customer service.
We are one of the overseas customers and a first-timer buyer in X Guitars. We bought Cordoba Torres Spruce Top Classical Guitar and we are very satisfied with the service during the deal to buy the guitar and Geoff was certainly very patient with every question we asked. Not only the service, but we have also received the guitar safely now and love the guitar as well. We will definitely make our purchase for the next one in X Guitars.
I bought this for my Alhambra 4F Flamenco guitar, and it is without a doubt absolutely convenient. Paired with the Humidipak by D'Addario, this case ensures that my guitar has the perfect humidity conditions.
This is a beautifully crafted guitar that's gorgeous to look at and great to play with rich and interesting tones.
had been looking for a spruce guitar for a while, but hadn't found the right one. I'm glad I waited for this one. I have another luthier built guitar that has slightly faster action than this one but it's not a looker and the tone and intonation aren't as good.
Thanks to Geoff for the great service, attention to detail and care. The guitar arrived in perfect condition, ready to play, no setup was needed.
I own and play a José Ramirez, a top artist, signatured model (1A), signed by Ramirez the Third for 20 years, Recently I have a need to buy another instrument, that is also a classical guitar, but a cut-away with sound pickup, to complement my Jose Ramirez’s.
Geoff recommended the Alhambra 9P CW E8 as it is current model has replaced the E2’s model which is no longer in production by Alhambra.
The guitar was shipped immediately and arrived in perfect condition, very well professionally packed.
Upon holding the instrument, I was so pleased with its look, its spotless finish, feel and workmanship appearance, its careful details, binding, lines, headstock, tuners slots, tuners, rosette, fret installation, body perforation, all mitered lines and joined to their perfection. Just like my Ramirez 1A.
Upon playing the guitar, the sound is amazing, each note feel separate, projecting, coming out of the guitar without much playing effort, the notes are also sweet, nasal ‘spanish’ sound. The three treble strings deliver a tad of natural echoing effect enough that is elegant and defined. I play each note on the fretboard on each string from the first to the 19th fret, no buzz, easy to play as the action is low, so right, and no ‘wolf’ notes (dead) are there to be found. Sign of a perfect guitar. The guitar fretboard is a tad narrower than standard classical and the neck was shaped in a way that helps me even easier to play. (that is also described by Alhambra).
The low set of strings deliver ‘Spanish’ bass sound notes and not over powered the treble sides, both sets are very well balanced.
This guitar delivers musical tones and colors and playability as just does my Ramirez’s. This Alhambra costs a fraction of that of my Ramirez’s
If you are buying a guitar on line, hesitate not to deal with X Guitars as you would have Geoff who would professionally select the right guitar per your needs on your behalf and preps it for you. Geoff goes extra miles get you the right...
I've had mine for yrs it its always worked great. This one I purchased for my brother, he's been thru a few others so I figured he needed one that would last awhile.
Just bought this guitar today. This review is not about the guitar but for the seller. Thanks for your kindness.
The quality of the Kremona Solea is fantastic in this price point, as has been noted with this maker quite frequently. The beautiful all solid woods, cocobolo back & sides, cedar top, has a deep bass response with a relatively bright, projecting top for cedar. Though, the guitar is brand spanking new and will need to be played in for a while before it's settled tonal character is more apparent. If you don't have a ton of money to spend, but can drop just under two grand on a classical guitar, I think this is a great choice worth considering, especially with an expert set up done, it s great way to upgrade from a beginner, student level guitar and start sounding more like the big boys!
Great customer service! Communication was open and proactive and my Kremona Solea guitar arrived well packaged in shipping and in perfect condition, set up just right and ready to play. I'm very happy with the purchase!
The Alhambra F7c Blanca Flamenco Guitar arrived promptly before Christmas and in perfect condition. It was stored, along with documentation, inside its standard supplied case (which as an added touch has 'Alhambra' painted on the outside), and packed with plenty of padding inside a solid cardboard box. I separately ordered a set of Savarez 540R Classical High Tension Strings and arranged by phone with Geoff to have these installed on the guitar along with the lower action Bridge (of the two supplied with the guitar). Geoff also sent the original Extra High Tension strings originally installed by the manufacturer, which gives me the option to install these later for higher volume and longer sustain. The guitar appears well set up and has great sound. As expected, the new strings are still stretching sessions, so frequent retuning is needed, but I am enjoying playing it, as it settles in. It will be housed in an air conditioned home in Louisiana, which is relatively warm and humid, so I will keep it in its case between sessions. Geoff gave helpful personalized service, and I would shop from and recommend xguitars in the future.
I bought an Alhambra 8P and absolutely love it! Geoff answered all of the many questions I had prior to buying the guitar. I narrowed my guitar choice down to 4 guitar models and then based my decision on the sample recordings they have on their website. Nice feature!! Shipping was fast and the guitar was setup nicely. If you're looking for a classical guitar, this is the right place!
The Savarez 540J high tension strings have now replaced my long-time standard D’Addario EJ45C normal tension strings as favorites on my Linea profesional. They produce more vibrant life, volume, rich tone and sustain. Couldn’t be happier ! Thanks Geoff for the recommendation !
Thank you XGuitars for this upgrade case. Wow. The Alhambra 8p fits snuggly and the case is Beautiful, fitting for the 8p. I love it and sincerely recommend this case to anyone buying such an expensive guitar. It's worth it!!!
It arrived in a case impeccably wrapped. Thanks, Geoff and XGuitars! Everything about it is beautiful, the rosette, the finish, the wood grain. At first I was scared to hold it. The strings that come on it are extra high tension, and I'm used to medium, so that took a few hours to get used to. The action may need to be adjusted for me, though I'm adapting quickly. It's a light guitar that sits well (my used La Patrie guitar had a truss bar that I injured my left thumb on.) The 8p has an ergo neck that already makes a difference for me. I've actually played bar chords without pain, though I'm being careful. The sound projects really well; the string tension may be part of that. Tasto and ponticello are beautifully dramatic, which oddly weren't on my La Patrie. This guitar makes me feel ready to tackle tougher pieces again. After years off with a thumb injury, that's a big deal. Highly recommend. I'm a mid-level intermediate player.
I was so scared to spend this kind of money (a lot for me!) online, especially without even trying the guitar. Geoff was fantastic (I do not know him, nor have I ever met him except over the phone to place my order.) He was very helpful, flexible and responsive. He clearly cares about the business. I'm so grateful for XGuitars. The brands, the expedited delivery, and the prices are worth buying here. I looked all over the U.S. and even wrote to a luthier in Spain before deciding to go with XGuitars. Highly recommend. Would shop here again.
My guitar arrived promptly and well packed. The upgraded strings are laced well and sound great. Will purchase from xguitars in the future.
The guitar support works well for me. So far (2 weeks) it has been stable and the suction cups have not failed.
I had done my homework so I knew I wanted a Linea Professional. Geoff was extremely helpful with the decision between spruce and cedar, and very patient. The price was over $500 cheaper than the same instrument at a well known guitar shop on Maple Street in Atlanta (they think Geoff is great too!). The shipment process was fast and easy. The gun arrived in a couple of days and it is fantastic. I will definitely be doing business with xGuitars again. Jim
Good service, good products, good price
