Alhambra 5P Senorita 636mm Scale - 7/8 Size Classical Guitar


To purchase, please contact us at or 828-417-9515

The Alhambra 5P Señorita Classical Guitar has all of the excellent sound qualities of the traditional 5P model, but the scale length of the neck has been shortened (thus reducing the spacing of the frets) to accommodate a smaller hand size. This instrument also has an ebony reinforced cedar neck, and has a rosewood laminate on the interior. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)

Recommended Strings: This guitar comes with D'Addario EXP44 Extra Hard Tension strings installed.  These are not bad strings, but don't allow the guitar to live up to its full potential.  I recommend the following strings for this guitar:

Carbon: My favorite strings of all I've tried are Savarez Alliance set 540J. These strings provide great volume and resonance.  Being Carbon, they are a bit thinner in diameter than nylon strings. The tone is brighter and not as mellow as nylon strings. If you want a softer sound, nylon may suit you better.

Nylon: For nylon strings, I really like Savarez Corum New Cristal set 500CJ stings.  They provide a nice round tone, good volume, and a comfortable feel.

If you would like to have strings installed other than the ones that come with your guitar, you can add the Strings Installation Service to your order.

Marcie's review of Alhambra Señorita 5P

I have not yet fallen in love with my Señorita, but my guitar teacher encouraged me to give her time. My main objection is the absence of full bass resonance. I don't know if that is a function of the smaller size, the newness of the guitar, or something else. The treble sound is very sweet and clear. I miss the fuller bass sound of my full-size classical guitars. My teacher said if I play it a lot I might notice an improvement in the bass sound. How long can I keep the guitar and still get a full refund?

Sigrid L.C. (Groton, US)
Rich, resonate sound

I was very impressed with the service and the guitar and case I ordered. When I placed the order for the ⅞ Senorita size I mistakenly ordered a full size case. They emailed me and asked me if I really meant to order the full size and gave a recommendation for the appropriate size. When I verified my error they immediately refunded the difference of cost for the smaller size case. I am learning to play classical guitar in my retirement and I really love the sound quality.
