Before shipping, every guitar is given a thorough check including playing through every note, adjusting saddle & nut heights, checking neck relief, fret ends, tuning mechanisms, and finish. You can rest assured that your guitar will be flawless.
The Alhambra 9P CW E2 is a cutaway / electronics version of Alhambra's model 9P. It is a beautiful, all solid, concert-quality classical guitar. It is beautifully crafted, has a wonderful tone, is very loud, and is very playable. This is an excellent choice for the serious guitar player.
This guitar is very similar to the Alhambra 8p, but in a deeper body to give it an even fuller sound. It is built by a smaller, more experienced team at the Alhambra facility. It features a lighter, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and a bridge-like cross bracing. All of these factors work together to give this guitar a very beautiful, loud, and refined sound.
The Alhambra 9P CW E2 features Alhambra's ErgoNeck. The ErgoNeck is the result of the continuous research developed by Alhambra Manufactures to improve the ergonomics of the neck. Thus, we can favor the position of the left hand. Due to its asymmetric shape, the ErgoNeck can be adapted in a more natural way to the guitarist. (See illustration above.)
The Alhambra 9P CW E2 is set up with an action height that is approximately 0.5mm lower than a standard classical guitar's action. It includes an extra saddle that can be used to raise the action if desired.

For an improved sound: We have found that Savarez Alliance 540J Hard Tension strings give Alhambra guitars much better tone, resonance, volume, and sustain than the stock strings installed on this guitar. If you would like to have the strings on your guitar replaced with Savarez Alliance 540J, please CLICK HERE.
Due to new U.S. export restrictions, we cannot ship guitars built with rosewood to countries outside of the United States.

Geoff was extremely helpful with my recent purchase of an Alhambra 9P CW E. The guitar arrived in less than two days. It was in perfect condition with perfect action set up. The guitar plays well and sounds great. I would highly recommend XGuitars to other guitarists.
