Also, all guitars at XGuitars are kept at the perfect humidity and temperature to prevent hidden cracks, sharp frets, warped necks, etc.


The Mengual y Margarit Serie C Classical Guitar is a truly world-class concert instrument. It's tone is absolutely beautiful, with fluid and piano-like tone. This guitar is shockingly loud, with very strong, clear basses. It is built in a very small workshop that is its own independent operation from the rest of the Alhambra facility. In this workshop, master luthiers Javier Mengual and José Margarít build this guitar from start to finish with the utmost care and artistry. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)

The Mengual y Margarit Serie C classical guitar has thicker sides and back (3mm vs 2mm), giving it more volume and sustain. Because of this, it is slightly heavier than a standard guitar. The top is thinner than standard, giving it very powerful volume and projection. The Serie C differs from the Serie NT only in that it uses a Lattice bracing pattern, giving it it's particular tonal qualities.

The Alhambra Mengual y Margarit Serie C 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.)
