The Alhambra 5P Classical Guitar is a step up from the 4P model in quality. The ebony bracing in the neck prevents warping, and softwood top is equipped with 7 braces that help improve the resonance of the instrument without sacrificing its lightweight or durability. This bracing includes seven braces and two harmonic bars that contribute to the warm, full-bodied tone. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)

For a better sound:  Alhambra installed D'Addario EXP44 Extra Hard Tension strings on this guitar. We recommend changing the strings to Savarez Alliance 540J, for better resonance, volume, and sustain.  If you would like the strings changed for you, CLICK HERE.

Top: Solid Red Cedar 
Back/Sides: Lam. Rosewood
Neck: Mahogany with Ebony Reinforcement
Fingerboard: Ebony
Scale Length: 650mm
Nut Width: 52mm

Made in Spain

Alhambra Deluxe Soft Case Included

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.

Beautiful guitar

The Alhambra 5P guitar arrived on time in perfect condition in its excellent case. It is a beautiful instrument with a clear, sweet and very audible sound. Playable even for my fumbling fingers as I learn classical style. Thank you for the help you gave me in choosing which instrument to purchase. I am very happy with it and recommend Alhambra and XGuitars to anyone who wants a quality affordable guitar.

Nice service

I reached out to XGuitars because I was finally ready to buy the guitar of my dreams and I was able to get what I needed without problems, even during these pandemic times. The guitar arrived quickly and I am very pleased with the quality and sound. Special thanks to manager Geoff for helping me out with the guitar.
