Alhambra 8P guitars and above are built by a smaller, more experienced, team at the Alhambra facility.
Red Western Cedar top is married to High-Grade Solid Indian Rosewood back and sides. The back illustrates perfect bookmatching work. The 8P features a light nitrocellulose lacquer finish allowing the wood to vibrate more freely. Its Western Red Cedar top gives it a nice warm tone quality without sacrificing volume or clarity of tone. All of these factors work together to give this guitar a warm, loud, and refined sound.

NOTE: Due to new U.S. export restrictions, we cannot ship guitars built with rosewood to countries outside of the United States.
Customer review: "Having played the Alhambra 8p for several weeks now I can say that I am extremely impressed with this guitar. The sound is incredibly beautiful and the ability to play the full range of dynamics is fantastic, from the softest notes through the loudest it is truly remarkable. Bars are a simple action to perform as the strings just fold down gently under your fingers to the fretboard, and the guitar itself is absolutely gorgeous to look at. This truly is a very easy and delightful guitar to play." - Rice M., Columbia, SC.
