A beautiful classical guitar with an internal microphone, undersaddle pickup, onboard EQ, and cutaway. The Alhambra 5P improves upon the 4P by adding an ebony bar embedded in the neck. This bar helps keep the neck straight as it ages and also slightly boosts the sustain. The 5P CW E2 has the great sound of an Alhambra with the ability to amplify. The neck is 2mm less wide than standard, making it a bit easier to play.
Made from great quality woods, Red Cedar for the top and laminated Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, the first thing calling your attention is the light weight. That is the kind of instrument that will ring and vibrate. A beautiful and high quality Ebony is used for the fingerboard. As you turn the guitar you notice that the neck is reinforced with an ebony strip instead of truss rod. Compacter and lighter, it conducts vibrations much better to the body and allows to guitar to fully vibrate from the head to bottom of the body. You really feel it as you strum the first chords.
The Alhambra 5P CW E2 is set up with an action height that is approximately 0.5mm lower than a standard classical guitar's action.

Having Recently Purchased, Played And Scrutinized This Instrument I Can Say This Is A Beautifully Designed And Constructed Guitar. There Is Nothing That Says "Cheap" Or "Sloppy" Or "This Could Have Been Done Better."
The Website Pictures, Of This Particular Guitar, While Good, Are Only A Preview Of What A Hands-on Experience Will Reveal. The Close-up Of The Cutaway And Heel Is A Good Example. The Very Nice Joinery Here Is Seamless. You Cannot Feel The Connection And That High Standard Of Quality Is Not Diminished Anywhere On The Guitar.
The Sound Of The Guitar Is Well Balanced , The String Set-up (Nut Height , Saddle Height ) Is Flawless And The Intonation Even At The 19th Fret (!) Is Very, Very Good. For A Fixed Bridge Without A Compensated Saddle This Is Remarkable.
I May Be Getting Too Technical Now So Let Me Finish By Saying This Is A MERCEDES Of A Guitar At A CHEVROLET Price.
