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 has all of the superior qualities of the 8P, but is further enhanced with a special, bridge-like cross bracing and a deeper body. These modifications allow for even more projection of volume and depth of sound. This instrument features very well balanced projection of treble and bass strings, and is also designed for comfort and optimal playability. This instrument is available in both spruce and cedar.
But richness is not the only thing:
- The action is also just perfect: high enough to make the guitar sing but extremely comfortable.
- The sound projection is amazing.
- Basses, mediums and trebles are very well-balanced. You have a full control of the voices and can emphasize whatever voice you want without any struggle, therefore you become the conductor and have a complete orchestra under your fingers.
The Alhambra 9P 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.)

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.

I purchased an Alhambra 9P Classical guitar from XGuitars and the customer service and response could not have been better. Geoff is a very thoughtful and caring person who goes above and beyond the call to make sure his customers are satisfied with their purchase. Geoff takes the worry out of online buying where you can't try out what you're buying first. I would highly recommend XGuitars for anyone contemplating buying a guitar online. No worries with buying online from this guy!
