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 classical guitar is very similar to the Alhambra 8p, but in a deeper body to give it an even fuller sound. Alhambra model 9p is built by a smaller, more experienced team at the Alhambra facility. It features a lighter, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and a bridge-like cross bracing. All of these factors work together to give this guitar a very beautiful, loud, and refined sound. The 9P features a bridge-shaped cross bracing pattern to give the top maximum volume and projection.
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 so 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.)
