Every guitar is given a professional setup and a thorough 19-point inspection including playing through every note, adjusting saddle & nut heights, checking neck relief, fret ends, tuning mechanisms, finish, and more. You can rest assured that your guitar will be flawless or we'll replace it or refund it and cover all shipping charges. Also, all guitars at XGuitars are kept at the perfect humidity and temperature to prevent hidden cracks, sharp frets, warped necks, etc.

The Alhambra 9P Classical Guitar 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. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)
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.)

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:

Discovering XGuitars and Geoffry was a true blessing. I was looking for a new upgraded classical guitar and found this wonderful site. The website is Lefty friendly and beautifully constructed. Well organized and very thorough, I'm still discovering enlightening parts. Not too mention the amazing photography. Geoff was very patient and helpful in my trying to decide on a new model guitar. As a Lefty, it's not often I have multiple models to choose from. XGuitars seems to have this covered. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and with XGuitars. Don't hesitate to use XGuitars for anything Classical Guitar. Thanks Geoff - Steven Brown, Catonsville, MD.
