IMPORTANT: Please follow the instructions in the video below on how to tie the strings on this special bridge. In addition to what is shown in the video, be sure to either tie a knot at the end of each treble string or burn a ball end onto it to prevent slipping. Failure to do this could result in the string slipping and damaging the top of your guitar. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Due to COVID issue, the final delivery of the guitar took a little longer than expected. However, it was well worth the wait! This is my first classical guitar and I could not be more pleased. I own both electric and acoustic guitars, so this was a bit of a stretch for me. From the beautiful resonating sound to it's aesthetically beautiful appearance, this guitar is the total package. Great guitar and great customer service.
I could not be happier so far with my Alhambra 10 Premier.
This is a loud guitar but the tone is warm, the projection broad and powerful and the sustain is, well, long.
I have been all over it with a critical eye and the fit and finish are flawless. The purfling and rosette work are perfect. The tuners are smooth.
I bought the 10 Premier on a leap of faith, sight unseen. As far as I can tell it's a new soundboard bracing design for Alhambra and there aren't any dealers nearby nor many independent reviews. My leap had a very soft landing.
Very happy with it and with Geoff at XGuitars!
