Medley of "Torija" (F.M. Torroba) / "Prelude, Fugue and Allegro" (J.S. Bach) / "Sounds of Bells" (J. Pernambuco) played by David Stevenson

Well-balanced bass, mid-range and treble and an incredible sound projection, the Alhambra 10 Premier is a modern guitar aimed at today's guitarist.  With the 10 Premier model, the Alhambra guitar craftsmen have applied the experience accumulated over the years in the development of classic guitars. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)

From the model 8P to the 11P, the instruments are built by a small group of artisans where, progressively, each model acquires more time of elaboration, design, and detail.  The model 10 Premier has a bracing design that maximizes its volume and projection.

This guitar has a perfect string height: high enough to contribute to the sound, but at the same time with just the right height to be extremely comfortable.  The 10 Premier is a guitar with incredible sound projection and well-balanced bass, mid, and treble tones. The Alhambra 10 Premier is truly a modern guitar designed for today's guitarist.


The model 10 Premier by Alhambra Guitars is designed and crafted with details that increase the performance of this instrument.  The finishes of this model show an important craftwork and a very refined image.

Twelve holes in the bridge, bone nut and saddle, very efficient machine heads, and a double line of green in the profiles provide the model 10 Premier aesthetic qualities, but at the same time comfort and good sound.

A design with the neck called "ergoneck", which contributes the comfort of the guitarist, and where the fingerboard is extended by the mouth of the soundboard to introduce the 20th fret: a design requested by the guitarists and the compositions of today.

It is difficult to imagine all the possibilities offered by this instrument, where the sound quality of the first string is especially noteworthy.  The Alhambra 10 Premier is definitely, a modern guitar to respond to the highest demands of today's guitarist.

IMPORTANT: This guitar features a 12-hole bridge.  This design puts the strings at a higher angle relative to the saddle, allowing a greater transfer of energy into the top of the guitar at the saddle.  This gives this guitar extra volume and resonance.  It is very important that the strings are tied properly to prevent slipping.  For instructions on how to tie the strings, please see the video below:

There is an easier way to tie the knot in the following video, but the little holes in that guitar are different, so when she mentions which one to put it in first, just do the opposite. The summary of that is that the string should be coming out of the lowest hole on it's way toward the headstock:

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:

Carbon: My favorite strings of all I've tried are Savarez Alliance set 540J. These strings provide great volume and resonance.  Being Carbon, they are a bit thinner in diameter than nylon strings. The tone is brighter and not as mellow as nylon strings. If you want a softer sound, nylon may suit you better.

Nylon: For nylon strings, I really like Savarez Corum New Cristal set 500CJ stings.  They provide a nice round tone, good volume, and a comfortable feel.

If you would like to have strings installed other than the ones that come with your guitar, you can add the Strings Installation Service to your order.

Beautiful Instrument

The Alhambra 10 Premier is an incredible guitar - amazingly beautiful in sound and appearance, and impeccably set up (by Geoff)!
Thanks so much for your efforts, Geoff!

John T. (Lakeville, US)
Excellent sound

The quality of the sound is everything I hoped for, especially in the low range. This guitar is beautiful. The strings are set a little higher than I expected, making some chords a little harder to play, but I think I can overcome this in time.

Al N. (Buena Park, US)

This is my second guitar from Geoff. All I can say is the Alhambra 10 P is a MAGNIFICENT instrument and the service from Geoff is outstanding.

Andrei K. (West Boylston, US)
It’s a beauty!

This guitar (Alhambra 10P) is, first of all, a marvelous piece of craftsmanship! Then, the playability and the set up by Geoff and “X guitars” are right on - just simply as it was requested - the strings, action, etc.! I even wanted a sound pick-up installed - there was no problem, and it works great. This guitar is the last one I am ever going to get (due to its quality and for it being the ultimate concert instrument that I needed). Overall, I am very satisfied with the quality of the product and service. What I appreciate the most, however, is Geoff’s ability to work with the client and meet his/her needs at the most professional level. This kind of prompt interaction and adaptability speaks volume to the quality of service that “X-Guitars” provide. Thank you!
