The Alhambra 7FC is a white flamenco guitar with a beautiful solid cypress back and sides. Tremendous, genuine, brilliant and percussive are some of the adjectives that define the 7Fc. An instrument with an impressive flamenco sound, constant tone and definition in the melody. It is also fully balanced, both in power as well as in the relation between bass and treble.
The 7Fc is an instrument of the line of conservatory, with a low level of hardness and the quality that guarantees Manufacturas Alhambra. A very comfortable white flamenco guitar which will meet the demands of a flamenco interpreter.
EBONY REINFORCEMENT ON NECK
Besides the solid cypress back and sides and top solid spruce German, this guitar incorporates ebony on the fingerboard, gold plated machine heads and ebony reinforcement on the neck. In the process of making the Alhambra guitars, the ebony reinforcement is placed inside the neck and it is not visible at simple sight. In order to see the ebony piece, the saddle must be removed. The reinforcement is located just under the fingerboard.
AN EXTRA SADDLE
Each guitar player has a way of playing, which means that within the same model there will be variations. In this case, it is possible to change the action of the strings by changing the saddle bone. The model 7 Fc comes with two saddles with different height, to get a lower or higher action, already adapted to the guitar. A guitar designed to generate the correct buzzing when the guitar player requires it and to allow the greater comfort in the interpretation. Both, the saddle and the nut are made of melamine, this material is highly conductive of the sound and it helps to balance the sound in the instrument.

This is my first flamenco guitar with solid cypress back and sides and spruce top. I've found this guitar to be everything I was expecting on a flamenco guitar. The looks, the smell, the playability that allows you to play other style than flamenco and the amazing sound of this guitar makes it the best price-quality flamenco guitar you will ever find. I would like to thank Geoff for providing me the best customer service, he is a great person to deal with. I would highly recommend the Alhambra 7 Fc and XGuitars customer service.
