The Alhambra 7FC Blanca Flamenco Guitar 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. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)
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.

Back/Sides: Solid Cypress
Neck: Mahogany reinforced with Ebony
Scale Length: 650mm

For an improved sound: This guitar comes from Alhambra with D'Addario EXP44 Extra-Hard Tension strings installed.

At first, I was hesitant for this order. I was looking for a flamenco guitar at different other websites. It was going to be my first flamenco guitar to be purchased online, so I did a little research and found out about Alhambra brands by recommendations from various artist and bloggers. It was either this one or a Córdoba.
I must say I’m happy with my choice, the guitar feels and sounds more for the current price. Man, solid spruce and solid cypress for the price is a good value. Overall, the guitar is solid(no pun). No high end cosmetics to raise the price, but the woods and construction is superb. The guitar has great response when I play the rasgueos and golpes. The neck is slightly beefy but comfy too. The action is slight higher for a flamenco guitar, but it feels right. The guitar was well secure and protected when it arrived. If I ever decide to get higher end Alhambra. I would definitely consider buying it here first. Thank you for the great service.
This is the second time i order Alhambra Flamenco Guitar from xguitars.com. In both times I had very good experience with shipping, packaging, quality and fast response. Thank you very much - looking to do more business with you.
i recommend any one to deal with x guitars online shop this is my second guitar i bought from them and the shipping and packing was professional ilike the note that sent with the guitar and how they treat their customer i will be glad to work with them again in future
I bought the Alhambra 7Fc from XGuitars in October 2018. I must say that the buying experience and delivery were exceptional. Geoff was very professional, communicated very well and delivered the product in prestine condition and on time. He communicated updates and followed up promptly to all my questions. It was packed very well and the case that came with it is very sturdy. Overall it was a great experience.
The guitar is another thing all together. It sounds amazing sound and the playability is astounding. The bass strings vibrate through the whole guitar body. The neck and action is excellent for flamenco and it comes with an extra saddle for higher action.
As the description states, this guitar sounds great with Savarez Alliance 540J HT classic. I have tried many strings from Savarez and LaBella but this set sounds the best.
I cannot emphasize how amazing this guitar is and has been. Practicing on it is a joy. I’m waiting to improve my level and my next guitar will surely be from XGuitars. Thanks Geoff for an amazing store and professional service!
I highly recommend recommend Xguitars and this Alhambra 7Fc.
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.
