Every guitar is given 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.)

It was a pleasure working with Geoff and the process of receiving this guitar went very smoothly. I was informed that I would need to wait a few weeks for the guitar to come in stock, as there were none left at the shop, but it was definitely worth the wait. I simply put in a reasonable down payment that was later taken off the price of the guitar so I could hold it. After the guitar arrived at the store, I was contacted and it was shipped after finalizing the order. I received the guitar sooner than expected and I’ve been loving it! I was deciding between a few guitars from Cordoba and a few other luthiers, but Geoff recommended the Alhambra 9P after I mentioned my price range. I upgraded to the nicer TKL case and it looks great with the cedar wood. It’s loud and sounds beautiful. I was also pleasantly surprised with the playability of the guitar with the ergonomic neck. I’m very excited for it to open up as I play. Thanks, Geoff!
I live in Northern Michigan, and there is no place to practice with a high end classical guitar. I am very pleased with my Alhambra 9P; the action is very good, and the tone is wonderful. The guitar can get loud, and it sounds wonderful quiet; and the cedar has a wonderful aroma to it as well. The guitar arrived in perfect condition. It looks regal and splendid; it plays very nice, and it sounds wonderful! To me, it was completely worth the money to purchase this guitar!
This classical guitar is definitely worth the cost. It is an exceptional in appearance, sound quality and playability. I am especially pleased with the design of the neck, which makes playing a delight. I was kept informed during the process and the service was excellent. The guitar came to me in perfect shape. I would definitely use XGuitars again.
What a beautiful guitar! Visually perfect, and the sound is incredible. I'm very happy with my Alhambra 9P, and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again from Xguitars! Geoff provided excellent customer service, and I was very pleased with the whole process.
I purchased the Alhambra 9P guitar online and it arrived promptly via Fedex. It was carefully packed and arrived in perfect condition. I opted for the guitar to be re-strung prior to shipping with the Savarez Alliance - Set 540J - Classical Guitar Strings. The guitar sounds great and I would not hesitate to buy another instrument from Geoff.
