The Alhambra 9P CW E8 Classical Guitar is a handmade Spanish guitar with cutaway & electronics. It is a beautiful, all solid, concert-quality classical guitar. It is beautifully crafted, has a wonderful tone, is very loud, and is very playable. This is an excellent choice for the serious guitar player. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)
This B-Stock guitar is a great guitar, with a great sound and very playable. It is B-Stock because the fret dots are not perfectly aligned, as shown in the photos above.
This guitar is very similar to the Alhambra 8p, but in a deeper body to give it an even fuller sound. It is built by a smaller, more experienced team at the Alhambra facility. It features a lighter, nitrocellulose lacquer finish and a bridge-like cross bracing. All of these factors work together to give this guitar a very beautiful, loud, and refined sound.
The Alhambra 9P CW E8 is set up with an action height that is lower than a standard classical guitar's action. It includes an extra saddle that can be used to raise the action if desired.
For a better sound: Alhambra installs D'Addario EXP44 Extra Hard Tension strings on this guitar. These D'Addario strings do not allow this guitar to live up to its full potential. When the time comes to change strings, XGuitars recommends Savarez Alliance 540J strings. They will give this guitar clearer trebles and better resonance, volume, & sustain.
