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.

The Alhambra 9P CW E8 Classical Guitar is a cutaway / electronics version of Alhambra's model 9P. 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 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 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.)
The Alhambra 9P CW E8 is set up with an action height that is approximately 0.5mm lower than a standard classical guitar's action. It includes an extra saddle that can be used to raise the action if desired.

I recently purchased an Alhambra 9p cw e8 from XGuitars. The guitar is perfect and customer service was second to none. I subsequently purchased strings and a couple of guitar supports and received the same great service. Thank you Geoff and everyone at XGuitars. I will be back.
Very happy with the guitar, set up and service I received. Thanks for a great instrument.
I received the Alhambra 9P CW in the well packaged container. The guitar exceeds my original expectations in its' beauty and it's performance. Your attention to the final details on the guitar shows your exemplary luthier skills. Thanks for your hard work in overcoming the difficulties of these days to make my purchase with you a pleasant one. It was nice doing business with you and will continue in the near future.
I would have given a 5 stars if the price is little cheaper. It is a very expensive guitar even it’s made in Spain. Sounds good for a cut away and small body. Love it.
Another great guitar I just bought after the professional linea last year! Sounds super nice when I plugged it in my Marshals amp. I’m so addicted to Alhambra, play for hours didn’t feel a bit tiring from fingers or wrist
