The Alhambra Linea Profesional Cedar Top Classical Guitar is absolutely the best Spanish guitar in its price range. It has superb volume and projection, with strong basses and clear trebles. Due to an innovative bracing pattern, it has better clarity and projection than most cedar top guitars. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)
With deluxe features, solid-top construction and enormous performance features including a surprisingly remarkable projection and clarity, the Linea Profesional is a classical guitar that is designed to bring your music center stage. This guitar will always be ready for the demands of any performance situation. The Linea Profesional is available in solid cedar top with rosewood back and sides that produce warmness, richness, clarity, and perfection to any musical piece. The neck is constructed by the Alhambra luthiers to satisfy the demands of any player; it offers great feel and playability. In addition, this guitar presents excellent traits expected from any Alhambra guitar that include beautiful hand-made rosette, bone nut and bridge saddle, and very elegant tuners.
Alhambra includes an extra saddle with this guitar. It is a taller saddle, giving you the option to adjust the action height but still keep the original saddle as a backup.
The Alhambra Linea Profesional 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.)
Top: Solid Red Canadian Cedar - (German spruce top available)
Back/Sides: Solid Indian Rosewood
Neck: Spanish Cedar with Ebony Reinforcement
Saddle & Nut: Bone (Extra saddle included)
Finish (top): Nitrocellulose Lacquer (allowing the top to resonate freely)
Finish (back & sides): Polyurethane (provides improved durability)
Made in Spain
For an improved sound: This guitar comes from Alhambra with D'Addario EXP44 Extra-Hard Tension strings installed. We have found that Savarez Alliance 540J Hard Tension strings give Alhambra guitars better tone, resonance, volume, and sustain.

Xguitars sent me a great guitar that exceeded all my expectations. I would recommend the Alhambra Linea Professional cedar top to anyone looking a great guitar in this price range. A special thanks to Geoff for being so kind and helpful in my decision. This is a great place to buy a classical guitar, especially this model it is beautiful sounding solid construction and great sustain. I have changed the strings to Savarez but I haven't had to change anything else the action and setup was perfect. I love this guitar. Thank you Geoff I would recommend Xguitars to anyone.
I couldn’t be happier with my new Alhambra Linea Professional Cedar guitar. It is both beautiful to look at and sounds fabulous. To my ear, it has a very warm and rich tone, great balance between the basses and trebles, and projects extremely well. I had been playing a Cordoba C5, which is a very nice guitar for starting out, but I was looking to upgrade to a better instrument. The Alhambra Linea Professional was perfect for me, a great combination of value and quality. I have found its ErgoNeck design to be a real benefit for me as well as I have somewhat small hands. I think the design of the neck adds to the guitar’s comfort for me. This is just a fabulous instrument. A really great value.
I also couldn’t be happier with my experience with XGuitars. I traveled to Asheville and played several guitars (in Geoff’s living room) before settling on the Alhambra. Geoff couldn’t have been more accommodating. To go with my new guitar, I purchased the VGV brown hardshell case with integral hygrometer. It’s a beautiful case, and I am very happy with it as well.
Since I brought home my new guitar, I’ve been playing it constantly. It has been a real pleasure. It’s all that I hoped it would be.
After becoming acquainted with the guitar over the course of two weeks, I can confidently say this is the best guitar I have owned. The craftsmanship is beautiful, the sound is warm but at the same time is has great projection. I also quite like the feel of the ErgoNeck. It makes playing the guitar more comfortable. I am sure the instrument is going to mature well and provide a lifetime of enjoyment. I am also very impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail of Geoff Ferdon and his company XGuitars. The guitar came very well packed, was setup perfectly, and was delivered without a flaw on it. He has definitely earned my business.
The Alhambra Linea Classical guitar has a beautiful, rich sound. No issues with delivery to Canada -Instrument arrived in perfect condition.
First, this guitar is a complete joy. The combination of playability and projection is exact what I was hoping to achieve. I've been playing guitars for more than 50 years, classical for about a decade. I had stopped because of arthritis in my thumb, but this Fall I picked my old classical guitar up again and began to play. Music felt too important, so I got back to practicing, rebuilt my callouses, and after a few months, decided it was time to be serious and get a guitar with which I could perform and practice with pleasure. I contacted Geoff, had an appointment at his house, drove to Asheville, and tried out six different guitars of about the same price stratum. Cedar vs spruce? Preferred cedar. When I arrived, I knew I was going to buy one of the Ramirez guitars, but playing in Geoff's living room, the Alhambra made my fingers feel at home, and the first time I played it my wife, who was doing video games on her phone, suddenly sat up and said, "That's different!" It was. And is. I can very highly recommend both the Linea Professional (which is beautifully constructed as well as very musical), and Geoff and XGuitars. Both first rate all the way.
