THE ALHAMBRA PREMIERE PRO MADAGASCAR
Alhambra Guitar Premier Pro Madagascar: beauty, innovation and tradition aimed at the most demanding guitarist. The Premier Pro Madagascar model is a guitar that offers a powerful sound, full of nuances. A comfortable instrument that provides security to the interpreter.
This guitar is a clear example and a result of the success of the investment in research and development that has been carried out by Alhambra Guitars in the last years. One of the results of this firm commitment by Alhambra is this innovative guitar with excellent aesthetics.
Apart from its excellent quality-price ratios, it is important to mention the undeniable beauty of the instrument in which the best quality of wood has been used, including the wonderful Madagascar, which gives character and aesthetic distinction.
HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS AND FINISHES
In addition to the use of solid Madagascar in the back and sides, a high-quality cedar top, a Schaller Grand Tune Classic Hauser machine heads and bone in the saddle and saddle were used to create this instrument.
The finish of the Premier Pro Madagascar model has been made in gloss, using nitrocellulose lacquer varnish for the top. The varnish called Laca nitro (nitrocellulose lacquer) is a finish that offers greater flexibility and therefore, greater capacity of vibration to the top. What contributes directly to the sound of the guitar.
This model also incorporates a twelve-hole bridge. A bridge design where the strings are easier to place, since the double hole makes the string is held by itself.
NEW DESIGN IN THE BRACING
Without any doubt, it is a model with a new and modern spirit that presents a plus for that guitarist who wants to play and enjoy it. Proof of this is the design of its bracing. The layout of the bracing contributes to satisfy the demands of the guitarists of today in terms of sound, but always maintaining the tradition of the Spanish guitar.
THE ART OF BEING ABLE TO SATISFY THE DEMANDS OF THE GUITARIST
When you have this instrument in your hands, the first sensation is security. Security of being able to press a rested stroke note, putting the guitar to the limit and that the result is a clean and quality sound.
A guitar with a reduced level of hardness and a lot of comfort. A guitar that certainly meets the demands of a guitarist who is looking for an instrument focused on the professional of the noble art of the guitar.

IMPORTANT: Please follow the instructions in the video below on how to tie the strings on this special bridge. In addition to what is shown in the video, be sure to either tie a knot at the end of each treble string or burn a ball end onto it to prevent slipping. Failure to do this could result in the string slipping and damaging the top of your guitar. If you have any questions, please contact us.

This is my first Alhambra guitar, and I am quite pleased with it. I could barely put it down long enough to write this review.
It is a very well-made instrument - beautiful woods and fine workmanship all over. The finish on the body is quite glossy. The cedar top is also glossy but slightly less so than the body and sides. The fret work is excellent, and the guitar came set up properly and plays perfectly right out of the case.
I love how well-balanced this guitar is. With some guitars the bass strings dominate, drowning out the treble strings. This guitar is completely balanced across all strings. The bass is deep and warm, and the trebles ring out clearly and don't get lost. All strings have seemingly endless sustain. To my ear the overall tone of the guitar is very warm, with great projection and sweet punchy trebles that refuse to be drowned out.
Thanks again to Geoff!
Well made guitar!
Visually it is very beautiful.
Its tone/voicing is very pleasing to the ear.
The guitar is a little heavier compared to our other guitars which most likely adds to the prolonged sustain.
Lastly Geoff was very helpful, for which I was able to avail of his professional opinion on the various guitars I'm interested in before making my choice.
I have bought many other classical guitars previously, this is the first time I have purchased the Alhambra brand. The guitar is very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. When I received it and played it for the first time, the sound was immaculate.
Before I bought this, I have talked to Geoff and he is very professional, honest, and has a great knowledge of guitars. Overall, I’m very pleased and happy with this guitar.
Thank you so much Geoff.
