Every guitar is given a professional setup and 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.

IMPORTANTThis case is only available with the purchase of a guitar.  If you order this case without a guitar, your order will be automatically cancelled and refunded. (This case was formerly known as the B4166/BL.)

With an arch top and an arch back and our custom-ordered reinforcements by TKL, this This case provides superb protection for your guitar.

This case is designed specifically to be an exact fit for Alhambra classical guitars, but it is superb for all standard size classical guitars from any brand.

We at XGuitars worked with TKL to build a case based on the popular TKL 9100, but that is much more protective of your guitar. It is officially designated the C0041/BLK. In addition to the double arch, it features substantially augmented padding to protect the top and the back of the guitar, as shown in the photographs. To compensate for this padding, the case is deeper than the standard TKL 8800 or 9100. Not only does this protect the top and back of the guitar, but it adds protection for the corners of the guitar by moving them away from the corners of the case.

Whether your case may be dropped on a corner, dropped flat, or subjected to some sort of crushing force, this case will give your guitar a much better chance of survival. This case also features a cushioned handle, for increased comfort.

Superb strings

I love the Savarez 540J strings on my Alhambra Mengual u Margarit. I tried the first on Geoff's recommendation when I bought my first Alhambra from Xguitars (A Pro Linea), and I added them when I got the M&M. I can't imagine why I would use anything else.

A very good case

After spending a lot of money on a new guitar, I thought it made sense to get the better case. It is well padded, the hardware and handle are of good quality. The only thing is, on the edges of the vinyl covering you can see some white threads showing which made me hope it doesn't come unglued easily. The inside is more important though.

Hello, Patty.

Thank you very much for your review. It's very helpful for people to see that these cases are made this way so they can make an informed decision.

I worked with TKL to design this case. They are made to be very protective of the guitar, with extra depth, a double arch, and extra padding on the top especially, but also the back, and a double neck cradle. Normally for a case that would protect your guitar this well, you'd have to pay at least double (perhaps triple) what these cost.

I believe this case will serve you well for many years. I've sold them for about 15 years and have never had anyone report a problem. If you do have trouble with it, please let me know and I'll take care of it for you.

TKL C0041 Guitar Case

I wanted to make sure that I had a good quality case to protect my new Alhambra 10 Premier Classical guitar. Geoff helped me to decide on this one, and when it arrived I knew I had made the right decision. It is a beautiful case inside and out. But most importantly it is well build to provide good protection to my substantial investment in a quality instrument. I am very pleased with it.

Highly Recommend

The TKL B4166/BL Hardshell Case - Upgrade fits my Alhambra 10 Premier perfectly.
This is not a $900 case but the construction is very solid, the latches are good quality the the interior padding is augmented to hold the guitar snugly around the entire body and keep it from moving in any direction. The neck is supported in two places.
It has a decent sized accessory compartment If you're buying an Alhambra 4//4 size guitar I would highly recommend it.
