Most Alhambra Guitars look great. But some people have a strange say on this that they make guitars that look superficially great but lacks a lot when it comes to projection. This is where I exactly beg to differ. This might be somewhat true for their beginner models, but the ones starting from the 8P range are definitely worth every penny. Anyways the 8P Guitar come in two models, one in solid German Spruce and one in Solid Red Cedar. There is also an option of getting pick guard or getting a Fish Man Pick up. I haven't tested them with the pick ups. But I've tested Fish-man pick ups on other Concert Guitars, which were simply superb. I do not know what kind of western cedar it had for the top.
In Conclusion, the guitar has really good value for money, although I wouldn't say great. The Bracing was particularly very interesting. Go check it out!
The most important thing about buying a classical guitar is not to conform to anyone’s idea, but to rely more on facts and objective evidence. Any guitar of any brand, cheap or expensive can sound terrible or weird if it gets damaged while shipping, or gets misused or is not maintained properly. Change in temperature is a huge constraint for properly maintaining classical guitars. Keep your guitar safely in a Hard-case. ( padded ones won’t do unless your guitar costs less than $500 ) Use a humidifier if you happen to live in an extremely dry area. Never expose it to direct sunlight. Keep silica gel packets in your guitar case, if u live in a very humid area. Standard relative humidity for maintaining classical guitars is around 50-60. A little fluctuation is generally not harmful. These guitars can talk and have a Life, so the way you treat them and take care of them will influence their tonal qualities.
Thank You and Have a nice day.
