I've been playing my one Classical Guitar for over 49 years.
During those years I toured a major guitar factory in El Cajon, CA., twice, to learn how guitars are made and the new technology used in making guitars today.
For my birthday this year I wanted a new Classical Guitar, but I wanted one made in Spain.
After looking at the many guitar manufacturers in Spain, I chose Alhambra Guitarras because they seemed to apply the new technology along with keeping the past art form of making a quality guitar.
Through the Alhambra website I found XGuitars as a distributor.
The next step for me was choosing a sound that I liked.
Both the Alhambra and XGuitars websites provided me with several listening choices, through sound clips and videos.
The Alhambra 9P Cedar seemed to create the exact sound I was looking for, so I ordered my new guitar from XGuitars.
When my guitar arrived, in perfect condition, I had to look at the beautiful case for over 4 hours, as suggested, since it arrived during cold weather. Finally, I opened the guitar case was impressed by the beauty and craftmanship of the guitar.
After playing the guitar, the sound of the Alhambra 9P is the warm full sound I was looking for, a perfect choice for me.
I am extremely satisfied with my Alhambra 9P.
Geoff, the owner of XGuitars, kept me informed through the entire purchasing/shipping process, including follow-up. His quality checklist made sure my guitar was in perfect condition before shipping. Geoff has a degree in classical guitar performance and has been working for Alhambra USA for about 9 years, so I know he loves guitars as much as I do, most probably even more.
It was a pleasure working with Geoff.
Had a nice telephone conversation with Geoff about my capabilities and what I wanted in a new guitar. We both agreed that the Ramirez Estudio 3 Cedar Classical Guitar would fit my requirements for tone, playability and future musiical growth. I am happy to have purchased from Geoff and xguitars. The process was seamless (with Geoff getting the instrument out very fast.) The shipping was on time. The guitar is beautiful in looks and tone. As a matter of fact, after waiting 6 hours for the instrument to equilibrate to my house temperature, I tuned it to concert pitch. My wife, who is hard of hearing, immediately heard the huge difference between the Ramirez Estudio 3 Cedar Classical Guitar and my old guitar and commented as to how lovely it sounds. I have had it for 12 days now, and it only gets better. I am looking forward to exploring the tonal landscape of this beautiful instrument. If I need another guitar, I will give geoff and xguitars.com another call.
Greetings XGuitars: I love my Alhambra 5P CW E8.I requested the Savarez nylon strings because I love the mellow and softer sound. I like playing bossa-nova music and this guitar is awesome for that style.All I say I’m very happy with my purchase and I think everyone will be as satisfied as I am. Also I saw the band Sirius B on YouTube, you are great guys, I love your music!
As I was looking for a Spanish classical guitar, I compared several in this price range before deciding on the Ramirez Guitarra del Tiempo. The guitar arrived in perfect condition with a beautiful finish. The tuning machines were not black as described on the website, and since the guitar was made in 2022, I was a little concerned about the history of the tuning machines. Geoff assured me that they were not the problematic tuning machines described in earlier reviews, and followed up after a bit that he had swapped out the machines that were having an issue during setup with new ones from Ramirez. Indeed, they appear to be the pearl and gold tuning machines that Ramirez currently uses. I encountered one small problem as the strings stretched after acclimating, the first string broke less than a week after delivery and upon examination appeared to have some abrasion where it broke. There are no burrs on the frets or nut, and nothing on the fret board that would damage the string, so no idea why it broke at that point, but not worth deducting a star on a beautiful looking and sounding instrument.
I hesitated to purchase a guitar online, but decided to make the “jump”.
Buying my guitar from Geoff at XGuitars made it super easy and worry-free. Geoff was always prompt in responding to my emails and phone calls. Also he was very patient, as I changed my mind several times about which guitar to buy. I would not hesitate to purchase from XGuitars in the future. My guitar arrived carefully packed and in superb condition!
Arrived on time in perfect shape. I love this guitar can’t stop playing it.
Both beautiful and sounds amazing. It cost me more due to import fees to Canada but my internet search always brought me back to XGuitars … and for good reason as I always prefer to buy from knowledgeable and helpful stores. This is my first guitar and really appreciated the suggestions Geoff made regarding strings and changes to the bridge and nut. Being a senior, I hope to live long enough to need another lol.
I was very pleased with my new Flamenco guitar. The cedar has a nice warmer sound. My first purchase with XGuitars and it will not be my last. Geoffrey is very knowledgeable and good at his craft. He is very understanding, gives good suggestions and patient. The man has integrity. I will definitely be a return customer. Thank you Geoffrey and God Bless you and yours.
I could not be more pleased with the service or the guitar. I can't put it down. Sounds great and is a blast to play!
I was looking for a high quality, reasonably priced student guitar and this is it! It has a solid cedar top that is nicely resonant with good sustain on all strings at low and high frets. It is much easier to play than the old classical guitar that I started with. I bought it from XGuitars so that it would be set up by a professional luthier. Geoff corresponded with me about the setup, lowered the action, and even filed and tapered a high fret to avoid a buzz. He noticed that the shipping method I had selected would take a bit longer, so we changed it and I got a bit of a refund. My new guitar arrived in perfect condition, with the strings Geoff recommended, and optimized for ease of play by a beginner like me. I'm very happy with this experience.
The Alhambra 10 Premier is an incredible guitar - amazingly beautiful in sound and appearance, and impeccably set up (by Geoff)!
Thanks so much for your efforts, Geoff!
This is the second classical guitar I have bought from XGuitars. I choose XGuitars for three reasons: 1) the excellent selection of fine classical guitars at a fair and reasonable price, 2) the friendly, knowledgeable, and timely service provided by Geoff Ferdon, and 3) proper guitar setup. The Cordoba Friedrich guitar arrived a few days after my purchase carefully packaged and perfectly set up. Simply put, this is the most beautiful sounding guitar I have ever played. The guitar has a deep, rich, and resonant sound. It has amazing volume without compromising the sound quality. Daniel Friedrich is a legendary luthier. This guitar incorporates all of the techniques he employed in building his guitars at a fraction of the cost. I recommend this guitar without hesitation to anyone looking for a concert quality cedar top instrument.
I have severe osteoarthritis, particularly in my left hand, so guitar setup is especially important to me. I asked Geoff to set the action as low as possible without creating fret buzz. He did so perfectly. I can sit and play for an hour without pain. Proper setup based on the guitarist's personal preferences is important for any guitar purchase to maximize your playing enjoyment. This is another reason for my choice of XGuitars. Thank you, Geoff!
An amazing guitar. Geoff recommended this guitar and it has been nothing but great right out of the box. He was patient, answered all our questions, provided photos- it was a great buying experience. Thank you so much Geoff
Geoff at XGuitars has been and still is exceptionally excellent at providing guidance to me while trying to decide what guitar to buy.
I finally decided to upgrade to a better quality guitar, but was concerned about finding the right guitar for my style of playing and the price I should expect to spend.
Geoff patiently guided me in choosing and provided professional advice which ultimately helped me feel secure with the choice I made.
I am extremely grateful to Geoff and pleasantly pleased with XGuitars!
The 9P is absolutely gorgeous! The workmanship is meticulous. Geoff's description indicated the guitar was "loud". It is loud, perfectly loud. I'm a finger style hobbyist and prefer ultra light strings for my old fingers. The 9P has plenty of volume without an amp and I find the tone to be perfect.
Let’s talk about fragility...
So if you’re going through one of those ramen-noodle budget phases in your life, allow me to share some of the dollar store wisdom I learned as a music student!
