alhambra 5p classical guitar

Alhambra 5p Classical Guitar

The Alhambra 5P improves upon the 4P by adding an ebony bar embedded in the neck. This bar helps keep the neck straight as it ages and also slightly boosts the sustain.

The important qualities of such woods include a close grain count and high stiffness to mass ratio (allows maximum output for the minimum input), resilience, light weight and resonance.

Beautifully hand-crafted in Spain (as is every Alhambra guitar) and with a handmade inlaid wood Rosette illustrates the close attention of the luthiers at Alhambra.

Also available with cutaway and the Fishman ProBlend amplification system.

The neck is 2mm less wide than standard, making it a bit easier to play.

As I play it, the guitar vibrates against my chest making it one with its player. The Linea resonates so beautifully. The tone is equally matched by its beauty. From the head stock to the bridge, the Linea performs and looks amazing. I have also been very pleased with Geoff's professional and courteous service. Geoff is clearly concerned that his customers are pleased with their purchases. I have waited thirty years for my dream guitar and now I finally have it." - Rick, Taft,CA
