The Alhambra 10Fp Piñana Spruce is a flamenco negra guitar, completely solid and with cedar top. A very beautiful guitar of great quality. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)
This model has been developed in collaboration with the flamenco guitarist Carlos Piñana, which has introduced technical specifications that define an instrument with the qualities required by today's flamenco guitarists, obtaining a very beautiful and high quality flamenco guitar.
As a differentiating element of the 10 Fp Piñana, the design of the head is evident. A horn-shaped top with a glossy finish that easily identifies this instrument and gives it a lot of personality.
The 10Fp Piñana model is a guitar called “negra”, due to its main feature, the use of Indian rosewood solid to make the back and sides. This particular instrument was special-ordered with a spruce top, giving it a more traditional flamenco sound than the standard 10Fp Piñana model.
On this particular 10Fp Piñana, the finish is gloss.
The 10Fp Piñana is a guitar with a very flamenco sound but with a special warmth, an adequate sound to be able to interpret the current flamenco music, but without losing the tradition of this art.
The 10 Fp Piñana model is crafted with luxury gold machine heads and a very comfortable neck with ebony reinforcement.
An instrument that by its aesthetic characteristics has a lot of elegance and personality. These are qualities that are strengthened when they join the sound of this interesting guitar.
