Perfection Guaranteed:
Every guitar is given a professional setup and a thorough 19-point inspection including playing through every note, adjusting saddle & nut heights to ensure proper action with no buzzing, checking intonation, 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.

Zero-Cost Warranty: All manufacturer warranties require the purchaser to pay all shipping costs associated with warranty work or repair.  XGuitars is the only online dealer who will pay these shipping costs for you (continental U.S. only). You will pay $0 for shipping or any other expenses for a warranty claim on a guitar purchased from XGuitars.


The Alhambra 4P Classical Guitar is the first Alhambra classical guitar to have rosewood back and sides and an ebony fretboard, and it has become one of our best-selling guitars. Known throughout the world for its sweet and full-bodied sound, this guitar is comparable to instruments well out of its price range. With high-quality precision tuners, and a melamine nut and saddle, the instrument is a perfect combination of sound projection and durability. The ebony fingerboard is resilient to the wear and tear of everyday playing, and the four layers of light varnish provide excellent projection without compromising durability of the top.

Recommended Strings: This guitar comes with D'Addario EXP44 Extra Hard Tension strings installed.  These are not bad strings, but don't allow the guitar to live up to its full potential.  I recommend the following strings for this guitar:

Carbon: My favorite strings of all I've tried are Savarez Alliance set 540J. These strings provide great volume and resonance.  Being Carbon, they are a bit thinner in diameter than nylon strings. The tone is brighter and not as mellow as nylon strings. If you want a softer sound, nylon may suit you better.

Nylon: For nylon strings, I really like Savarez Corum New Cristal set 500CJ strings.  They provide a nice round tone, good volume, and a comfortable feel.

If you would like to have strings installed other than the ones that come with your guitar, you can add the Strings Installation Service to your order.

XGuitars is the best!

Geoff did an outstanding job preparing and shipping a gorgeous Alhambra 4P. The sound is incredible. My son’s guitar teacher thought it was an excellent purchase and worth way more than we paid. The communication for this purchase was the best I have ever had with a retailer. We will be back! Thanks Geoff!

Great product and service

Really enjoyed doing business with Geoff. He's quick to respond to all queries and provided timely service. The guitar and case were packaged well and arrived in perfect shape. I love the guitar and the case seems extremely upscale. I was somewhat concerned purchasing a guitar sight unseen. But, after corresponding with Geoff and understanding Xguitars rock solid return guarantee I decided to take the plunge and I'm glad I did.

I hadn't ordered from XGuitars before ordering a 4P. Geoff communicated about the order and shipment in a timely manner. The guitar arrived in a few days. It was well packaged and in perfect condition. It sounds great and looks beautiful. I wouldn't hesitate to order from XGuitars again.

Alhambra 4P guitar

Fantastic guitar and superb service from XGuitars. I am very glad I did extensive research on which Alhambra guitar I wanted and then once I decided on the 4P and found that XGuitars was so highly rated I did not hesitate. I am very glad that I placed my order with them. I also ordered a hard case with the guitar. Since then I have ordered 2 more items from them and the order was shipped the next morning.

Better Late Than Never

I'm an octogenarian guitar rookie and have a passion for classical guitar music.
My switch to nylon has made my journey much more satisfying.
This is also good exercise for my arthritic hands.
The Alhambra 4P is a wonderful guitar and working with Geoff was a great experience.
