The 5Fp OP Piñana Negra Flamenco Guitar is born fruit of the collaboration between the flamenco guitarist Carlos Piñana and Alhambra Guitars. Alhambra has introduced some technical specifications that make up a very versatile guitar, with an excellent value for money and with the qualities required by today's flamenco guitarists. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)
The model 5Fp OP Piñana is a flamenco guitar called flamenco negra. Instead of cypress for the back and sides it is made of Indian rosewood. Although in this case, it is important to highlight the choice of solid Cedar for the top. Using cedar top is infrequent in flamenco guitars, but Alhambra has been investigating to create a new bracing design to get a guitar with the flamenco personality. Its sound is round and gives greater versatility for the interpretation of different styles.
The 5 Fp OP Piñana model comes with gold machine heads, a comfortable Mahogany neck reinforced with ebony and melamine for the saddle and nut, a highly transmitting material that helps balance the sound. This model has a classy aesthetic, full of special details and a great quality sound. The 5 Fp OP Piñana is a different flamenco guitar, with innovative elements but still maintaining the flamenco tradition.
OPEN PORE FINISH
In the construction of this guitar Alhambra has used the open pore system. This finishing system offers a natural satin finish in the aesthetics of the instrument, where the pores of the wood remain open, which allows the sound of the guitar to have a great resonance. This finish requires fewer amount of varnish however a powerful sound is achieved.

I recommend it
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.
Sounds and plays better than I ever imagined. Crisp. I might buy another one just because I like it so much
I am so very pleased to be the proud owner of such a beautiful guitar. I am enjoying its loud Flamenco voice along with the comfortable feel of a more expensive instrument. It's a keeper for my collection.
