The Alhambra 7C Cedar Classical Guitar is all-solid and handmade in Spain. It is designed similarly to the classic Alhambra models from 70’s, but has been revivified using new technologies and superior quality woods. The body of this instrument is constructed using cedar for the top and Indian rosewood for the back and sides. The neck is made from African mahogany and reinforced with ebony, which can be seen with a mirror or by removing the nut. The nut and the saddle are made from Melamine, which is an excellent transmitter of sound and known to enhance projection. With golden machine heads and an exquisite rosette, this guitar is a polished & refined representation of the classic Alhambra instrument. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)
For an even richer sound, we highly recommend the Alhambra 8P or Alhambra 9P. These models have a lacquer finish on the top and an innovative cross bracing system, both giving more resonance to the guitar by allowing the top to move more freely.

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:

A wonderful process working with Geoff to find the right guitar for what I was looking for and the 7C is perfect. Beautiful looking and sounding, it is a joy to hold and play.
