The Alhambra 7FC Blanca Flamenco Guitar is a handmade flamenco blanca guitar with a beautiful solid cypress back and sides. Tremendous, genuine, brilliant and percussive are some of the adjectives that define the 7Fc. An instrument with an impressive flamenco sound, constant tone and definition in the melody. It is also fully balanced, both in power as well as in the relation between bass and treble. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)
The 7Fc is an instrument of the line of conservatory, with a low level of hardness and the quality that guarantees Manufacturas Alhambra. A very comfortable white flamenco guitar which will meet the demands of a flamenco interpreter.
EBONY REINFORCEMENT ON NECK
Besides the solid cypress back and sides and top solid European spruce, this guitar incorporates ebony on the fingerboard, gold plated machine heads and ebony reinforcement on the neck. In the process of making the Alhambra guitars, the ebony reinforcement is placed inside the neck and it is not visible at simple sight. In order to see the ebony piece, the saddle must be removed. The reinforcement is located just under the fingerboard.
AN EXTRA SADDLE
Each guitar player has a way of playing, which means that within the same model there will be variations. In this case, it is possible to change the action of the strings by changing the saddle bone. The model 7 Fc comes with two saddles with different height, to get a lower or higher action, already adapted to the guitar. A guitar designed to generate the correct percussiveness when the guitar player requires it and to allow the greater comfort in the interpretation. Both, the saddle and the nut are made of melamine, this material is highly conductive of the sound and it helps to balance the sound in the instrument.

Xguitars was exceptionally communicative in the ordering process and my beautiful guitar (since named Blondie) came with no hassle and in perfect condition. I'm really looking forward to getting another guitar from this dude.
I ordered the Alhambra from Xguitars because I wanted to make sure it would not have any defects or damage. It arrived fast and in excellent condition . Buying the F4 next from Xguitars!
Not only am I really happy with my guitar, but also with the service. It is explicitly evident that Geoff has a passion for this business, and the entire transaction was a pleasure. I will definitely shop here again, and I would advise all fellow musicians to do the same!
At first, I was hesitant for this order. I was looking for a flamenco guitar at different other websites. It was going to be my first flamenco guitar to be purchased online, so I did a little research and found out about Alhambra brands by recommendations from various artist and bloggers. It was either this one or a Córdoba.
I must say I’m happy with my choice, the guitar feels and sounds more for the current price. Man, solid spruce and solid cypress for the price is a good value. Overall, the guitar is solid(no pun). No high end cosmetics to raise the price, but the woods and construction is superb. The guitar has great response when I play the rasgueos and golpes. The neck is slightly beefy but comfy too. The action is slight higher for a flamenco guitar, but it feels right. The guitar was well secure and protected when it arrived. If I ever decide to get higher end Alhambra. I would definitely consider buying it here first. Thank you for the great service.
This is the second time i order Alhambra Flamenco Guitar from xguitars.com. In both times I had very good experience with shipping, packaging, quality and fast response. Thank you very much - looking to do more business with you.
