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 7FC CW E8 Flamenco Guitar is a handmade Spanish guitar with cutaway & electronics. It is a beautiful, all solid, flamenco guitar. It is beautifully crafted, has a wonderful tone, is very loud, and is very playable. This is an excellent choice for the serious guitar player. (Click here to hear the pronunciation of "Alhambra".)

(The guitar shown in photos has the Fishman Prefix system.  The guitar you would receive has the Flex M System like the 9P CW E8 does, as shown in the final photo above.)

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.

Excellent personal service

My experience dealing with Geoff of X Guitars was a pleasure. He was very professional and always responded to my emails promptly. There was some misunderstanding about what pre amp came with the Alhambra guitar I purchased, but that was my fault- Geoff gave me good information that cleared it up. I am thoroughly happy with my guitar, and if I ever but another, I will go to X Guitars. Highly recommended- 5 stars for sure.
