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:
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.
-Geoff Ferdón, owner of XGuitars
I've owned several guitars over the years. The 8P was my first serious classical guitar. It's a beautiful instrument that compels my hands to find new phrases and voicing. The feel is stunning, the tone balanced, and the service from XGuitars is top notch. You cannot go wrong buying this instrument. It's that good.
Excellent selection of strings, reasonable prices, and great step-by-step e-mail communications letting you know the exact status of your purchase.
The Alhambra 8P greatly exceeded my expectations! It is a superbly crafted instrument and Geoff adjusted the height of the action perfectly. It plays very well and has an astounding, robust sound. He also packaged the guitar with outstanding attention to detail and shipped it quickly. I recommend the upgraded TKL C0041 case and the Corum New Cristal 500CJ strings as this truly makes a terrific total package! Geoff provides extraordinary customer service--answering a myriad of questions patiently and thoughtfully that allow you to feel comfortable with your decision. Geoff, thanks for the marvelous result!
Geoff at XGuitars has been and still is exceptionally excellent at providing guidance to me while trying to decide what guitar to buy.
I finally decided to upgrade to a better quality guitar, but was concerned about finding the right guitar for my style of playing and the price I should expect to spend.
Geoff patiently guided me in choosing and provided professional advice which ultimately helped me feel secure with the choice I made.
I am extremely grateful to Geoff and pleasantly pleased with XGuitars!
It was a pleasure buying my 8P from Geoff at XGuitars. The 8P is a beautiful great sounding and easy to play guitar. Thanks for your help and my next purchase will certainly be at XGuitars.
