Alhambra 9C Classical Guitar Reviews
Purchased this unit from www.classicalguitarshop.com for (get this) $750! It was a "scratch & dent" item. This guitar retails for about $1700. The reasons for wanting a good classical guitar are obvious. I bought this guitar online from classicalguitarshop.com without ever having played it. I don't recommend this practice in general. But I got such a great deal on this guitar that I threw caution to the wind...and I'm so glad I did. But, seriously, if at all possible, play a guitar before you buy it! I happen to live in the extremely rural mountains of eastern Kentucky where classical guitar retailers simply don't exist.
The Alhambra 9C is a great instrument and I dare say that you'd be hard pressed to find a better built, better sounding production guitar on Earth. I've played the Ramirez 4E (another production guitar) that costs twice as much, and the Alhambra is every bit as good...if not better. Honestly, short of taking out a mortgage on a 100% hand-built guitar, you won't find a better guitar than the Alhambra. But I haven't played every guitar out there... I've been playing classical guitar for 10 years now and I consider myself to be a serious student of the instrument. I know a good guitar when I hear it. I highly recommend the Alhambra 9C and I highly recommend classicalguitarshop.com. They don't sell junk and they will stand behind their products.Andy M. rated this unit on 2004-07-03.
