Initially, Alhambra custom-made a small number of “crossover” nylon strung guitars at our request, specifically for our store. We have a lot of studio and jazz players who need that nylon string tonality for Latin music recording projects and live performance applications, but feel uncomfortable with the regular two inch wide nut and flat fingerboard typically found on classical guitars.
The success of our custom crossover guitar prompted Alhambra to officially add this new Alhambra Cross Over CS-3 CW E2 to their catalogue. This handsome instrument features a comfortable 1 7/8″ nut width on a radiused ebony fingerboard, scooped neck heel & cutaway with excellent access to the upper registers, all solid wood construction and the Fishman Prefix Pro Blender pickup/mic/preamp system!
This instrument is also available as an E5, with a Fishman Premium Blend pickup/microphone system.
