Alhambra 5P CW ZE2 Cutaway Classical Left Handed


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Alhambra 5P CW ZE2 is part of Alhambra’s Conservatory line, intended for semi-professional players and advanced students who need a cutaway model. Here, we’re seeing a 5P CW ZE2, the Z meaning Left Handed and with a Fishman Prefix Pro Blend pickup system!

The Alhambra 5P is built with a mix of solid and laminate woods, and here we’re seeing it with a Red Cedar top and laminate Indian Rosewood – Palisandro in Spanish, hence the 7P designation- for the sides, back.  The headplate and bridge use solid Rosewood.. The guitar is constructed in the Spanish style with a Mahogany neck and Ebony stiffener and fingerboard.

The CW cutaway series have a slightly narrower fingerboard at the nut, 50mm instead of 52, to meet the needs of many of the players who require the cutaway. A full 650mm scale is used, just as with most concert classicals.

This model has an E2 designation, which means a Fishmap Prefix Pro Blend pickup and pre-amp combination. In the model designations, an E indicates Electrified, the presence of a pickup, plus a digit identifying which pickup and preamp is used.

Here’s what Alhambra says about their Conservatory series 5P CW:

“The Alhambra 5P CW Made from great quality woods, Red Cedar for the top and laminated Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, the first thing calling your attention is the light weight. That is the kind of instrument that will ring and vibrate.

A beautiful and high quality Ebony for fingerboard! As you turn the guitar you remark the neck is reinforced with an ebony strip instead of truss rod. Compact and light, it conducts the vibration better and allows to guitar to fully vibrate from the head to bottom of the body. You really feel it as you strum the first chords.

Crafted with great skill, the Alhambra 5P cw E2 is a beautiful instrument that pleases the eyes as well as the ears and fingertips. Bright and pleasing trebles harmonize with solid and full basses. This awesome guitar sound can best be described as clear, well-balanced with great dynamics. Like always with Alhambra Guitars, rich tone is coupled to a comfortable action.”
