❌SOLD❌ Alhambra 7P CW E5 Cutaway Classical Guitar, 2012


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Alhambra 7P CW E5 Cutaway Classical is Alhambra’s 7P advanced Student Model fitted with with a cutaway and Fishman Prefix Premium Blender system.    This model’s full name is officially 7 P CW E (x), where the (x) is a number representing exactly which Fishman pickup system is installed. Currently, the numbers for pickup systems have been 2, 3 and 5. This is a level  7 guitar, with Rosewood back and sides –  represented by the P for the Spanish word for Rosewood, Palisandro.   The 7 P A CW is the Spruce top version with the A representing the Spanish word Abeto for Spruce or Fir.  

Handcrafted using solid woods, the Alhambra 7P CW E5 Cutaway Classical features a Red Western Cedar top model paired with Indian Rosewood for the back, sides, bridge and head plate. The neck is Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard and neck stiffener. Body blocks and linings are Mahogany, with Spruce for the top bracing.

This example was built during 2012 at the Alhambra shops in Muro de Alcoy, Alicante, Spain. It is in very good clean condition with hardly any wear. As the E5 model, this carries the Fishman Prefix Premium system combining an under-top transducer with an internal microphone, and the controls are helpfully mounted on the bass side. The battery compartment is accessed through the control box, so there’s no need to remove the strings to change the battery, or to remove it should the guitar be stored or shipped.

It’s a good idea to remove the battery from an acoustic guitar prior to shipping, in case it should come loose and move around in the guitar, or leak; this is less of an issue on battery-box equipped guitars, compared to those that use a velcro-closure bag attached to the neck block.

Be sure to check out the video of Grant MacNeill and Gordon O’Brien discussing these great guitars!

The original hard shell case is included.
