Alhambra Cross Over CS-3 CW E5


Instrument Categories: ,

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 E5 to their catalogue.  This handsome  instrument features a comfortable 1 7/8 inch nut width on a radiused ebony  fingerboard,  scooped neck heel and cutaway with excellent access to the upper  registers,  all solid wood construction and the Fishman Prefix Premium Blender  pickup/mic/preamp system!

This instrument is also available as an E2, with a Fishman Pro Blend pickup/microphone system.

Details for the Alhambra Cross Over CS-3 CW E5:

Body – Venetian cutaway body design.  Bookmatched Western Red  cedar top; Solid East Indian rosewood back and sides; maple body  binding. 4″ body depth at end pin. 14 5/8 inch wide lower  bout dimension

Neck – Mahogany neck with  1 7/8 inch wide nut. Radiused ebony fingerboard with side dots.  650 mm scale length, treble side of neck heel extends to 13th fret for  easy access

Hardware – Fishman Prefix Premium Blend  mic/pickup/preamp E-5 system.  Gold tuners with black  buttons.  A ‘Euro’ hardshell case is included.

Here is a short video of Grant MacNeill and Gordon O’Brien reviewing the Alhambra crossover models.
