Alhambra Luthier Aniversario Cedar and Ziricote


Instrument Categories: ,

The Alhambra Luthier Aniversario is at the top of the line, featuring Ziricote for the sides, back, bridge and head plate, and either Red Cedar or Spruce for the ‘Japanese House’ braced top. The Alhambra Luthier Aniversario line was introduced in 2015 for Alhambra’s 50th anniversary.

Built in Muro de Alcoy alongside other models, the Alhambra Luthier Aniversario is built in the traditional Spanish style, with the Ziricote sides tying into the Spanish Cedar (Cedrela odorata, which is neither Spanish or a Cedar) neck block. The top is available in Red Cedar as seen here, or Spruce. The fingerboard is Ebony. The top uses a complex ‘Japanese House’ bracing pattern with eleven fan brace elements.

Here’s the builder on the Alhambra Luthier Aniversario:

“The Alhambra Luthier Aniversario model is an extraordinary guitar built with ziricote on the sides and back, which gives it a strong aesthetic personality. The beautiful and exquisite ziricote wood perfectly worked and assembled in the body of the guitar, together with the bubinga used for the binding, endows the Luthier Anniversary model with an unusual beauty. Different brown tones of the veins of the wood, which forms an infinite number of contrasts in the body of the guitar. Some natural drawings that define totally unique guitars. Exclusive guitars.

The Alhambra Luthier Aniversario model is designed with 20 frets in the fingerboard, cedar top with nitro lacquer finish and high-end Schaller Grand Tune Classic Hauser machine heads. Its harmonic richness combined with the precise tuning, make this model a perfect ally for professional guitarists who want to present their acting virtues in any auditorium or concert hall.

The use of ziricote wood, together with a harmonic bar design called “Japanese House”, gives the Luthier Anniversary model a different sound and great beauty. Besides its exceptional volume offers a lot of security to the interpretation of the guitarist.”

Sold with its original ‘Euro’ style hard shell case.
