Discontinued! Alhambra Luthier Rio Concert Classical Guitar


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Please note!  The Alhambra Luthier Rio has been discontinued and replaced by the Alhambra Linea Profesional model.   We’re maintaining this post for historical purposes.   Please contact us for more information. 

The Alhambra Luthier Rio Concert Classical Guitar is an excellent instrument, available only on special order. It features a Master Grade cedar top and solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides.   The name of the model, ‘Rio’, comes from the Spanish name for Brazilian Rosewood – Palosanto de Rio. The Alhambra Guitar Company of Muro de Alcoy in Spain have built a reputation for crafting high quality nylon string guitars used extensively by students, educators and professional musicians.

This instrument has had a very limited production and represents the finest quality tonewoods and craftsmanship offered by this traditional Spanish company.

The Alhambra Luthier Rio model has been officially superseded by the Luthier Exotico, which uses Red Peroba for the sides and back in place of Brazilian Rosewood. We have some of the last new ‘production’ models available, though Alhambra will build more while their Brazilian stocks last.

The tone and projection on the Luthier Rio model rivals any of the finest professional grade concert classical guitars available worldwide.   This instrument has clarity,  an even response and a lush overall sonority that has a rich layer of overtones on every note!

Euro hardshell case included.
