The Official Line...
Despite being the entry-level classical of the conservatory line, the Almansa 434 Classical Guitar offers top-notch features and craftsmanship. This Almansa instrument was handmade in Spain using traditional Spanish heel construction handmade by the most respected Luthiers. This method of construction is expensive, durable, and most importantly, allows the instrument’s materials to act as one and project a beautiful voice.The solid cedar top adds warmth to the tone and has a softer attack; perfect for classical, flamenco and other finger-picking playing styles. The pairing of solid Indian rosewood back and sides with a mahogany neck offer great mid-range sound and plenty of projection for live performances. An ebony fretboard provides one of the smoothest feels for playing across the fretboard and gold-plated machine heads keep it all in tune perfectly.
