The deep sound of ziricote wood combined with the benefits of a cutaway guitar with a narrow body
The ziricote generates unique instruments, due to the contrasts of this wood grain, in addition to providing a deep and warm sound.
In the Iberia ziricote CTW model are combined beauty, singularity and sonic characteristics with the characteristics of a narrower body cutaway guitar.
The Iberia ziricote CTW model has been designed with a solid cedar top and Indian rosewood fingerboard, a precious wood with high hardness.
Also, a golden machine heads of Alhambra Guitars is installed in this model. It comes with melamine for the saddle and the nut, a synthetic material with high sound transmitting capabilities.
The bracing used for this model, called 50 anniversary, was designed in 2015 to commemorate the half-century of the existence of Alhambra Guitars.
The cutaway configuration offers some features suitable for playing with a pick, as well as fingerstyle. We highlight the low action and the short distance between strings since the nut width is only 50 mm.
In the same way, the cutaway offers easier access to the lower part of the fingerboard, which is in this case made of Indian rosewood. This feature, together with a narrow body, only 8 cm deep in the heel area, makes the Iberia ziricote CTW a very suitable guitar to play when standing through the use of a strap.
