Almansa German Spruce
Almansa instruments, from the east coast of Spain, have established a reputation for quality of tone and construction which makes them worthy of consideration both for the serious student and professional performer. All Almansa instruments are equipped with solid soundboards for superior sound and maturity with age.
The Almansa 401 Guitar is part of the Almansa “Study Classical” range. It has a solid cedar top, laminated mahogany back and sides, mahogany neck and Indian rosewood fingerboard. Nut width: 52mm. Scale length: 650mm.
Model 401 is Almansa’s entry level classical guitar. It shares the same high quality materials as the 402 & 403 models. The difference between these models are the wood rosettes that are unique for each model and the amount of detail in the bindings. The Model 403 offers a more detailed machine head. This Almansa instrument was handmade in Spain using traditional Spanish heel construction. 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 most sought-after classical guitars handmade by the most respected Luthiers are constructed using this Spanish heel method. Although entry- level by Almansa standards, one visit to the local big box music store will reveal these instruments’ quality of materials, workmanship, and voice will rival everything imported from Asia. This explains why the Almansa brand is growing in the international markets.
