Alhambra Left Handed Guitars Guide

Wondering which Alhambra left handed guitars are currently available? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

Alhambra Guitars was founded in a small town in Spain in 1965 where they made a name for themselves producing finely crafted acoustic guitars.

Although mainly known for their Classical and Flamenco guitars, Alhambra also produces standard steel-string acoustic guitars as well as more traditional instruments such as Bandurrias.

Does Alhambra Make Left Handed Guitars?

Yes! There are 5 left-handed Alhambra guitars available in the brand’s current lineup. All of the lefty models are classical guitars, with no steel-string or flamenco models currently available.

The Alhambra range will please all levels of guitar players as they offer affordable guitars aimed at beginners as well as higher-end instruments for seasoned professionals.

All Alhambra left handed guitars ship with a quality padded gig bag.

Alhambra 1C HT

Left Handed Alhambra 1C HT

The 1C HT (Hybrid Terra) classical is the most affordable left handed Alhambra guitar and is aimed squarely at new players and students. Although that is not to say that the brand has skimped on features.

This entry-level model features a solid red cedar top for improved resonance, a genuine Indian rosewood fingerboard, and classy maple binding.

Other appointments include mahogany back and sides, a mahogany neck, and a 10% lower weight than other models in the range.

With this model, Alhambra has gone all out to try and produce an environmentally friendly instrument. They developed a new varnishing system which has enabled them to reduce their carbon footprint by 68%, and their CO2 emissions by 90%.

  • Top: Solid Red Cedar
  • Back & Sides: Mahogany
  • Neck: Mahogany with Indian Rosewood Fingerboard
  • Binding: Maple

Alhambra 3C

Left Handed alhambra 3C

The 3C Alhambra left handed guitar is another classical model aimed at student players. You can probably deduce from the higher number that the 3C is a little higher in quality when compared to the 1C above.

You have the choice between a solid red cedar or solid German spruce top. Pick cedar for a rich and warm sound, or opt for spruce if you’d prefer a bright and punchy tone.

Check out the demonstration video below for a great example of the sounds you might get from the cedar-topped model.

  • Top: Solid Red Cedar or Solid German Spruce
  • Back & Sides: Mahogany
  • Neck: Mahogany with Indian Rosewood Fingerboard

Alhambra 4P Classical

Left Handed Alhambra 4P

The superb 4P from the Conservatory series is Alhambra’s best-selling model. This is largely thanks to its accessible price point and premium features.

This guitar also features the choice of either a solid red cedar or a solid German spruce top. In addition, you’ll find Indian rosewood back and sides, a mahogany neck with a hard ebony fretboard, plus higher-quality gold-plated tuners.

Check out the demonstration video below for a great overview of the sweet and powerful sound that the left handed Alhambra 4P is capable of.

  • Top: Solid Red Cedar or Solid German Spruce
  • Back & Sides: Indian Rosewood
  • Neck: Mahogany with Ebony Fingerboard

Alhambra 5P

Left Handed Alhambra 5P

The Alhambra 5P classical guitar is another step up in terms of quality and sound when compared to the 4P above.

The two guitars are very similar, with the main difference being that the 5P offers ebony reinforcement in the neck. As a result, this should provide a very stable neck that is much more resistant to the effects of humidity and temperature.

In theory, this model should require a guitar setup less frequently than the 4P.

Here’s a great review video that may help with your decision on whether to opt for the 4P or the 5P.

  • Top: Solid Red Cedar or Solid German Spruce
  • Back & Sides: Indian Rosewood
  • Neck: Mahogany (Ebony Reinforced) with Ebony Fingerboard

Alhambra 9P

Left Handed Alhambra 9P

The final left handed Alhambra guitar is the 9P classical from the brand’s Concert series. This is the highest-end lefty model that Alhambra currently produces.

Premium features include select solid red cedar or German spruce tops, solid Indian rosewood back and sides, a cedar neck reinforced with hard ebony, an ebony fingerboard, plus deluxe gold tuners.

The 9P also ships with a real bone nut and saddle, and a special bracing pattern designed to give maximum projection with a balanced and deep sound.

Take a listen to the demonstration video below and fall in love with the incredible sounds of the left handed Alhambra 9P classical guitar.

  • Top: Select Solid Red Cedar or Solid German Spruce
  • Back & Sides: Solid Indian Rosewood
  • Neck: Cedar (Ebony Reinforced) with Ebony Fingerboard
