The Admira Alba is a lovely addition to Admira's range of Spanish classical guitars. This instrument, like its full size sibling, is made under careful observation in a very modern facility in China. Although made in the far east, Admira have gone to great lengths in order to maintain a real Spanish feeling to this guitar. Each step of the process is carefully monitored by Guitar luthiers which ensures a high quality of build throughout.
The Alba is produced using a mixture of good, solid tonewoods, including a Pine top and rosewood fingerboard. It therefore has a good, punchy, well rounded sound. Excellent for the student as it can cope with the technical picking of traditional Spanish guitar music as well as casual strumming.
Also available in a full size for the younger player, called the ADM200 - click here
James, one of our guitarists has reviewed this item:
"Although this item is produced in a Chinese factory, the Admira heritage is plain to see. It has a lovely overall design, is nicely weighted and in this size produces and really nice sound. This model is deigned for the beginner, there are certainly more expensive guitars made, but as first guitar it offers good tuning stability, attractive design, nice weight and an easy playing style. Remember to get a bag though, it doesn't come with one!"
