The Admira Malaga guitar is Spanish-built and specially designed to suit guitarists with short reach or small hands. The neck is very similar to that of the ever popular 'Almeria' guitar but it is much slimmer, allowing for younger or smaller players to play more comfortably.
The guitar boasts a solid cedar top which lends itself well to the Spanish style of playing as it produces a warmer, more direct sound than the alternative 'solid spruce' top. The back and sides are crafted from 'sapele' wood which tonally does the same as mahogany but has a slightly improved treble sound. The fingerboard is made from mongoy which is renowned for being strong and durable making it all the better for younger, enthusiastic players! The head is fitted with nickel machines which effectively help to maintain accurate tuning.
All in all, this is an excellent guitar for players with a short reach, small hands or simply those who prefer a guitar which responds to a lighter touch.
Tom, our in-store guitarist reviewed the Admira Malaga - What a great starter guitar. This Malaga has got the tone quality of a much higher-end instrument yet the neck size and action has been specially designed to suit smaller hands. I'd recommend this to any of my pupils. It's comfortable to play and I really like the finish as well - the sapelli wood gives it that lovely traditional Spanish look."
