The Alhambra CS LR S E3 Crossover Classical Guitar with laminated Rosewood back and sides and a Fishman Prefix pickup option is a lower cost option for the steel string player. If you are needing the responsiveness of nylon, with the practicalities of amplification - the Alhambra CS LR S E3 is the answer!
Initially, Alhambra custom-made a small number of “crossover” nylon strung guitars at our request, specifically for our store. We have a lot of studio and jazz players who need that nylon string tonality for Latin music recording projects and live performance applications, but feel uncomfortable with the regular two inch wide nut and flat fingerboard typically found on classical guitars.
The Alhambra Crossover CS-LR is an excellent solution to those who are willing to express modern music with a classy touch. With a neck of 48 mm and its fine quality of Cedar top, this instrument has the versatility of giving you a beautiful sound plugged or unplugged. The elegant design of its headstock will allow musicians to display style and project a sound that matches the look of this amazing instrument. The Crossover guitar has an optional Fishman pick up; these guitars have a very balanced tone that is adjustable to the performer’s liking after amplified through a carefully placed Fishman pre-amp system.
The Alhambra Crossover classical CS-LR features a radiused fingerboard, and is a guitar with a look and sound that offers you the best of two worlds. The S Series is an improved version thanks to the new bracing, which it has more volume.
As with all Alhambra instruments, the crossover classical CS-LR plays very well as delivered and we will of course set up the guitar to the player’s requirements. These guitars are acoustically a bit brighter than traditional full bodied classical models, but this is often not noticed once amplified.
