LAUNCHING NEW SERIES
“The Serie S”
Model : 6 (in short S6)

In response to more demanding guitarist, the Alhambra S.L Spain recently launched the all new Serie S in just 2 years after the Pepe Toldo’s Sound Reflector Series (PT Series) launching year in 2012.
While the Sound Reflector series have been constantly in high demand since the launching date and prove to deliver more resonance harmonics, volume & overall balance tones and the Serie S was designed under completely new concept than the traditional models foundation.

See & hear the S6 review by Luthier Guitar Centre :

Serie S, model 6 is the top model among Serie S (in short, the S6)
Is the Serie S uses the traditional Torres' fan braces ? here is our short review.
The S6 uses entirely new bracing style, using 2 horizontal tone bars underneath the bridge & lower part of sound-hole and does not re-use the Torres’ fans bracing method at all. The 2 horizontal tone bars’ timber are 3 layers of wood materials which were stacked in different cross grains direction as you can see from the picture. As per today write-up date, we think the placement, shapes, its distance between the two bars, the body shapes, body thickness are responsible for the guitar’s capability in resonating each & every single tones. The quality of Alhambra cavity resonance (the body) as usual, it is the best of the industry today. Since there are only 2 horizontal bars with no braces allowing the S6 has the very light weight top, thus superb resonance & longer sustain.
The strength of the bridge which is sit on top’s belly were enforced with the present of the lower horizontal bar situated right below the bridge. As such, our prediction the S6 structure maybe the best choice to withstand the tropical climate’s higher humidity which is the usual cause of guitar top’s belly pop-up.
Since this is a completely new series, only the time will prove our hypothesis at this juncture.

S6 materials / features :
  • Top : solid cedar
  • Back/side : Indian Rosewood
  • Fretboard : Ebony
  • Body binding : Top with double green linings, Rosewood binding
  • Body thickness : 10.5 CM
  • Upper bout : 29 CM
  • Lower bout : 38 CM
  • Sound hole diameter : 8.8 CM

S6 sound traits : superior trebles vibes and sustain as it delivers deeper & more accurate mid to high frequency resonance quality allowing the players to choose its tones colouring style (wider head-room to manoeuvre its plucking style for tones colouring). The lower bass are punchy with some sort of percussive resonance quality that is differ from it’s traditional Alhambra’s deep thunderous low harmonics resonance. Among the 3 models of Serie S, the S6 has the thickest body, measuring thickness = 10.5CM, making the S6 has the deeper resonance quality than the 2 lower models.
We test drive the S6 with "Capricho Arabe" by F. Tarrega song and the guitar is capable to deliver the intricacies of Andalucian melody.

The Serie S' playability
You may not notice it until you play some difficult pieces. At a glance, the Serie S guitar's fretboard have the same width compare to the traditional models. Neck at nut width = 52 CM, the neck's circle (perimeter measurement) at nut is also = the traditional models. However, the Serie S all models have slimmer neck's circle measurement at 7th Fret position. It has - 3 mm shorter neck's circle measurement than the traditional models. Signalling Alhambra design all Serie S models with slimmer (thinner) neck moving toward the higher frets position as compare to the traditional neck shape. You may want to try to play some songs which require many bar chords holding positions, you will feel less tiring with this models. And this feature is a killer feature to those born with shorter fingers size. A very compelling offer for some buyers indeed.

In overall positioning, the Alhambra is introducing a new kind of modern guitar as an alternative to their famous traditional series and the “always sold-out” Pepe Toldo Sound Reflector series.
