Prominent Critic wrote:One main difference is that all Cordoba guitars have truss rods, and no Alhambra guitars have them. So if a truss rod is important to you, that leaves Cordoba – of these two.
Prominent Critic wrote:Alhambra guitars have a larger lower bout than is found on most guitars. They also have higher action than Cordoba guitars. I find Cordoba guitars easier to play, probably because of the somewhat lower action.
Prominent Critic wrote:In general, given comparable categories, Cordoba guitars are less expensive than Alhambra. Most of them also come with a case of some kind – hard shell for the more expensive models, or else a Polyfoam case, or a gig bag. Alhambra guitars don't come with a case, unless any individual dealer decides to include one.
Sound-wise Cordoba guitars tend to have a rich bass, with a somewhat softer sound, Alhmabra with a somewhat crisper bass, and slightly better balance between bass and treble.
Hope this is helpful.
