Oh, i do love my guitar. No doubt about that. I was originally wondering how such great sound could come from an instrument that by nature, is not known to produce sound comparable to higher end instruments. Granted, i don't own a higher end instrument, but the sound i'm getting now is seriously making me doubt the "factory guitars are second rate" theory. I know, that makes no sense, if i have nothing to compare to. What else am i to think when my trebles shimmer, and the basses sound like a grand piano? Every note hangs in the air after being played and melt sweetly into the next note like a marriage made in heaven.

If you are thinking of getting a handmade instrument you need to know exactly what you want. The purpose I believe of getting a handmade instrument is so you can find the instrument you want and ask for minor adjustments to tailor it to your body and physical comfortability lost playing.

There's no real market for the instrument, so retailers won't stock anything more than $300 factory Yamahas made in China. When i found my Alhambra it was sitting in a music store and i managed to "steal" it for $500. To this day i've never encountered a finer guitar in any music shop where i live (Saskatoon, SK, Canada). And i've been searching for years, just out of curiosity. My dilemna is if i ever want to upgrade i will have to either make a monumental journey to another country, or order one online. But what if i order something and it doesn't sound as good as my Alhambra when i receive it? For me to upgrade i will need a substantial improvement in all areas to justify the price. I can't imagine purchasing multiple guitars just to keep sending them back, in hopes that the right one will come along someday. It would be ironic if the right one was sitting beside me the entire time.
