We had that before. Most likely you saw a 1 OP. OP=open pore, a simpler finish. So it’s a version of a Alhambra 1, not a 10.
Actually upon closer look at a comment on the gc website. Someone said "it's a 1 op , not a 10p" there was a "manufacture reply" saying "it IS a 10p guitar"
It's really just Alhambra's poor model numbering. I saw the page you mentioned, and the reply still says "1O P" with the letter "O". I don't know why they space the characters that way. This is a One-oh-pee, not a ten-pee. Back and sides are mahogany, finish is open pore, etc. The 10P (ten-pee) has solid rosewood back/sides, a 20th fret extension, gloss finish, etc. While they do market that now as the "10 Premier," the "1 OP" still gets mislabeled as a "10 P" all over the web. It's understandable since other Alhambra student models still use the #P format (e.g., 7P, 9P). I think Alhambra has started using "Z Nature" instead of "1 OP" for this model outside the US (see their international web site), but I don't understand why they haven't changed this within the US.
