Oops...I replied in your other post. Since you are looking at the Abeto, the sound would not be loud, sweet and muddy, as for the Cedro.

I had the 1C-A...wonderful guitar. Sounded very good, so I think the 2C-A would be better.

I sell Alhambra guitars, so I can tell you that there is not enough difference between the 2C and the 3C to spend the extra money on the 3C. Also - Mahogany is a fine wood for guitars - it looks goods and is an excellent wood for the back, sides, and neck.

I think you would be very happy with the Alhambra 2C.

Prominent Critic,
Thanks for your response ...ok maybe this week will buy it .I have been thinking of buying this... since last year... I tried several other brand made in China. and really I can hear the volume of Alhambra is louder and more refine. its sounds good to my ears.... By the way I thought this mahogany wood is for ukelele. this is the reason of my hesitation. Well, reservation is complete, guitar is available as i said I will go for it. today or tommorow that guitar will fall in my good hands... many many thanks....
