Alhambra: 5FP-US(Item ID: 5FP-US Serial#: xLBLGD)
Carlos Piñana Flamenco Negra with Cedar Top and Rosewood Back and Sides and Open Pore Satin Finish
From the Alhambra website:
"The model 5 FP OP Piñana is born from the fruit of a collaboration between the flamenco guitarist Carlos Piñana and Alhambra Guitars.
The model 5 FP OP Piñana is a flamenco guitar called flamenco negra. Instead of cypress for the back and sides, Indian rosewood is used. And while spruce is commonly used for the top of a flamenco guitar, in this case it is important to highlight the choice of solid Cedar for the guitar's top. These materials were chosen to produce a more versatile flamenco guitar. With a new bracing design, the Alhambra 5FP Piñana not only has a distinctive flamenco personality, but its rounder sound allows for easy interpretation of different styles as well.
In the construction of this guitar, Alhambra has used their open pore finish system. This system offers a natural satin finish where the pores of the wood remain open, and because this finish method requires less varnish, a powerful sound is achieved."
