The Alhambra model 1C with the old gold sticker on head-stock is an obsolete model, it was discontinued from factory since Dec. 2011
Although looks a little bit out-dated (with square gold paper sticker, old label, old fashion 3 non scalloped top bracing), this is still the old style of Alhambra 1C since pre year 2011 ! solid red cedar, mahogany back/side, single maple binding at top with the simplest 3 top bracing no scallop, no quarter sawn, a basic model with basic standard. This model has typical loud and boxy tones which then was enhanced in the New Spirit model 1C.
Please check our New Spirit model 1C
AVAILABILITY : No Stock, all were sold out. We do not intend to order this old model as the new spirit model 1C available since March 2012.
However it maybe orderable latest by this March 2013 as Alhambra' factory may have stock left-over in hand from old Dec. 2011 production date.
Note : We also have the new 2012 version of model 1C (pls check the new version pictures & see the differences) that offers the fresh looks with most updated design version of this beginner model.
We are taking orders from local schools, the visitors from neighbouring countries and walk-in clienteles. The 1C is the right choice for beginners who want to get their first taste of a Spain made guitar.
Model 1C is a simple Spain classic guitar, inner top bracing is 3 fins Torres style bracing, enabling maximal fibration of the guitar top when you pluck any strings. The simple 3 fins bracings have super light advantages on the top, easier of manufacturing process allow the guitar sound hole to project the sound as much as possible without too many burden on the top. The plus point, the sound output is so loud, the disadvantage factors are : due to low entry model, every notes are produced loudly but somehow maybe a little bit lack of character and producing ringing notes at higher than fret 12 position maybe a challange for simple 3 fins bracings architecture. The trade off is lower price point, the most value for money Spain made guitar is here !. 
If you look for a more refine all round tone character with enough ample of head-room for your classic tone coloring then it is time to skip this model 1C and jump to my guitar anatomy analyses belong to Alhambra model 4P A (new 2012 solid spruce top).
However, the 1C do a good job for beginners at this price tag.
