Almansa Classical Model 402 Solid German Top with Case

Alicante, Spain

Serial Number: XFBT2W


Special note for this instrument.

Manuel Velazquez used “Bear Claw” Spruce tops on some of his guitars. It is rare and sought after by high-end guitar makers. It looks like there is an imperfection in the wood. Well maybe it is a natural imperfection. But a gift to a Luthier and musician. The graining on slabs of spruce that have this imperfection contributes to wonderful loud instruments. Well this entry level guitar has such a “Bear Claw” Spruce top. That explains that even at such a young age the bass’s this instrument produce echo through out the studio.


Top: Solid Cedar Top

Back: Laminated Mahogany

Sides: Laminated Mahogany

Neck: Mahogany

FingerBoard: Indian Rosewood

Machine Heads: Nickel Plated

Construction Method: Spanish Heel



The Almansa 402 model aesthetically stands in line between the 401 & 403 models. The fretboard, neck, back & sides are made from the same materials. The level of appointments such as the bindings and rosette are unique to each model. Unlike many other manufactures Almansa does not rely on Asian manufactures and inexpensive materials to build their entry and student models. Every Almansa instrument is made in Spain, utilizing the Spanish Heel construction method, by Almansa Luthiers, proudly displaying “Made in Spain” on the interior label.

The extra details present themselves nicely when it comes time for a recital or performing in front of friends and family.


Antonia Rose Fretted Instruments was proudly granted a USA Almansa Dealership. As the proprietor of Antonia Rose, I made a commitment to the owners of Almansa Guitarras that I would offer both existing and potential Almansa customers stellar customer service: small-shop service at internet prices.

This is not a guitar mass produced in a third-world country, displayed in a big box store, played unsupervised and sold as new with tons of rash by someone who has no investment in a potential customer’s musical journey.

This is a new, high-quality instrument that can easily be traded up or passed along to another musician.

I have other Almansa guitars in stock. My inventory almost always includes several Almansa 401, 402 & 403 Models with both solid German spruce and solid Cedar tops. Each has its own unique voice. Ideally you can come to my shop to personally compare them to each other.
