Almansa Model 403 Cedar Top On Vacation: Closed Until July 24th
Almansa Model 403 Cedar Top
Seasoned players can make an inferior guitar sound good. Musicians will be demoralized by trying to learn on a poor quality guitar. An inferior guitar will not stay in tune and will have poor intonation across the fretboard. No matter how much budding musicians practice, newly learned songs will sound out-of-tune and these players will quickly become discouraged. Inferior guitars will surely set-up a musician for failure.

Antonia Rose Fretted Instruments was proudly granted a USA Almansa distributorship. As the proprietor of Antonia Rose Fretted Instruments I made a commitment to the owners of Almansa Guitars that I would offer both existing and potential Almansa customers only stellar customer service. Our customer reviews confirm this.
Regardless of what others claim, a Luthier cannot setup a guitar for you without both of you meeting. I say this with over 40 years of professional playing and teaching. Every guitar plays differently and when shipped to another climate, the action will change. When an instrument leaves our shop it is ready to be played. We ask that you let this wonderful new instrument adjust to its new climate for a short period of time while being playing. If there are any dislikes call us. We will guide you through minor adjustments. We’ve included a spare set of strings in the event you want to bring this instrument to a Luther for final adjustment.
