The A8 is a classical guitar for the serious player who doesn't want to spend too much money. It's got Rosewood back and sides for rich, complex character and the Cedar top gives you all the warmth you want from a Classical. It's also hand assembled by master luthiers in Spain, so you know you're getting a fantastic instrument.
Unlike a lot of cheaper classical instruments, it has its neck and headblock carved from a single piece of wood increasing the overall tone and sustain because you haven't used 2 separate pieces of wood just for the neck. It's a time-consuming process that Admira pride themselves on doing.
Here's what Admira say about the A8
The Admira A8 is a classic combination of a Solid Cedar top and Indian Rosewood back and sides to ensure a full-bodied, rich tone. The A8 features a Mahogany neck and an Indian Rosewood fingerboard and gold machine heads and is finished in high-gloss.
The A8 is crafted with the traditional spanish heel neck joint which is considered the most highly developed neck joint in guitar construction. It is significantly more complex than a glued neck, but the sonic benefits are worth the effort. When building a guitar with a Spanish neck, neck and headblock are carved from one piece of wood.
