I am having a hard time deciding which of these guitars to buy, which one do you guys recommend me? Well or another guitar that is in 150 euros price range.
Here are the links to the guitars:
Ibanez: http://www.ibanez.co.jp/world/country/frame_spain.html
Alhambra: http://www.alhambrasl.com/fremp_i.htm
To see the Alhambra go to products and then is the 1c under classic.
Thank you.

Never heard of the Alhambra. Can't tell from the top of my head which guitar the G200E is either. Links to pictures and specs would help anyone who wants to guide you.

Well the safest bet would be to go for the Ibanez. They make decent entry level guitars, suitable/comfortable for practice.

I disagree.
Alhambra is a leading guitar manufacturer from Spain.
So if you're after a top notch Spanish guitar, go Alhambra. laugh.gif

Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.

These two guitars are quite similar, Ibanez has mahogany sides and back, while Alhambra has laminated mahogany, both have solid tops, and Ibanez have built-in tuner

If you want to play classical music, I think Alhambra would be better choice, while Ibanez would be more all-round solution.. but anyway you have to try both guitars and play it for a while in a shop and see what sounds better for you, and what feels best for your hands smile.gif

The most important is that the guitar has a solid top, and you will know if it really has if you look in the sound hole, just below the fretboard, you should see the wood stripes if it is a solid one.

I've never heard of Alahambra myself, but the specs seems ok.
Ibanez is always a safe bet though. You always get quality.

I have an Alhambra classic guitar, they are good classical spanish guitars. Mine is 2C and is 15 years old now. Plays and sounds good!

I would buy a Spanish guitar made in Spain if you are to follow the classical guitar route, after all classic guitar is Spanish guitar wink.gif

I don't know any of the guitars but "made in Spain" does it for me. I'd get the Alhambra straight off.
