For 350€ I can sell you my Alhambra 4F and you will still have money left for shipping.

hahaha when I compared Alhambra 4f with paco castillo 213f
paco castillo was much better and it sounded more flamenco but I returned it back because it had a break in one of the back braces and 10mm strings height

Ok.. then I guess this Alhambra doesn't sound as flamenco as that one but at least it has nice low action/playability and it isn't broken.

Don't expect awesome guitars for 350€. There's always a tradeoff.

Got an Alhambra 4F once from a private seller on ebay.
After it arrived I contacted the seller mentioning that he hadn´t advertised this thing truthfully as a dead chunk with strings on it. That I would sent this item straight back and that he shall certainly refund me even if the rules allowed him not to.
That is how it went.

Since then I think Granada should sue that company for misusing the name, ... and maybe Greenpeace suing them for misusing nice wood.

Any new guitar in Spain at that price point is a tourist souvenir and not a musical instrument. The Alhambra 7FC is a respected model for flamenco.

Here is another option in that price range.
(Or the previous model CG181SF).

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Demo-Model-Yamaha-CG182SF-Flamenco-Guitar-/111332628953?pt=Guitar&hash=item19ebf119d9

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-CG172SF-Flamenco-Nylon-Guitar-Solid-Spruce-Top-FREE-Tuner-and-Shipping-/201073352250?pt=Guitar&hash=item2ed0e7de3a

With a bit lower action, its an ok guitar for the price and good clean "yamaha" workmanship (not broken ). Also you can always resell the yamaha for nearly the same price.

Seriously, in this price range, you don't have many options. There is also SAEZ, AZAHAR, etc. but none of them is really a "good" guitar. The Saez 22 is ok but I think they are more expensive now, they were cheap few years ago

Mundo Flamenco (Freiburg/Germany) has a decent (especially considering the price) flamenco guitar in the 350 Euro (I think 390 Euro with, 340 Euro without case) range.
And no, I'm not affiliated with Mundo Flamenco

If I will not be able to buy a guitar in this price range I like, I think I'll try to get some woods and build a guitar for myself .
