New - with gloss finish and looking more expensive than they are in reality.
These guitars are extra-ordinarily good at the price. They have unusually good bass depth, plenty of volume and a warm, full tone with quite decent clarity. One of our teacher clients who recommends them to his students says - "A number of other teachers' students were playing Alhambras, but they were blown away by the Paco Castillos and Altimiras. They are amazing at the price. Actually, amazing full stop! I really couldn't believe the sounds I was hearing from such modestly priced instruments." .... sentiments echoed by all our customers who bought them.
