Milestones Alemana 1A EF

£2,750.00 incl. VAT

The Milestones Alemagna 1A has an extremely light soundboard constructed so that a layer of Nomex is sandwiched between very thin pieces of cedar and spruce. The whole is lattice braced for the stiffness which is essential in this design.

I am really enjoying my milestones alemana – it has a fantastic sound!

A hard case with shoulder straps is included in the price.


Milestones make unique professional quality instruments. The company is the brainchild of lifelong German guitar expert Wolfgang Jellinghous who works with a team of the best Chinese luthiers to make instruments inspired by the creations of guitar-making pioneers from the 19th century to the present. This guitar is modelled directly on the instruments of Matthias Dammann who pioneered the double top soundboard for the classical guitar in the late 1980s.

The tone is rich and powerful and with a judicious choice of strings, it is well-balanced and easy to control. (We suggest Savarez Corum basses with D’Addario carbon trebles).

We have the 1AEF model in stock which features a “raised” fingerboard as well as a twentieth fret.

The design is extremely elegant: the wood chosen for back and sides has a beautiful grain and sheen, the outer purfling is a contrasting maple; and the motif on the inner purfling echoes the design of the geometrical rosette.

The machine heads are made of high quality brass with black ebony buttons.

Like other Milestones guitars, the Alemagna 1AEF represents extraordinary value for money.
