Flamenco guitar
Manuel de la Chica 1965

This flamenco guitar is made by Maestro Manuel de la Chica, regarded as the most important guitar maker Granada so far. His style and sound quality have been often compared to Maestro Marcelo Barbero’s guitars, as they worked together on some guitars Santos Hernández left unfinished when passing away. In 1973, already a renowned guitar maker, he had no choice but to leave his occupation, due to health complications caused by the inhalation of dust and chemicals. His guitars are recognized and praised by collectors, guitar makers and guitarists all around the world.

The woods employed for this guitar are extraordinarily good. The german spruce top has got a very marked, straight and even grain. The back and sides, made of curly maple, are of the highest possible quality in the market, both for its beauty and sound qualities. The finishes are simple, sober and elegant.

The sound coming out of this piece of work is something worth listening to: powerful and deep basses, the harmonics that it produces are truly magic. It has that particular timbre, so characteristic, distinguishing all his guitars. It makes a very particular kind of sound, as it has got its own character and deeply flamenco.

The tension is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard, perfectly balanced, so it is quite a comfortable guitar for both hands. Besides, we can feel the extra comfort of having such a light guitar (hardly heavier than a kg).

The condition is excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
