VICENTE AMIGO´S guitar: MANUEL REYES 1992
In Solera Flamenca we offer our customers one of the guitars belonging to the Maestro Vicente Amigo, one of the most representative leading figures of the flamenco guitar in history. A real genius of this instrument, making a huge contribution to the evolution and dissemination of this genre all around the world.
It is a guitar made by Manuel Reyes in 1992, one of the best luthiers in Spanish history. This guitar belonged to Vicente Amigo for five years, using it for special occasions, such as the recording of some tracks in his albums during these five years.
This is all exposed and documented on a note Vicente Amigo wrote himself: “This guitar of 1992 was mine for five years. I recorded a few songs from different albums. I hope you like it. Regards”. This note and the pictures will be delivered, along with the guitar.

Talking about Vicente Amigo means talking about one of the greatest geniuses nowadays. Flamenco art would not be the same without him, just like Tomatito or Paco de Lucía. His contribution to the guitar in particular and to music in general is amazing: his own style, unprecedented character, all of which allows the audience to identify his sound after a couple of notes.
¿Who hasn´t heard the expression “It sounds like Paco”, or “It sounds like Vicente”? They are geniuses of our time, with such a big scope covered that it is practically impossible for a guitarist to compose something without reminding us of these Maestros, largely due to his falsetas.
In Solera Flamenca we offer our customers a unique and exclusive opportunity: Owning a guitar which belonged to a true genius of the flamenco guitar. One of the greatest ones ever.
Para despedir estas líneas os dejamos con un video del maestro Vicente Amigo tocando algunas de sus composiciones donde quedan latentes las dotes creativas y el virtuosismo de esta figura esencial y fundamental de la guitarra flamenca.
