Flamenco guitar Arcángel Fernández 1960

This flamenco guitar was built by the master luthier Arcángel Fernández in the year 1960, considered to be one of the best guitar makers in history. His instruments are really hard to get, since Japan collectors bought almost all of them. His guitars are truly admired by guitar makers, collectors and guitarists all around the world.

The different woods in this flamenco guitar are of the top existing quality. The top are made of german spruce has a totally straight and even grain, which is quite accentuated. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, whose beauty and quality are simply magnificent. Arcángel Fernández was extremely selective as regards the choice of the woods for the guitar making. He always seeked for nothing but excellence in acoustics and beauty, which can be appreciated in every single guitar he made all along his career.

The sound of this guitar is simply spectacular. It has that particular timbre, so characteristic, distinguishing all his guitars. The bourdons are hoarse and deep, with a somewhat “hollow” sound which we curiously find in its trebles, too. This enhances and counterbalances the overall qualities brilliantly. An instrument with spotless sound quality, comfort, finishes, and condition, satisfying the demands of any performer and/or collector.

The tension is medium, very comfortable for both hands, due to the reduced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard.

The condition of this guitar is excellent and completely original, without any crack or repair whatsoever.
