Flamenco guitar Enrique Sanfeliu 1933

This guitar was made by the luthier Enrique Sanfeliu in 1933. Enrique Sanfeliu was born in Valencia in 1882. After listening to Francisco Tárrega play, he decided to devote his life to the guitar, not only as an interpreter, but also as a maker. He studied with Manuel Loscos, Tárrega´s disciple, and his studies rekindled his desire to make his own guitars. Later, he would move to Barcelona to work at Juan Estruch´s guitar workshop. Enrique Sanfeliu befriended Enrique García, who shared his making method with Sanfeliu, deeply influencing him as a luthier.

This guitar is made with extraordinarily high quality woods, which is remarkable, to say the least, if we bear in mind the date of its making, when high quality woods were really hard to find. Introducing a construction system based on the school of D. Antonio de Torres, as it closely resembles a guitar from the second period of this luthier that we had the opportunity to see and study a few years ago.

The sound coming out of this guitar is absolutely marvellous. One can hear its surrounding sound and a very particular scope, thanks to the inner sounding board. Enrique Sanfeliu´s guitars have a really emotional sound, with unmatched sweetness and warmth.

The strings height and adjustment which this guitar allows is simply perfect, this permits an extremely comfortable touch in both hands and an increase in fluidity when playing the instrument.

The condition is very good and completely original, only has a small crack in the soundboard top and a repair on the side, next to the heel, as perfectly shown in the attached images.
