This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 2019. He is regarded as one of the best guitar makers ever and his guitars have been (and are) praised and used by some of the best guitarists in the world: Niño de Pura, Manuel Molina, Rafael Riqueni, Pepe Habichuela… and so many others.
This flamenco guitar is built with superior quality woods. The German spruce sound top has a perfect veining: straight, uniform and very marked over its entire surface. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, whose beauty and quality are simply magnificent. The edging work details and finishing are simply perfect.
The sound emerging from this guitar possesses some special features and nuances, where the flamenco touch from this luthier can be definitely found. Its quality sound is really amazing, this is undoubtedly one of the finest guitars we have ever seen from this maker, a perfect balance between basses and trebles and an incredibly flamenco timbre that sublimely combines power and volume with quality and perfect pitch with that particular “dry” and “hollow” sound, typical in the best flamenco guitars.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is very reduced. The height on the fret 12 is 2,1 mm, one of the lowest ones possible in a guitar, which allows our left hand to do its job very easily and fluently.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
