Flamenco guitar Francisco Barba 2018 (with CITES)

This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 2018. 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.

The different woods in this flamenco guitar are of the top existing quality. The top is made of german spruce, with an outlined grain, straight and smooth, that endorse its exceptional quality. The back and sides are made of Brazilian rosewood, with a straight grain and beautiful tones. The edging work details and finishing are simply perfect. Specially remarkable has to be the headstock: a traditional one, but with an internal mechanism, making accurate tuning possible, without the disadvantages of the old wooden headstocks, combining thus the beauty of the latter with the accuracy and convenience of the modern mechanical headstock.

Its sound is really marvelous. The basses are deep and strumming, and the trebles, bright and crystal clear, with a sustained sound, a perfect balance between basses and trebles and an incredibly flamenco timbre that sublimely combines power and volume with quality and perfect pitch.

The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is very reduced, which grants the performer a high degree of comfort for both hands.

The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
