Flamenco guitar Francisco Barba 1966

This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 1966. 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 was made with great woods, difficult to obtain nowadays. 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.

The sound is amazingly good and with an insurmountable flamenco character, deep internal strings and a precious percussive background. Trebles are crystal clear and powerful, with a great sustain and scope. Sincerely, we do believe it´s one of the best “Barba´s” guitars we have ever seen.

The tension is medium, and the height of the strings in fingerboard is reduced, which makes this guitar really comfortable for both hands.

The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and original, without any cracks or repairs.
