Flamenco guitar Francisco Barba 1994

This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 1994. 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 woods chosen for this magnificent guitar are Canadian cedar for the top, with an even and straight grain, and Brazilian rosewood for back and sides, with a chocolate tone and a beautiful fabric. These woods have been selected due to its extraordinary beauty and sound quality, being the latter the main feature for Francisco Barba when it comes to select the woods for his guitars.

Its sound is extraordinary, with deep basses, and well-defined and vivid trebles, all of which makes a very balanced set of qualities with a unique sound quality, maintaining an identical tone and volume in every single note along the fingerboard.

The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of the strings in the saddle and fingerboard really balanced, being highly comfortable for both hands and providing us with an easy execution.

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