Flamenco guitar Francisco Barba 1995

This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 1995. 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.

This flamenco guitar has a truly amazing sound. As usual, we have supported and given recognition to the sound of Francisco Barba´s guitars, and once in a while, some true gems, works of art, appear, just like this one we are presenting you now. This instrument is perfect in every single sense: volume, scope, clarity, balance… it has everything. The minute you try it, any of you will understand the forcefulness of our words. A really special guitar with a timbre which reminds us of Miguel Rodríguez´s guitar of the year 1968, which belonged to maestro Rafael Riqueni, and which we are really lucky to have in our private collection.

The tension of the guitar is medium, and the height of the strings in saddle and fingerboard perfect, really balanced, which grants the performer a high degree of comfort for both hands.

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