Flamenco guitar Francisco Barba 1999

This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 1999. 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 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.

The sound of the flamenco guitar is truly magical, has a personality and character that distinguishes it from the rest. The basses are deep and with that particular “dry” and “hollow” sound, typical in the best flamenco guitars. The trebles are crystalline and with an endless sustain.

The tension 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 is excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
