Flamenco guitar Francisco Barba 2003

This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 2003. 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.

The sound is simply marvellous, with deep and bright basses, extraordinarily powerful. The trebles are vivid and crystal clear, attaining a very long sustain. All those features make a piece of work with unique sound quality, keeping an identical tone and volume for every single note all along the fingerboard.

This guitar has got medium tension, and a reduced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard, providing the guitarist with a high degree of comfort for both hands, as well as an easy performance.

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