This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 2011. 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 is built with superior quality woods. The German spruce sound top has a perfect veining: straight, uniform and very marked over its entire surface. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, whose beauty and quality are simply magnificent.
The sound of this guitar is really surprising. A specially flamenco timbre which is full of personality and character. This instrument has a mature sound, something that definitely evolved, with that “bouqué” the best flamenco guitars acquire along the years, it is extremely difficult to combine all those qualities in a new guitar. The basses string are really deep, with a beautiful percussive character, the trebles are crystal clear and quite powerful, with a great scope.
This flamenco guitar has got medium tension, and a perfect 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 and completly original, without any cracks or repairs.
