Flamenco guitar Francisco Barba 2017

This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 2017. 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.

We are particularly happy that we acquired this flamenco guitar, as it is made of Brazilian rosewood, with a long time curation and a really special cane-like tone. This kind of grain in Brazilian rosewood, unlike the darker and more homogeneous one, has a lower density, thus providing the guitar with a more aggressive timbre, and more lightness. In fact, we have confirmed these qualities by ourselves through these years, and it is one of the things which led us to order our craftsmen the making of these guitars with this kind of wood.

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.

This flamenco guitar has got medium tension, and a perfectly balanced 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 flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
