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.
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 edging work details and finishing are simply perfect.
Specially remarkable has to be the headstock: a traditional one, but with an internal mechanism, making accurate tuning possible, without the disadvantages of the old wooden headstocks, combining thus the beauty of the latter with the accuracy and convenience of the modern mechanical headstock.
This flamenco guitar has belonged to a private collector. This fact results in finding a guitar in a pristine condition, but with all the tailpieces and construction materials perfectly crystallised and settled, thus achieving an instrument with a very mature sound, a characteristic that we usually find in Francisco Barba’s new guitars, but that here we see significantly magnified.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is reduced. The height on the fret 12 is 2.2 millimeters, which allows our left hand to do its job very easily and fluently.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
