This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 2020. 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.
The sound emerging from this guitar possesses some special features and nuances, where the flamenco touch from this luthier can be definitely found. Francisco Barba is, for us, the luthier with the most consistent and linear quality career in the last 100 years. In fact, there is no bad “Barba”!! That is to say, his guitars always keep surprising us, leaving nobody left indifferent, as soon as they play or listen to them.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is very reduced, providing us with a high level of comfort for both hands, as well as simplicity for the performance itself.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
