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. 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. To be honest, it is one of the best new flamenco guitars we have ever had of this artisan.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is very reduced. The height on the fret 12 is 2.2 mm, thereby ensuring an extraordinary level of comfort.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
