This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 2021. 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.
The Francisco Barba’s guitars we have usually had in possession had been built in cedar and Brazilian rosewood, but we find truly interesting the combination of cedar and Indian rosewood, since it gives us a brightness and speed of response closer to cypress but with the projection and resonance of a concert guitar. These are instruments of the highest quality made by one of the best guitar makers in history; a living legend of Spanish guitar making.
This flamenco guitar has belonged to the genius of rhythm, the master Diego del Morao. Since he acquired it in 2021 from Solera Flamenca, this guitar has accompanied him in all his performances and recordings to date. A truly extraordinary guitar with ‘many hours and experiences’, which have undoubtedly contributed to evolve and ‘make’ its sound, to the point that it was hard to believe when we saw it again. An extraordinary volume, an overwhelmingly flamenco character and a ‘dry’ and ‘hollow’ timbre typical of the best guitars over 40 years old… it has it all! All in a relatively new guitar and very well cared for by the maestro. Undoubtedly: A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY.
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 2.1 millimeters, which allows our left hand to do its job very easily and fluently.
The condition is excellent, being completely original and without any single kind of crack or repair whatsoever.
