Flamenco guitar Francisco Barba 1969

This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 1969. 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 a wood of extraordinary quality, hard to find nowadays. The top is made of german spruce and has a perfect veining regarding separation and uniformity, the back and sides are made of beautiful cypress tree, with a straight and simple veining.

Its sound is more than wonderful. To be honest, it is one of the best flamenco guitars we have ever had of this artisan. The bass is very deep and powerful, and the trebles are brilliant and crystalline, with a great scope.

The tension of this flamenco guitar is average and has an immediate response. Very comfortable in both hands due to the reduced height of the strings on the bridge and the fingerboard. Besides, we can feel the extra comfort of having such a light guitar (hardly heavier than a kg.)

The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any cracks or repairs whatsoever.
