This flamenco guitar has been made by master luthier Francisco Navarro in 2013. Francisco Navarro is one of the best makers in Mexico. In 1989 he won the 1st Prize in the Annual Contest of Paracho (Mexico). His guitars carry Torres´s influence, just like Contreras´s, Romanillos´s and so many other renowned Spanish luthiers. He became popular in Spain when maestro Vicente Amigo appeared in some shows and videos playing some of his guitars. In his concert flamenco guitars anyone can see Manuel Reyes´s influence on his development as a craftsman, with a very similar timbre to this genius from Cordoba, although preserving his own personality and identity.
Despite the admiration we feel towards this maker, we had never had any of his guitars in Solera Flamenca before. The fact of him living in Mexico makes it difficult to set the logistics and quality control properly. Its making system, as well as the quality of the finishes and its sound quality, are simply exceptional. No wonder maestro Vicente Amigo has always admired him and been really fond of him.
Its sound reminds us of Manuel Reyes, with a very flamenco timbre which shows exponentially during the strumming. This guitar, the model Vicente Amigo, is identical to the one played by the maestro so many times. It is equipped with Carlos Juan´s amplification system. A particularly comfortable guitar, really funny to use, which leaves nobody indifferent, inviting all of us to play it for hours.
This flamenco guitar has got medium tension, and a perfectly balanced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard, providing the guitarist with a high degree of comfort for both hands, as well as an easy performance.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
