This flamenco guitar was made in 1976 by Gerundino Fernández, a prestigious guitar maker, born in Almería. He is regarded as one of the best guitar makers ever, despite the facts of being self-taught and leading a bohemian life in his last years. His guitars have been present in stages all over with guitar performers like Paco Peña, Tomatito, Raimundo Amador…
This flamenco guitar dates from 1976, a year which belongs to what many people consider the best period in Gerundino´s life (1970-1980). It has been built with carefully selected woods: the top is made of cedar of Canada, with a straight, even and very marked grain along its whole surface, whereas perfect cypress wood has been chosen for the back and sides.
This flamenco guitar was made by the genius Gerundino Fernández , from Almeria. This extraordinary instrument is a concert guitar on a large scale, with a great sound, similarly to the sound found in guitars by maestro Manuel Reyes, but also aggressive and fresh, like Gerundino´s. A perfect guitar, in every sense: sound quality, woods, comfort… this is no doubt one of the two best guitars by maestro Gerundino we have ever seen.
The strings height and adjustment which this guitar allows is simply perfect, this permits an extremely comfortable touch in both hands and an increase in fluidity when playing the instrument.
The condition of this guitar is excellent. It only has two small cracks on the side, very light ones, practically invisible to the eyesight, and perfectly repaired with glue, without using pawns. The shellac has been slightly retouched, not affecting the thickness of the wood.
