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, impossible to obtain nowadays. 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.
The sound of this guitar is simply spectacular. It has that particular timbre, so characteristic, distinguishing all his guitars. The bourdons are hoarse and deep, with a somewhat “hollow” sound which we curiously find in its trebles, too. This enhances and counterbalances the overall qualities brilliantly. The volume, quality and warmth it gives off, along with its distinct character, take this instrument to the rank of masterpiece.
The tension is medium, very comfortable for both hands, due to the reduced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any crack or repair whatsoever.
