This flamenco guitar was made in 1977 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 1977, 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 german spruce, 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 is extraordinary, with an unbeatable character. The basses are powerful, with extraordinary depth. The trebles are crystal clear and bright, with great scope and sustain, and showing a perfect balance between both of them.
The tension of the guitar is middle, and the height of the strings in saddle and fingerboard perfect, really balanced, which grants the performer a high degree of comfort for both hands.
The condition is very good and completely original. It just has a crack located on the lower part of the top, perfectly repaired and backed up with evidence on the images attached. The guitar has been slightly touched up with french polish, without affecting the original thickness in any single way, but keeping its excellent sound features intact.
