Flamenco guitar Gerundino Fernández 1977

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.

This flamenco guitar is really spectacular, and goes to show, once more, that this luthier´s levels of sound and making quality are absolutely out of this world. It is a concert guitar purely speaking, with a great sound, similar to the one found in guitars like Manuel Reyes´s, but with the aggressiveness and flamenco tone of the guitars made by Gerundino. It has a big and lively sound, dry and brilliant, giving us the sensation of ‘holding nothing back’—a true gem!

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