Flamenco guitar Gerundino Hijo 2018

This flamenco guitar was made by the luthier Gerundino Fernández Llamas, son of the great maker Gerundino Fernández, in 2018. Born in 1974 in Almería, he started helping his father with guitar making since he was really young. He helped with tasks such as sanding woods, put pawns, glue bottoms and tops, etc). His link with wood goes beyond guitar making. That is, he knows a lot about this material, since he used to go with his uncle Eladio Fernández for spotting, cutting and selecting the best woods, which his father would later employ for his guitar making. For several years he devoted himself to the in-depth study of the guitar, and to a comprehensive revision of his father´s whole career. In 2015 he decided to continue the family tradition, thus starting to make his own guitars, using the techniques, tools and woods inherited from his father.

The different kinds of wood used in its manufacturing are of an extraordinary quality, the sound top is made of German spruce, with an even and straight grain on the entire surface. The back and sides are made of beautiful cypress tree, with a straight and homogeneous veining.

This flamenco guitar belongs to the first stage of Gerundino’s guitar son’s, but despite this, there is an amazingly high level of quality wich corresponds with the development we have been able to observe in the artisan over recent years. A guitar with a high quality sound and volume wich is at the sametime versatile and “fun”, capable of satisfying the need of an accompanying and concert guitarist.

The action and height of strings on the neck on the fingerboard is somewhat less than we would have liked but even so the comfort it offers to both hands is surprising.

The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent, without any cracks or repairs.
