This flamenco guitar was made by the luthier Javier Mejías in 2016. Guitar maker by calling, he started this profession with Rafael López Porras, a craftsman from Cadiz, and later with José Ángel Chacón, from Malaga. Once he learned both making processes, he deeply studied the different factors defining the beating and the acousting behaviour of the guitar. Consequently, he would design his own templates with which he currently makes his intruments.
The woods used in this flamenco guitar are extraordinary. The top is made of canadian cedar, with an outlined grain, straight and smooth, that endorse its exceptional quality. The back and sides are made of Indian rosewood with breathtakingly beautiful shades, providing the guitar with great beauty and elegance.
Regarding the sound of this flamenco guitar, both its clarity and volume are worth mentioning. Its timbre is not particularly flamenco, although it is not exactly classical, either. Sometimes we desribe it as “mixed guitar”, which makes it an all-purpose instrument to play any musical composition, regardless of the genre, both classical or flamenco.
The tension of the guitar is medium, 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 of this flamenco guitar is really good. It only has a small superficial crack on the top, practically invisible to the eyesight and perfectly repaired and backed up with documentary evidence in the images attached.
