The different woods in this flamenco guitar are of the top existing quality. The top is made of german spruce, with an outlined grain, straight and smooth, that endorse its exceptional quality. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, whose beauty and quality are simply perfect, the finishes are elegant and sober.
The sound of this guitar is really surprising. A specially flamenco timbre which is full of personality and character. This instrument has a mature sound, something that definitely evolved, with that “bouqué” the best flamenco guitars acquire along the years, it is extremely difficult to combine all those qualities in a new guitar.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is reduced. The height on the fret 12 is 2.1 millimeters, which allows our left hand to do its job very easily and fluently.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
