This flamenco guitar has been made by the guitar maker Jesús de Jiménez, from Sevilla. His guitars have been played by very popular performers, such as Paco de Lucía, Manolo Franco, Niño de Pura… being highly regarded in the last decade. He is probably one of the most promising guitar makers today.
During the last year 2017, Jesús de Jiménez has introduced some modifications in the making process of his guitars, with which has reached the highest levels of comfort and artistic quality in every instrument made.
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, with a straight grain and beautiful tones. The finishing is elegant and sober. Specially remarkable has to be the headstock: a traditional one, but with an internal mechanism, making accurate tuning possible, without the disadvantages of the old wooden headstocks, combining thus the beauty of the latter with the accuracy and convenience of the modern mechanical headstock.
This guitar has got great character. The basses have an unbelievable depth and power, the trebles are sweet and smooth, with a sustained sound and unique projection, the harmonics that it produces are truly magic.
This guitar has got medium tension, and a reduced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard, providing the guitarist with a high degree of comfort for both hands, as well as an easy performance.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
