Flamenco guitar José A. Fuentes 2017 nº109

This flamenco guitar was made by the guitar maker José A. Fuentes, from Barcelona, in 2017. He is one of the best representatives guitar makers in Catalonia. After working for more than 15 years as a carpenter, his passion for music and his talent when treating wood made him begin a new stage as guitar builder in a self-taught way, studying the construction systems of great guitar makers in history as Santos Hernández, Antonio de Torres, Miguel Rodríguez … and experimenting with new ideas and contributions that have led him to be one of the best guitarists of the current scene. His instruments reflect part of his personality, simple, elegant and minimalist always running away from the excesses of decoration, and using for the construction carefully selected woods and a long process of drying and curing.

The wood used for the top is German spruce, and spanish Cypress for back and sides. The top has a very accentuated grain, completely straight and uniform. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, with an outstanding quality and beauty.

The sound of the guitars by this craftsman and the acoustic evolution the instruments show as time goes by is amazing. In the video clip attached with seguiriyas, the perfect balance between bass strings and trebles can be noticed, and the spectacular flamenco timbre in the strumming, even beating some of the historical guitars we have had in Solera Flamenca.

This guitar has the highly-valued “rebound beating” on the right hand, combined with fantastic softness on the left one, thus accomplishing the “perfect instrument”, should we want to spend hours and hours playing non-stop with a nice feeling of ease.

The condition is excellent and completely original, without any cracks or repairs whatsoever.
