Flamenco guitar José Morilla Díaz 2024

This flamenco guitar was built by the luthier José Morilla Díaz in the year 2024. José Morilla Díaz was born in Aguadulce (Seville) in 1958. At the age of 21, he specialized as a cabinetmaker, a job that would occupy him for 40 years and in which he demonstrated his skill with wood. Throughout his career, he had an interest in guitar and its construction but was unable to pursue it due to personal reasons. After closing his cabinetmaking workshop at the age of 60 and establishing a special friendship with the master artisan Jesús de Jiménez, from the neighboring town of Gilena, who opened the doors of his workshop to him and gradually taught him this wonderful craft. Thanks to José’s continuous curiosity, combined with the constant support of his friend Jesús de Jiménez, in 2018 he began to build a guitar for his daughters, thus beginning his journey as a luthier.

The woods employed for the making of this guitar are of extraordinary beauty and quality. For example, those woods have been used after a careful seasoning process. The top has been made of canadian cedar, with a straight and even grain. The back and sides are made of cypress wood with an aesthetically perfect cut.

This is a flamenco guitar, probably one of the best value options on the market. It’s a completely handmade guitar with top-quality woods, excellent finishes, very comfortable and enjoyable to play, and with magnificent sound quality, capable of surprising even the most demanding guitarist. A guitar with a very flamenco, fast, and bright tone that reminds us of guitar masters like Sabicas or Serranito, artists who used a cedar “blanca” guitar in most of their concerts and recordings throughout their careers.

The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the heights of the strings in fingerboard and saddle are perfect, providing us with such a high degree of comfort that one will be delighted.

The condition of this flamenco guitar is brand new.
