Flamenco guitar Juan Montero 1992 nº782

This flamenco guitar was built by the well-known guitar maker Juan Montero Aguilera, from Córdoba in 1992. Rafael Riqueni, Vicente Amigo, Tomatito, or Luis Calderito are just some of the few performers who have praised and played his magnificent guitars.

Unfortunately, Juan Montero passed away this very year (2021), putting an end to one of the most representative firms of Cordovan craftsmanship.

The quality of his woods is always an outstanding aspect of this guitar maker’s guitars. Given his friendship with his colleague Manuel Reyes, they often went together in search of wood for their respective workshops.

This flamenco guitar delivers a really special sound. Juan Montero’s guitars stand out for having a very personal stamp in both their construction and their sound; a very ‘Cordoban’ flamenco sound with a great volume and acoustic quality. They have thick and deep strings with a brilliant timbre and clear trebles with good projection. Although indeed his guitars did not reach the level of quality and reputation of Manuel Reyes or Miguel Rodríguez, we can consider him, without a doubt, one of the best artisans of our country and a reference in the history of the Cordoban guitar of all times.

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 excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
