The Californian guitar maker Lester Devoe is the luthier who made this fine flamenco guitar, made in 2009. Lester Devoe is regarded as one of the best flamenco guitar makers in the world. In fact, his pieces of work have been praised and played by Paco de Lucia, Vicente Amigo, Sabicas… both in recording studios and live concerts.
The woods of this guitar are simply extraordinary. The German spruce top has got a very marked, straight and even grain. The back and sides are made of cypress of the highest quality, concerning both the cut and the excellent wood seasoning this guitar maker gives all his woods for years. The finishes are simple and sober, but also elegant.
Its spectacular sound and marked character are other great features of this work of art. The basses are quite powerful but also deep. The trebles are vivid, crystal clear, with great scope and sustain. Personally, we do believe it´s one of the best guitars we have ever played.
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 2.2 millimeters, which allows our left hand to do its job very easily and fluently.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
