The Californian guitar maker Lester Devoe is the luthier who made this fine flamenco guitar, made in 2022. 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 canadian cedar 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.
This guitar, made by Lester Devoe, is one of the most balanced but funny instruments we have ever tried. By “balanced” we mean it gathers all these virtues we always strive to find in a guitar. For instance, this bright tone in its bass strings, but with the necessary depth to attain this strength capable of making the whole instrument vibrate against our chest and stomach when we play. The trebles sound like bells, from which all the sound comes out with surgical accuracy and tuning. To sum up, it is a unique instrument of the highest level for us to enjoy for the rest of our life.
The strings height and adjustment which this guitar allows is simply perfect, this permits an extremely comfortable touch in both hands and an increase in fluidity when playing the instrument.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
