This flamenco guitar was made by Manuel Fernandez Fernandez in 1979. He was one of the first guitar makers in the flamenco guitar school in Granada, and master of some of the current guitar makers in Granada, such as Jose Fernandez (his son), or Aaron Garcia, for example.
Manuel Fernández Fernández´s guitars always had looked really interesting to us, as regards sound and making quality. In his instruments we can see some details revealing the admiration and respect this luthier had for the firm “Hermanos Conde” from Madrid at that time, with a shape and carving in its head intending to imitate the famous “half moon”, and an almost identical rosette to the one on the head of the guitar Maestro Paco de Lucia used, made by Esteso´s nephews.
Regarding sound, we can also see it is far from the typical sound of guitar from Granada, moving much closer to the character and personality of the instruments by the prestigious firm from Madrid.
The woods employed for this guitar is German spruce for the top and indian rosewood for back and sides. The top has got a very marked, straight and even grain along its whole surface. The back and sides are made of indian rosewood with an outstanding quality and beauty.
Its tension is middle-low, with very balanced height of strings in saddle and fingerboard. Therefore, it is a highly comfortable guitar for both hands, and really easy to play for the performer.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent, being completely original and without any single kind of crack or repair whatsoever.
