Flamenco guitar Manuel Reyes 1957

This flamenco guitar was made by the master luthier Manuel Reyes in 1957. His guitars are regarded as pieces of work, and him, as one of the greatest luthiers ever. In fact, his guitars have been (and are) played by some of the best performers ever: Vicente Amigo, Tomatito, Jose Luis Postigo, Manolo Franco, and so many others.

This flamenco guitar is built with a wood of extraordinary quality, hard to find nowadays. The top is made of german spruce and has a perfect veining regarding separation and uniformity, the back and sides are made of beautiful cypress tree, with a straight and simple veining.

The sound emerging from this guitar possesses some special features and nuances, where the flamenco touch from this luthier can be definitely found. The basses are deep and bright with an extraordinarily powerful, the trebles are vivid and crystal clear, attaining a very long sustain. All those features make a piece of work with unique sound quality that sublimely combines power volume and quality.

The tension is medium, very comfortable for both hands, due to the reduced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard.

The condition of conservation is very good. It has some fissures, four at the sound top and one more in the upper side, all perfectly repaired and documented on the attached images.
