This flamenco guitar was made by the master luthier Manuel Reyes in 2002. 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 belonged to maestro Vicente Amigo´s personal collection. Around 8 years ago, he visited his friend, the guitarist José Luis Postigo, the owner of one of the best guitars in our country. After trying several guitars of his collection, Vicente became interested in one of them, so he offered to exchange it for a guitar made by Manuel Reyes. José Luis accepted the trade, and he also asked for him to sign the top of the guitar, so as to be able to prove its origin. In the images attached, you can see some photos of the day where these events took place. SEE NEW
