This flamenco guitar was made by the master luthier Manuel Reyes in 2007. 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 used to belong to the guitarist Antonio Rey. He has played it in several recording studios and different stages all around the world for the last year. A one-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to own one of the most representative guitars from one of the most important flamenco guitarists nowadays.
The Woods of this guitar are marvellous. The German spruce top has got a perfectly even and straight grain. The back and sides are made of cypress, also with a high-quality straight grain. The finishes are the typical in Manuel Reyes´ work: simple and elegant.
The sound is extraordinary, with an unbeatable character. The basses are powerful, with a dry and percussive timbre. The trebles are crystal-clear, with an unbeatable scope and definition. The strumming of this guitar is just spotless. This is a feature we can find in Manuel Reyes’s guitars: a broken and bright timbre which shows us and defines the term “FLAMENCO GUITAR”.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is reduced, providing us with a high degree of comfort for both hands.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any cracks or repairs whatsoever.
