Flamenco guitar Manuel Reyes 1992

This flamenco guitar was made by the master luthier Manuel Reyes in 1992. 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.

The different kinds of wood picked for this guitar are really exclusive, impossible to find nowadays. The german spruce of the sound top shows a truly smooth grain, straight and uniform through the entire surface. The back and sides are made of Bazilian rosewood with a straight grain and beautiful colors. The finishes are simply perfect. The guitar will be delivered with a document certifying that the Brazilian rosewood used for the construction of this guitar belongs to the species “Dalbergia Nigra”.

The sound of this flamenco guitar is truly amazing, with a quality far beyond the rest. The basses have an unbelievable depth and power, the trebles are sweet and smooth, with a sustained sound and unique projection, the harmonics that it produces are truly magic, ultimately, a perfect sound that show us once more the greatness of this master guitar-maker.

The guitar tension is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard, perfectly balanced, so it is quite a comfortable guitar for both hands.

The condition is excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
