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 guitar was one of the last Blanca’s Manuel worked on before fully retiring.
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 coming out of this guitar is simply spectacular, because of the volume in particular and the quality in general: the basses are powerful and deep, with an incredibly flamenco sound. The trebles are well-defined, with an amazing scope, all of which makes a guitar with a very characteristic sound, which will make the performer or collector fall in love with it instantly.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in the bridge pin and fret board is perfectly balanced, ensuring great comfort in both hands and easing the guitarist performing.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any cracks or repairs whatsoever.
