This flamenco guitar was made by the master luthier Manuel Reyes (son) in 2022. Manuel Reyes Maldonado´s son, he succeeded in learning and developing his father´s teachings, after sharing the workshop, and producing equally good guitars, regarding both the making and sound. It must be remarked the fact that in those first years of learning, those guitars were made by father and son together.
The wood used for the top is German spruce, and spanish Cypress for back and sides. The top has a very accentuated grain, completely straight and uniform. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, with an outstanding quality and beauty.
The day has come! After more than two years, we have finally received these two guitars made by Manuel Reyes Jr, which we ordered with so much excitement, convinced by the spectacular sound we found in the very few guitars made by genius luthier, only available in the second-hand market.
It is well-known that Manuel Reyes senior was extremely refined, even more than his son. However, regarding acoustics, we believe his son made an even higher-quality product, as it represents the “white” concert guitar which his father attained, although with higher scope, and trebles particularly thick and powerful. Additionally, Manuel Reyes Jr reached a really personal timbre in his instruments, which makes it easy to differentiate them from his father´s. Although the same essence still remains, the son´s instruments remind us more of the essence of Gerundino´s guitars of the 70s.
On this occasion it is impossible for us to distinguish these two guitars received. These two gems are such wonders that they are simply unbeatable, impossible to improve. Their scope and volume? Completely out of this world, they emit flamenco essence in every chord. Their trebles are incredibly thick and powerful, particularly on the third string, which is especially difficult to find in any guitar.
The strings height and adjustment which this guitar allows is simply perfect, this permits an extremely comfortable touch in both hands and an increase in fluidity when playing the instrument.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
