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.
This is the last new guitar we will receive from this maker during this year 2023. A guitar which, as we have commented in previous articles, is more interesting and complex than the instruments made by Manuel Reyes senior. This is explained by the fact that it represents the “white” concert guitar which Manuel Reyes senior masterfully made, but with higher scope and specially thick and powerful trebles. It could be considered better in terms of flamenco character. Considering it all, this work of art is placed on the very top of the flamenco guitar making.
We would like to highlight the wood, with more than 50 years´ curation, employed for these guitars, and the use of hot glue for the whole process. It results in a perfect instrument, with an unusual acoustic evolution, owing to the crystallization process of this kind of glue, which is assumed after a year.
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.
