This flamenco guitar was made by Marcelino López Nieto in 1964. Marcelino López Nieto is one of the most representative and widely respected luthiers in Spain. Actually, his name is on the Summerfield list, where the names of best guitar makers are present since 1800. Just like so many luthiers in Spain, Marcelino worked as a cabinetmaker before he devoted himself to the instrument making. Practically self-taught, Marcelino López is one of the few makers in Madrid with no influence from Ramirez school, and his guitars are admired and praised by guitar players and lovers all over the world.
Amazing woods can be found in this piece of work: German spruce for the top, with a very straight and even grain all along its surface. The back and sides are made of Brazilian rosewood, an aesthetically marvelous wood due to its tones and grain, providing the guitar with great beauty and elegance.
This guitar is part of the reduced set of guitars which this genius craftsman made for flamenco, as he devoted most of his career to the classical facet. A guitar with a making system clearly inspired in Santos Hernández, which is more than ideal for both classical and flamenco concert.
Despite presenting a height of strings a bit higher than the usual for a flamenco guitar, the softness of the beating is worth remarking (for both hands), resulting in extreme comfort and ease to play for performers of any level.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any cracks or repairs whatsoever.
