Flamenco guitar Marcelino López Nieto 2ª

This flamenco guitar comes from Marcelino López Nieto’s workshop, but it was built by Vicente Camacho. During the 70’s, it was common among the great guitar makers to order guitars from other good craftsmen in order to sell them under their own label as second-hand guitars. Miguel Rodríguez did this with Jerónimo Peña and Paulino Bernabé, and Marcelino with Vicente Camacho, in the same way as other great guitar makers kept this kind of deal and commercial relations with other colleagues in the trade. 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.

Its sound doesn’t reflect in any sense the current concept of a second-hand guitar. This guitar is on par with any of the top guitars we have in stock. This is a guitar that remarkably stands out because of its strong volume, along with its enchanting timbre that captivates from the first chord.

The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard very balanced, achieving a high degree of comfort for both hands.

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