This flamenco guitar was made by the legendary guitar maker Miguel Rodríguez Beneyto in his workshop, located in 15 Alfaros Street (Córdoba) in 1942. His guitars are objects of desire for collectors and performers all around the world because of both its meticulous construction and the personality they have.
This flamenco guitar has belonged to Jose Luis Parreño’ s personal collection, who ordered it from Miguel Rodriguez Beneyto, a very good friend. It is a guitar known as “segunda” regarding the kinds of wood used in its construction, which do not have the same quality as the “primera” guitars or concert guitars. Regardless of this, there were many professionals at that time who used this guitars given the closer sound, sometimes comparable to “primera” guitars but at a more reasonable price. The different kinds of wood picked for this guitar are really exclusive, impossible to find nowadays. The sound top is made of German spruce, with an even and straight grain on the entire surface. The back and sides are made of beautiful cypress tree, with a straight and simple veining.
The sound of this flamenco guitar is really incredible, even for a “second class” guitar, it gives off a quality of sound and a volume superior to many of other first class guitars that we have tried over these years. The basses are powerful, with extraordinary depth, the trebles are crystal clear and bright, and showing a perfect balance between both of them. The “rasgueos” whit this guitar are crystal-clear, broken and bright, with that particular “dry” and “hollow” sound, typical in the best flamenco guitars.
This flamenco guitar has got middle tension, and a perfect height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard, providing the guitarist with a high degree of comfort for both hands, as well as an easy performance.
The conservation condition of this guitar is really good. It has three fissures in the sound top, two of them repaired with a graft. All the fissures are perfectly repaired and documented in the attached images.
