New model “Marcelo Barbero”… now also in cedar!

We present you the new model Marcelo Barbero with a cedar top! As you know, on Solera Flamenca we are releasing to the market, with the collaboration of the guitarist Alberto Hernández, a new flamenco guitar model: «Homage to Marcelo Barbero», a guitar which made a difference in the world of the semi-handcrafted guitar. The idea of making this instrument came from the need for providing the market with a top-notch instrument for an affordable price.

This guitar model arose from the need in the market for a top-notch instrument for an affordable price. Taking Marcelo Barbero´s model of 1953 as a starting point, one can imagine the quality of the resulting work of art. Marcelo Barbero is one of the greatest guitar makers in history, and every single detail has been carefully respected and followed, thus maintaining the same dimensions, scale, size, and aesthetics as the very original instrument. For its making process, both traditional and mechanical processes have been employed, allowing the craftsmen to reduce the production time, and thus the final price of the instrument. Therefore, Alberto Hernández, along with Solera Flamenca, has accomplished the making of a top-level instrument for quite an affordable price, which we think will revolutionize the current market of flamenco semi-handicraft guitars.
