This flamenco guitar has been made by master luthier Pedro Muriel in 2018. This guitar maker, who lives in Herrera (Sevilla), started in this world due to his great passion for flamenco guitars. It is remarkable to mention that he was Francisco Sanchez de Estepa´s disciple as he learnt this fine art. The best guitar makers´ instruments ever have passed through his hands: Gerundino Fernández, Manuel Reyes, Francisco Barba, Santos Hernández, Marcelo Barbero… among other ones. This experience has provided him with the chance to carefully study the different structures, thus acquiring an extense knowledge in the guitar making art. As a result, he has become established as one of the novice craftsmen with greatest impact. His guitars provide the player with an extraordinarily high quality and unique as well as surprising acoustics.
The different woods in this flamenco guitar are of the top existing quality. The top is made of german spruce, with an outlined grain, straight and smooth, that endorse its exceptional quality. The back and sides are made of Indian rosewood, with a straight grain and beautiful tones. The finishing is elegant and sober.
The sound emerging from this guitar possesses some special features and nuances, where the flamenco touch from this luthier can be definitely found, with deep and bright basses, extraordinarily powerful. The trebles are vivid and crystal clear, attaining a very long sustain. All those features make a piece of work with unique sound quality, keeping an identical tone and volume for every single note all along the fingerboard.
The tension is medium, with a very balanced height between strings in the saddle and fingerboard, providing us with a high degree of comfort for both hands.
