This flamenco guitar has been made by the great luthier Francisco Barba in 1992. He is regarded as one of the best guitar makers ever and his guitars have been (and are) praised and used by some of the best guitarists in the world: Niño de Pura, Manuel Molina, Rafael Riqueni, Pepe Habichuela… and so many others.

A guitar that was made to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Francisco Barba’ s guitars. Made with woods of very special quality, and beautiful edging work details. The woods chosen for this magnificent guitar are canadian cedar for the top, with an even and straight grain, and Brazilian rosewood for back and sides, with a chocolate tone and a beautiful fabric, specially ordered by Jose Luis Parreño, a very close friend of Francisco Barba.

The sound emerging from this guitar possesses some special features and nuances, where the flamenco touch from this luthier can be definitely found. The basses are deep and bright with an 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 that sublimely combines power volume and quality.

This guitar has got medium tension, and a reduced 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.
