This flamenco guitar was made in 2012 by the master luthier Ricardo Sanchis Carpio, from Valencia. His guitars are often praised and played in the flamenco world, in which these guitars could be seen on stage all over the world, with guitar performers such as Pedro Sierra, Tomatito, José Andres Cortés, and many others. This model of flamenco guitar, R.S.C., is the only one being made by Ricardo Sanchis Carpio at present.
Amazing woods can be found in this piece of work: German spruce for the top, with a very straight and even grain all along its surface. The back and sides are made of Madagascar rosewood, an aesthetically marvelous wood due to its tones and grain shapes, providing the guitar with great beauty and elegance.
Its sound is perfect, combining volume and quality brilliantly. The basses are powerful and deep, the trebles are very clear and brilliant, having a perfect balance between basses and trebles, and a very accentuated flamenco sound.
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. Due to a break which was caused by a hit, the back of this guitar was replaced by a new one in Ricardo Sanchis Carpio´s workshop, resulting in a completely new guitar.
