24 Jan VICENTE AMIGO’S guitar: MANUEL REYES 2002
It is a guitar made by MANUEL REYES, 2003, one of the best guitar builders of all time, that maestro Vicente Amigo kept for several years, making use of it during this period. Around 8 years ago, he visited his friend, the guitarist José Luis Postigo, the owner of one of the best guitars in our country. After trying several guitars of his collection, Vicente became interested in one of them, so he offered to exchange it for a guitar made by Manuel Reyes. José Luis accepted the trade, and he also asked for him to sign the top of the guitar, so as to be able to prove its origin. In the images attached, you can see some photos of the day where these events took place. SEE THE GUITAR
This guitar made by Manuel Reyes is possibly one of the most comfortable ones we have ever had in our hands. Besides, its sound is simply perfect: great volume, power, scope, clarity… everything one could ask for! Its beautiful timbre is definitely worth mentioning. A timbre which has become a universal hallmark which easily distinguish his instruments from the ones made by the rest of craftsmen.
Talking about Vicente Amigo means talking about one of the greatest geniuses nowadays. Flamenco art would not be the same without him, just like Tomatito or Paco de Lucía. His contribution to the guitar in particular and to music in general is amazing: his own style, unprecedented character, all of which allows the audience to identify his sound after a couple of notes.
