Flamenco guitar Víctor Quintanilla 3/2021

This flamenco guitar has been made by master luthier Víctor Quintanilla in 2021. Víctor Quintanilla is a luthier settled in Mijas, a beautiful and quaint small town in Malaga. Víctor Quintanilla studied carpentry in Escuela Franco (currently IES La Rosaleda, a high school), until his tutors put him in touch with the true maestro of the guitar making in Malaga, José Angel Chacón. Then, he would discover his true calling: the guitar. In 2019 he was awarded the First Prize of the Antonio Marín Montero III International Contest of Guitar Making, in Granada, organized by the European Guitar Foundation, in the discipline of flamenco guitar. When we see and listen to his guitars, their sound quality and power, the degree of perfection and refinement attained… all of it powerfully gets our attention, indeed. He is, no doubt, one of the best luthiers we hope to keep collaborating with, for a long time to come.

The wood used for the top is German spruce, and spanish Cypress for back and sides. The top has a very accentuated grain, completely straight and uniform. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, with an outstanding quality and beauty.

The sound of this guitar is really surprising. It has exceptional scope, which one does not easily find in a standard cypress guitar. It is much more common in rosewood guitars. In this guitar, Victor has introduced some slight modifications upon our request, with which he managed to improve, even more, the beating with both hands. This aspect directly results in a better quality and clarity of the sound. Its special character coming out of the strumming is worth mentioning, to say the least. A perfect balance between bright and body, thus producing an unmistakeable feeling of being before the purest flamenco guitar.

This guitar has the highly-valued “rebound beating” on the right hand, combined with fantastic softness on the left one, thus accomplishing the “perfect instrument”, should we want to spend hours and hours playing non-stop with a nice feeling of ease.

The condition of this flamenco guitar is new.
