We were very happy to catch French guitar superstar Judicaël Perroy in between tour dates for just long enough to record a video for us! As it happened, Amalia Ramirez was in town that day and had just brought us one of the new Antigua model guitars for us to check out. We don’t have the guitar in stock yet – she took it back to Madrid with her – but we do have some photos and of course this amazing video of Judicael playing Barrios’ Choro de Saudade.
Amalia tells us that the Antigua – or Antique – is the result of requests to create a guitar more like the Ramirez guitars of the early 20th Century, and features a spruce top unless special-ordered with cedar, and Indian rosewood back and sides unless special-ordered with Madagascar rosewood. GSI will be carrying the Antigua model soon.
Judicael is currently touring the US, Canada and Europe, so be sure to check out his website for tour dates!
