Here’s Flynn Hase Spence playing Agustín Barrios’ Vals Opus 8, No. 4 on a stunning 1900’s Manuel Ramirez (exact date not known). This guitar is just an amazing example of early 20th Century Spanish luthiery.

    super playing. I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with that guitar. The only thing I can come up with, it’s not mine.

    I would love to hear Mr. Spence play another piece on that guitar.

  7. Wow, the bass on that guitar is absolutely stunning. Beautiful playing, too!

    Ive been playing that piece very badly for years. You’ve just inspired me to go and relearn it. Thankyou and well played!

    Great musicality, tone, and performance…all top drawer! I don’t know how anyone would could want more from a guitar…

    Mr. Spence’s elegant, precise, and crystal clear playing showcases a guitar with a rare balance of tone over its entire range. The intonation seems far better than what one usually hears in guitars of that vintage, even very good ones. In short, a pleasure on a treasure–many thanks!

    Very nice playing. I have a Manuel Ramirez with the same label. No date.

    c’est la bonne guitare pour jouer ce morceau . les guitares en palissandre sonnent moins bien . là on revient aux origines et in comprend mieux pourquoi ils composaient des morceaux comme ça aussi .

    Lovely playing, does justice to a marvelous instrument. Listen to that bass growl. Just great.
