We’ve just received our first flamenco guitar from Seattle luthier Ethan Deutsch, and it’s a killer guitar. Even before we got our first one I had noticed on facebook that Jason McGuire was freaking out about how good they are, and he even made a few videos of the guitar. The guitar will go up on the site next week, but in the meantime check out Jason’s fantastic playing and just how good this guitar sounds.

    I trust Jason´s impressions about it, but unfortunately you cannot know how good a guitar is until it is between your fingers.

    Still, I definetely trust his judgement 🙂

    Jason can make plywood sound great.

  3. the color seems to be a little too yellow for my taste but then I’ve also seen some Reyes guitars that were a little too yellow.

    Finish houses in Spain don’t make the old gomo laca colors like they use to, we have to hand-blend all shellac now to get the tan patina that most older guitars have.

    Eugene Clark in Tacoma builds a guitar with the perfect tan color, IMHO.

    Anyway, if Jason says the guitar is good, then I would certainly take a good look at it, to evaluate it for myself.

    It is excellent for first guitar. I think it need lower action on bridge to have more attack, or top needs to be aged.;)

  5. Thanks for your interest. Please beware that photographs and computer monitors do not always convey colors accurately. I French polish my guitars with a caramel-colored shellac–they are not yellow.
