Here’s another video of guitarist Manuel Espinás – this time playing a lovely interpretation of Barrios’ ‘Julia Florida’ on a Federico Sheppard ‘1934 Esteso’. The Esteso was reportedly Barrios’ favorite guitar, and there’s a story about it being used to prop up a machine gun during the El Salvadorean civil war (apparently the reason the original is beyond repair). Check out the guitar, and some great photos, here.
