We’ve got a new guitar coming in any day now from Granada maker Rafael Moreno Rodriguez and our friends Pepe Romero and Vicente Coves happened to be in the shop as he was binding the guitar and later when the guitar was ready to be french polished, so they took some photos for us.

I’ve been in touch quite a bit with Graciliano Perez, from Cordoba, who will be sending us some guitars soon. Graciliano was recently in Granada hanging out with our friend Vicente Coves and with Maestro Pepe Romero, and he brought along a new guitar he had just finished for Vicente Amigo – a rosewood and cedar flamenco – and Vicente Coves was kind enough to record himself playing it for us. Vicente Amigo picked up the guitar today and said he might record a video of himself playing it, too, at some point, so I’m really looking forward to hearing that. Vicente Coves is a classical player, so it’s kind of interesting to hear him play a flamenco, and it’ll be great to then hear it played by Vicente Amigo.

Normally we have guitars here that are on their way to GSI, but this time we have a guitar that has just arrived in Granada for our friend Vicente Coves in Granada. Vicente is a very accomplished guitarist, student of Pepe Romero’s and a huge fan of Pepe Jr.’s guitars even though he lives in the city that probably has more guitar makers per capita than any other.

This is Pepe’s 206th guitar and Vicente is going to record his first impressions and send us some audio of how the guitar sounds when he first gets it and once it’s been played a bit. Click on the photos to see them bigger and look for more photos in part 2.

This one’s for the Spanish speakers out there, sent to me by our friend Vicente Coves – Pepe Romero talking about being intimidated by the difficulty of the piece Rodrigo had written for him, ‘Concierto Para Una Fiesta’. He even thought Rodrigo had made a mistake on the tempo marking since it seemed too fast. But Rodrigo told him that the tempo was right – he had written it especially for Pepe – so Pepe had no choice but to learn it.
