This instrument was built in Mexico by Abel Garcia - one of Paracho's most respected contemporary luthiers. It was built for Angel Romero, it's only owner to date, who played many concerts on it. It has a rich cedar sound, very textured and velvety, with great volume and clarity. The action is set very comfortably, and helps make this an overall very enjoyable guitar for player and audience alike. It is in great shape – apart from some minor aesthetic wear in the finish, it has one hairline crack in the top, recently repaired by GV Rubio (and completely invisible from the outside). Otherwise, the condition is great with only some very minor wear from previous use. Includes a letter from Angel Romero verifying the provenance.
