This guitar is a collaboration with the "Hijos de Ricardo Sanchis" workshop and the great contemporary flamenco player Antonio Rey* who provided the design specifications to satisfy the needs of a concert artist seeking maximal comfort in the delicate matter of determining tensions and measurements for optimal playability. And at that same time that will also yield a sweet, warm, aggressive flamenco sound. This guitar is a 1a concert-level flamenco negra model with well selected woods and clean craftsmanship. It has plenty of volume for any concert setting, with colorful tonal palette and excellent balance. Overall, a beautiful instrument that is easy to play from a well-respected workshop dating back to over 100 years ago.
