This flamenco is as vibrant as it looks. Built in the Granada style, it's of a slightly more compact body design, making it very lightweight and therefore very fast responding and explosive even in the hands of a player with a lighter touch. Its playability and responsiveness are incredibly "flamenco" in feel, but it does have a great lyrical quality despite its snappy personality. The fit and finish of the guitar are extremely clean, and it features some very handsome materials including some exquisite CSA rosewood - not just used for the central wedge on the back but also for the head veneer (both front and back of headstock) and bridge. We are delighted to be representing this veteran Granada maker in the US.

Photos of this guitar taken upon completion.
This guitar was made by Granada luthier Juan Miguel Carmona, who is part of the Carmona family of professional flamenco players that includes Pepe Habichuela, Juan Habichuela, Josemi Carmona and the pop flamenco group "Ketama". Additionally, his father, Agustin Carmona is famously known as the best guitar varnisher in Granada during the entire second half of the twentieth century. Juan Miguel has been making both classical and flamenco guitars in Granada for nearly 40 years and is the protege of the great builder Rafael Moreno Rodriguez, who has been his primary mentor and friend since the mid-1970's when he built his first guitar under Moreno's supervision. He has in recent years become influenced by Miguel Rodriguez of Cordoba and in partilular the system used by Pepe Romero Jr. in his construction.
