Description

Like Santos and Barbero, Manuel de la Chica was at home building both classical and flamenco instruments and built spectacular instruments in both styles. This is a monster of a mid-century style flamenco blanca and as good a representative of this style as any instrument by any other maker from the period. It is featherlight, has a huge, raspy sound and great flamenco bark with piercing volume. Yet if coaxed, it has a lyrical, singing quality to it yet at the same time. This is an extremely versatile instrument that has incredibly livliness and energy. Playability is a breeze, as is the norm for this maker. This guitar was used on the track "Inminente" on the album "Contra Tiempo" by Kai Narezo. This is an exceptional instrument in every regard.
