Description

Like Santos and Barbero, Manuel de la Chica was at home building both classical and flamenco guitars, indeed his finer instruments have the flexibility of being played by either style. This is such an instrument, and it has a lyrical, singing quality to it yet at the same time can bite if pushed. It is very light in weight, and has piercing volume. It's in extraordinary condition for its age - no cracks anywhere, the condition is completely original. Although a longer scale instrument, playability is a breeze, as is the norm for this maker, and also thanks to a recent re-fret and fresh setup by Yuris Zeltins. This is an exceptional instrument in every regard from this great builder.
