Description

The classical guitars of Manuel Reyes almost never appear on the market - so this is a very rare treat to have this magnificent instrument here in our showroom. It has a wonderful, dark sound with bold basses and strong trebles. Alternatively, with lowered action and tap plate added, this would make an exceptional flamenco negra. Along with an elite handful of other builders from this time (including Miguel Rodriguez and Arcangel Fernandez) these guitars are prime examples of the mid-century Spanish style at its apex. And this is a stellar example both for sound and condition. To date, this instrument has had only two prior owners, the first commissioned it along with a flamenco blanca, taking delivery of them both at the same in 1969. Like the blanca, this is in like-new, virtually untouched condition. Absolutely a miracle that an instrument of this vintage is in such incredible shape for its age, likely due to it's having had only two very caring owners to date. This is for the most discriminating player or collector seeking a great sounding Reyes in such amazing shape. This guitar is a true masterpiece, a truly remarkable and rare instrument.
