Description

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. It's in great condition for its age - no cracks anywhere, the condition is completely original (with the exception of replaced tap plates). Although a longer scale instrument, playability is a breeze, as is the norm for this maker. This is an exceptional instrument in every regard from this great builder.
