This is the guitar used by Antonio Rey on his 2017 album "Dos Partes de Mi" and with which he has performed countless concerts. Those familiar with the album will be familiar with its exquisite tone which is sweet, beautiful and lyrical while retaining the bite and energy of flamenco: when playing melodically, it sings like a human voice, but also awakens with a tremendous bite when pushed hard. The strong, voice-like trebles are balanced by it’s big low-end that is full but not boomy. As sweet as the tone is, it still has the aggressive response when pushed in the right direction - rasguedos in particular are quite explosive and powerful. Condition is excellent and original. This guitar is a true masterpiece, and could easily please the most discriminating player or collector. Built in 1982, it dates from one of the more popular periods of his output. Truly a remarkable and rare instrument in such fine condition with incredible provenance.
