This spruce blanca has a fast response and a big, woody, traditional flamenco sound. More precisely, the tone is clear and focused with a slightly dark texture - "Andalusian" in character – not surprising as Gerundino himself lived and built in the city of Almeria: birthplace and home of Antonio de Torres and the modern Spanish guitar. It plays great - the extremely lightweight build give it a very explosive attack, it has a big, raspy sound. Very similar to the famous sound of Paco Pena, who famously played Gerundino's from this era. It has 1 repaired (cleated internally) crack on the bass side of the soundboard, back and sides are crack-free. Overall, a wonderful concert guitar of a great vintage for the serious flamenco player and collector.
