Jose Oribe began making guitars in 1962, who along with the late Manuel Velazquez, makes him one of North America's veteran builders of the past 50 years. This model, his 'Gran Flamenco' is a true concert flamenco guitar and despite Oribe's reputation for constructing bulky, heavier-built guitars, this instrument is lightweight and agile with ultra-responsive and very quick attack to each note. Sound is very flamenco - snappy and punchy with low setup giving it just the right amount of growl. The guitar is in great shape with just a bit of mild playing wear.
