Description

Guitar making has been a constant tradition in the small Spanish town of Casasimarro, in the province of Cuenca, since the 18th century. One of the earliest shops, dating from 1755, was run by none other than Alfonso Anselmo Alarcon, the great-grandfather of Vicente Carrillo Casas (b. 1963). The family art was subsequently handed down son to son, starting with Blas Carrillo Alarcon, (a.k.a. "Abuelo Moreno" - the "dark-haired grandfather") in 1836, then on to Vicente Carrillo Lopez, to Vicente Carrillo Cantos (and wife, Gabriela Casas Fornier). Their son, Vicente Carrillo Casas has been running the shop since 1980, maintaining a family tradition now in its 5th generation. For many years now, the Carrillo workshop has earned the small town of Casasimarro the loving name "El Pueblo de las Guitarras" (the Town of the Guitars).

This is the top model from the Vicente Carrillo workshop. It features his best materials, including stunning CSA rosewood. Although this guitar has the clarity and separation of spruce, the sound is also warm and full - qualities much more typical of a great cedar. It has an elegantly shaped neck for optimal playability and is a great value for the serious concert performer. This guitar is in excellent condition - no cracks or repairs, only some superficial surface wear on the finish.
