Description

Of the same generation as Manuel Reyes and Gerundino, Francisco Barba is considered one of the top constructors of flamenco guitars in Spain. He is also the best-known builder in Seville where his guitars have been played by many of the city's top guitarists including Riqueni, Manolo Franco, Nino de Pura and many others. This cedar-topped blanca is visually stunning and features many unique and lovely details including a striking alternation of a red/green motif in the rosette and purfling. Tone is fat and balanced with a lot of punch, volume and flamenco edge. In other words - a very powerful and lively Andalusian flamenco guitar by every measure. Playability is a breeze - it has an easy and sleek neck with low flamenco action and just the right amount of "sizzle" which adds to the authentic southern Spanish flamenco sound. There is one small, well-repaired crack in the top, but otherwise condition is excellent with very minor wear in the finish. This is a top concert instrument for any professional flamenco setting - whether on stage or in studio.
