Description

For this guitar, Mijail used 12 year old German spruce for the soundboard and cypress sourced from Seville, cut in 1986. Internally it has a five fan brace system, is lightly built in the great traditional flamenco tradition, yielding an instrument with ultra quick response, a warm woody and dry tone, yet with singing trebles. The lightweight build, low action and easy playability make this a very capable player's guitar and a fantastic value at this price. It is nearly identical to the winning guitar he built for the 2009 Antonio Marin Montero Guitar Making Competition - with only a slight change to the rosette design and not using a maple reinforcement in the neck, which helps give the guitar a looser, flamenco feel. The inlay work is beautiful, and of note it has two maple strips in the head to frame the (mechanical) pegs, giving the guitar a very bold look, which nicely compliments the bold sound of this excellent flamenco blanca. To hear the award-winning guitar, see the video below of Luis Mariano in a performance in Granada.
