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 negra is visually stunning and features many unique and lovely details including a striking alternation of a red/green motif in the rosette and purfling - the central mosaic being a sequence of red roses with green stems and leaves. Materials are also eye-popping with a well-aged dark cedar top and wild set of highly flamed mahogany for the back and sides, which in addition to being visually stunning, enhance the mid-range over a cypress guitar, without the heaviness that can sometimes come with rosewood. 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. The guitar is also light as a feather - absolutely in line with the best flamencos made by Barbero, Arcangel and even Santos. This is a top concert instrument for any professional flamenco setting - whether on stage or in studio. This is a rare opportunity to own a "like" brand-new instrument from this legendary maker.
