Description

In typical Fleta fashion for this period, this example from 1960 features a spruce soundboard with Indian rosewood for the back and sides. As expected, the sound is incredible - deep and complex with incredible dynamic range and balance. It also has a firmness in the fundamental which provides great projection in larger venues. Many players find the slender neck shapes on Fleta from this period to be his easiest to play - and this guitar is no exception - playability is easy on the hands, and can be played comfortably over many hours in a single sitting. The guitar does have 3 cracks (on the top only) that have been expertly repaired and re-finished in lacquer, but it is in otherwise great shape for an instrument with over 60 years of playing on it. This is also from Fleta's golden 'spruce' era - players like Segovia and Williams were concertizing and recording on Fleta instruments from this very period, making this sound one of the most beloved and cherished to modern admirers and aficionados of the classical guitar.
