Description

The tone of this particular instrument is sweet, beautiful and lyrical while retaining the bite and energy of flamenco: when playing melodically, it sings like a human voice, but also awakens with a tremendous bite when pushed hard. The strong, voice-like trebles are balanced by it’s big low-end that is full but not boomy. As sweet as the tone is, it still has the aggressive response when pushed in the right direction - rasguedos in particular are quite explosive and powerful. Cedar topped Reyes are rarely seen and this is a super one from 1986, perhaps the most popular "period" of his output. Condition is excellent - there is one hairline crack (repaired) on one of the sides, and the guitar was lightly re-finished (no removal of wood) many years ago - since then it has been very well taken care of and as a result has picked up very little wear. This guitar is a true masterpiece, and could easily please the most discriminating player or collector.
