The label reads "Marcelo Barbero (Hijo) para casa de Arcangel Fernandez". In 1968, "Marcelo hijo" (son of the great Marcelo Barbero) was in his early 20s when he built this guitar in the workshop of his mentor Arcangel Fernandez, who had himself been a disciple of Marcelo Barbero Sr. This guitar has a wonderful, dark sound with bold basses and strong trebles. It sounds like an old spruce top Miguel Rodriguez (at considerably lower price) from the same era. It has the raspy, open vibrant sound of a great mid-century flamenco while retaining the warmth and lyrical beauty of a great classical. Condition is excellent with original finish throughout. This is a great example an instrument built in one of the most famous workshops in Spanish guitar making history.
