Made with cedar for the soundboard, and a beautiful exotic set of African rosewood for the back and sides, this is a beautifully designed and built guitar by Oscar Munoz. For this instrument he also added a central tapering strip in the back of ebony, matched with ebony for the head veneer and foot where the sides come together at the bottom. This all complements the striking brown & yellow star-shape design in the rosette, which is inspired by visual motifs seen throughout the city of Granada in the myriad of designs that grace the architecture in a vast array of tile work and flooring. According to Oscar, it follows a medieval technique, native to the city of Granada called "taracea". The dark, chocolatey look of the guitar is matched by its sound which has a deep, rich quality with great warmth across the entire register. Plenty of volume as well - this guitar could easily fill any sized concert hall.Photos of this guitar taken just after completion.
