Description
Made by the son of the great guitarist of the same name. It has huge volume and extremely quick response. Although the tone is "classical", the response and playability is much like a southern Spanish flamenco guitar - likely due to its lightweight build, for its size. For many years now, these have been compared in this regard to the great instrument of Miguel Rodriguez. Since his 170th instrument, Pepe has adopted a reverse fan system (fans radiating from the bridge area, rather than from the soundhole) for his standard model after studying an early 1970's Rodriguez with this very system. Pepe feels this opens the instrument up, and gives it a unique distinctive quality of sound that appeals greatly to his sense of style. Playability is very easy with a smooth neck and large, rounded frets. To top it all off, Pepe used some of his "churchdoor-esque" woods for the gorgeous 4-piece back and sides which are absolutely stunning both in appearance and sound. It was also just sent down to his workshop to have the polish touched up as well as to have two hairline cracks in the back glued, and it now looks like-new. Overall a sensational instrument to play and admire.Orfeo Magazine No. 10 - West Coast Luthiers
