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 - indeed this guitar has cedar fans under the spruce top. 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 as well as a slightly shorter scale at 640mm. This guitar also features a beautiful 4 piece back with elegantly figured African rosewood. Pepe's private waiting list for new instruments is several years so as his exclusive US dealer, we are pleased to acquire and offer a guitar or two of his per year.Orfeo Magazine No. 10 - West Coast Luthiers
