This guitar was built and signed by Ricardo Sanchis Carpio in 1985. His grandfather, Ricardo Sanchis Nacher was trained by Manuel Ramirez and Domingo Esteso (for whom he also worked) and founded the Sanchis workshop in 1915. This guitar is a 1a concert model with well selected woods and clean craftsmanship. It has plenty of volume for any concert setting, with colorful tonal palette and excellent balance. Apart from 2 well-repaired (and almost invisible) back cracks, condition is excellent with only some wear in the finish. Overall, a beautiful instrument that is easy to play from a well-respected workshop dating back to over 100 years ago.
