This is a great Fleta from 1982. It has a combination of tremendous power, balance, warmth and clarity – all qualities associated with a great instrument from this period. The sound is very haunting, dark and mysterious, making it wonderfully suited to Spanish and South American repertoire. Another remarkable characteristic is its superb sustain in virtually every register. Playability is easy, with a very comfortable neck and response to the right hand. Condition is excellent with only two well-repaired hairline cracks at the extremity of the lower bout, repaired with glue only (no cleats) and nearly invisible to the eye. An extremely powerful and bold Fleta from a great period, this is very desirable to both the collector and performer.
