Made by the son of the great guitarist of the same name. It has huge volume and extremely quick response, much in the style of the Andalucian flamencos particularly reminiscent of Miguel Rodriguez of Cordoba. The instrument is very lightly built as was common with most mid-century flamencos. Playability is very easy with a smooth neck and large, rounded frets. The sound is thick and warm, yet very pure and separated, which is exceptional for a cedar top blanca like this. Pepe’s private waiting list for new instruments is several years so we are delighted to have a guitar of his which is available now.
