2005 Francisco Barba CD/CY
|Back & Sides:
Of the same generation as Manuel Reyes and Gerundino, Francisco Barba is considered one of the top constructors of flamenco guitars in Spain. He is also the best-known builder in Seville where his guitars have been played by many of the city's top guitarists including Riqueni, Manolo Franco, Nino de Pura and many others. This cedar-topped blanca is visually stunning and features many unique and lovely details including a striking alternation of a red/green motif in the rosette and purfling. Tone is fat and balanced with a lot of punch, volume and flamenco edge. A very powerful and lively Andalusian flamenco guitar in like-new condition.
