David "Jose" Rubio is well known for his work with Julian Bream in the 1960s. This instrument was built during this very period while he was still in New York (Bream played on a Rubio made in 1965), before he returned to his native England. This Rubio has a very bold sound with excellent power. As is typical with most great Rubios it is very even and balanced in all registers. At the same time, it has the beauty and lyricism for which he is best known. Condition-wise, there are no known repairs or cracks, only normal playing wear. This instrument is both historic and very enjoyable to play.
