This is a great Fleta from 1986. It has a combination of tremendous power, balance, warmth and clarity – all qualities associated with a great instrument from this period. Fleta is known for his unique approach to guitar making, bringing in his techniques and processes from his violin and cello training to the construction of his guitars. The resulting sound is very haunting, dark and mysterious, making it wonderfully suited to contemporary, Spanish or 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 some minor playing wear. Over the last half century, scores of the finest players in the world have played these instruments, including Andres Segovia, John Williams, Angel Romero, Turibio Santos, Alirio Diaz and Marcelo Kayath to name just a few. This is an extremely powerful and bold Fleta from a great period, very desirable to both the collector and performer alike.
