Made by the son of the great guitarist of the same name. It has huge volume and extremely quick response - although the tone is "classical", the response and playability is much like a southern Spanish flamenco guitar. The instrument is very lightly built, reminiscent of the legendary guitars that were built in the Miguel Rodriguez workshop in Cordoba, Spain. Playability is very easy with a smooth neck and large, rounded frets. This model features a very interesting combination of materials - cedar for the top, giving it a warm, big-bodied and powerful Spanish glow, and maple for the back and sides which give it a sweeter, mellower quality, reducing some of the edginess of rosewood; Pepe Sr. refers to this model as the "gentle giant". Pepe Romero Jr.'s waiting list for new instruments is several years so we are delighted to have a guitar of his which is available now. It is from 2004, and in excellent condition with only some cosmetic wear in the finish.
