Made by the son of the great guitarist of the same name. This flamenco blanca 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 with a slightly more compact box 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 gives it a very lyrical quality as well - quite a versatile instrument for other styles of music other than just flamenco. It is fitted with "machined" Planetary Pegs for that old-school look and feel but with ease of tuning. Pepe's guitars are played by a score of professionals including members of his family but it is especially worth mentioning that Paco de Lucia used a 2012 Pepe Romero guitar for part of his final album "CanciĆ³n andaluza", recorded just prior to his untimely passing in 2014. Upon receiving his, Paco said that he felt enchanted by the guitar. He loved the round sound, thought that it felt great in his hands and tuned great. 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.
