Made by the son of the great guitarist of the same name - this is one of the "0" guitars (#220) that until now has been a part of the Romero family collection - indeed the label bears a dedication to Pepe Sr. 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. Although a slightly larger size, the instrument is very lightly built, reminiscent of the legendary guitars that were built in the Miguel Rodriguez workshop. Indeed Pepe Jr. admits that elements of both Rodriguez and Santos Hernandez are strongly present in his work, fused with his own particular style and concept of sound. This instrument was used by his father for many concerts including an all-Bach concert (video below for details) in New York where Pepe Sr. gives a brief mention of the guitar from 2014. Playability is very easy with a smooth neck and large, rounded frets. The sound is thick and warm, yet very pure and separated, with great punch and immediate attack. Built in 2013, it is in excellent condition with only minor signs of use.
