This is a terrific sounding guitar - one of the guitars that I perform with. It was constructed in the workshop of famed Madrid luthier Felix Manzanero, but not by Felix Manzanero, rather by a highly trained luthier in the shop, and made of the finest materials. Solid cedar top - Solid Indian Rosewood back and sides - Ebony fingerboard - Bone nut and saddle. High quality gold tuners - Rosewood bridge and headstock facing - 650/52.
This guitar is extremely clean playing - it has great articulation, crystal clear separation of notes. This is found more often on spruce than cedar. So I feel it is the best of both worlds - the warmth of cedar and the clarity of spruce. It also has great sustain.
There are a few small dings on the top that are very unobtrusive, and one tiny milky spot on the back. The photo of the back was taken by a friend, and his reflection in the photo mars what is really a beautiful book matched solid Indian Rosewood back. Part of the rosette is darkened and slightly raised. Obviously none of this affects the sound, which is rich and Spanish.
Local pickup available - New York area. Will meet to deliver the guitar in Manhattan, Westchester, Connecticut, or Riverdale. For a local pickup I will pass the shipping savings to the buyer, and reduce the price to $750.
$795, plus $50 shipping. Including a used hard shell case in very good condition.
