  • Condition:

    The condition is very good, with no repairs or repolishing and only minor playing marks. There is a small flaw right at the edge of the top by the side of the fingerboard - done by the maker during construction. For its nearly 30 years of age, this is a performance-quality Gerundino in well-cared-for condition.

  • Comments:

    An excellent example from a player who bought it directly from the maker and used it for years regularly in professional dance accompaniment before stopping that due to life's other pressures. From the mid-70's and early 80's, a period that so many people consider to be when many of the finest Gerundino's were produced, it has a rasping, penetrating, very flamenco sound character and very low, easy action.
