  • Body:

    Beautifully straight-grained Spanish cypress with attractive, broad, boxwood purfling to the sides.

    A lovely, silky quality, European spruce - with an attractive, typically Madrid-styled geometric rosette and rosewood bridge with tapered wings and decorative, bone-framed tie-block capping.

  • Tuners:

    Fustero lyre pattern with engraved brass side-plates and perloid buttons mounted on a rosewood-faced head.

    This guitar is in near new condition; with barely six or seven little marks over the whole instrument. Apart from surface scratching on the golpe plate, it really does look like new before close inspection.

  • Comments:

    Felix Manzanero was one of the well-known journeymen from the 1960's Ramirez workshop and who, like Manuel Contreras, Paulino Bernabe and others, later became quite famous in his own workshop business. He was particularly admired for his flamenco guitars.
    Whilst looking like new, it also feels like new and I suspect has hardly been played. I feel sure its already good sound will be further opened out with playing. It has a deep bass voice from air resonance down at F and a good overall balance. A fine Madrid flamenco in exceptional condition.
