  • Comments:

    The flamenco guitars of Francisco Barba have been the choice of many top level players at least since the 1970's and those of more recent times are still highly-praised.
    This one has a loud, quick and aggressive character with a strong first string and capable of a lyrical, melancholia quality in the treble.
    There is no doubt that this is a highest level, professional's instrument that displays high level of craftsmanship, is beautifully finished and has the sound and response demanded by the professional player. A truly outstanding flamenco guitar.
