  • Condition:

    Being a very recently-made guitar, the condition is 99.99% new. Looking really, very hard I can fine three or four tiny marks or mini scratches as you would commonly find when people try a guitar, even carefully, in a shop or workshop.
    It looks really handsome, clean and shiny.

  • Comments:

    Barba guitars from Sevilla are the choice of many a flamenco professional. Their sound is very strong, penetrating, aggressive when need yet can have a plaintive, melancholic quality too, very much depending on the player style and technique. For those looking for the bark and bite of a true flamenco, Barba guitars can be just what you need - a bit of an animal.
    A highly impressive performance instrument, effectively as new, but not at the full price.
