  • Comments:

    From the mid-70'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 (hear the sound sample) and very low, easy action. Simply a very fine example of this legendary flamenco maker's work with great sound and super condition.
