  • Comments:

    This guitar is another originally brought into England by Pepe Martinez. These flamenco guitars of Manuel Reyes are legendary of course. Many knowledgeable players have their preferences for Reyes guitars of different periods and those of the 70's are favourite with many people.
    This is without doubt an excellent-sounding Reyes blanca. It has a very crisp, sparkling treble with a really punchy quality; wonderful with rasgueado. The bass and middle are also well focussed.
    This is a fine and handsome Manuel Reyes flamenco, in truly original condition, suitable for professional players and aficionados alike.
