  • Comments:

    The flamenco guitars of Manuel Reyes are legendary of course. Many knowledgeable players have their preferences for Reyes guitars from differing periods but those of the late 70's and 80's are usually in everybody's selection. This is without doubt a terrific guitar. It is so clear, sparkling and yet has a really lyrical quality like many Barberos. The sound it can produce with continuous rasgueado is quite magical. So - a really special quality Manuel Reyes in superb condition. The sale includes some original invoice papers from Manuel Reyes.
