  • Comments:

    The 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 early 1990's are favoured by many.
    This is without doubt an excellent Reyes blanca. It has a crisp, sparkling treble with a really lyrical quality like many Barberos, but not too much sustain. The bass and middle are also well focussed; able to produce a fine rasgueado sound.
    This is a fine Manuel Reyes flamenco, suitable for professional players and aficionados alike.
