  • Condition:

    This guitar was one of several Reyes's owned by a full-time flamenco teacher. It had a lot of playing marks, handling marks and the golpeador was coming away so it has been completely re-polished and looks beautiful. The front of head, back of head, back of the neck and back all look super. The lower part of the sides has remnants of dinks and donks under the new polish and there are a few small under-polish marks on the front.

  • 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 another fine Manuel Reyes flamenco, suitable for professional players and aficionados alike.
