  • Comments:

    Pablo Requena is originally from Malaga and worked for a long time in Lewes; now many years in Plumpton Green. He is also very well-known for successful courses in guitar-making in Spain.
    This is a very traditional, beautifully-crafted fan-strutted instrument with a full, deep bass voice and clear singing treble. It has the warmth and full sound of cedar but also has a clarity and sparkle in the treble.
    This is an immediately impressive guitar to play, offering power, immediacy, richness of sound, lovely balance and comfort in playing .... what more can we ask!
