  • Comments:

    These XXXth Anniversario models are Paco's most luxurious model. He reserves his finest woods and decorates the guitars with an ebony fillet on the guitar back and fits Rodgers tuners. Internally, they are very similar to the concert model, but there is some detail enhancement to the strutting below the bridge. As well as using the best of his fine materials, he also spends more time voicing the body components, checking and adjusting the completed body frequencies and tap-tones. They are probably the most refined guitars made in Granada and commonly possess impressive power and projection. They have a rounded sound even when new and a great quality of offering a wide range of dynamic response and tone colour variation. Altogether this makes them very musical instruments and immediately impressive concert guitars. This particular one is very immediate, loud, very even, well-balanced and a worthy performers concert guitar. We collect every new guitar from the maker and enjoy a strong relationship with him which all goes to ensuring the best possible quality.
