Stephen Hill - La Herradura, Spain

  • Year:

    2006 - no. 128. Based on Juan Martin's 1972 David Rubio flamenco guitar.

  • Body:

    Rio rosewood of some quality - mainly quarter-sawn with strong, close grainlines and beautiful colouring.

  • Front:

    European spruce - a superb quality top with stacks of medullary rays showing it to be well-quarter-sawn. With Stephen's regular rosette, a dark and elegant rosewood bridge with mother-of-pearl framing to the tie-block.

  • Tuners:

    Ebony pegs on a David Rubio shaped head.

  • Scale:


  • Neck Width:

    53 mm at the nut

  • Weight:

    1514 grams

  • Condition:

    All shellac french-polished.
    In hardly-played condition - you have to look hard to find a few tiny marks on the front; some very shallow, small nail marks on the back of the neck. The beautiful back and sides are as new.

  • Comments:

    Another from a collection of specially-commissioned Stephen Hill guitars, this flamenco negra is a good copy of a 1972 David Rubio owned by Juan Martin. It turns out to be a very fine and potent guitar - with an immediately impressive, open strong sound.
