The most remarkable…

Complex and brilliant sound, with the genuine attack of the best flamenco guitars.

Traditional design

For the construction of this flamenco guitar I’ve followed both the design patterns from Antonio de Torres and Santos Hernández.

Video test

This video was recorded in Caravia (Asturias, Spain), on January 2, 2021.
No post-processing sound was done to the sound takes, recorded live, just with an Audio Technica AT 2020 microphone.

The process

Images of the building process

A plenty handmade work. My philosophy on building classical and flamenco guitars is based on the attention to each part, so it could be possible to obtain all the best from each wood piece.
