This flamenco guitar has been made by the guitar maker Alberto Hernández. He started his career as an apprentice in Francisco Esteve´s guitar workshop. Currently, he is the Chief craftsman, in charge of the production of Juan Hernández´s Guitar Workshop and Francisco Esteve´s Guitars, taking care of the details, quality and the good work done in these two workshops, being responsible for their 40 craftsmen.
This flamenco guitar has been made taking the “Tribute to Marcelo Barbero” model as a starting point. Some modifications and guidelines have been introduced, as well, under the supervision of Maestro Rycardo Moreno, one of the very best guitarist in the flamenco outlook at present. Rycardo Moreno has actively taken part in both the design process and the details and final adjustments of the guitar. These factors have been crucial for scheduling the formal launch date, making sure the product in question is of the highest quality as it can be. For its making, both mechanical and manual processes have been employed, in order to reduce the production time, and thus the final price of the instrument itself. (SEE NEW)
With this new flamenco guitar model, we intend to provide the market with a multipurpose instrument, with excellent quality as regards both materials and finishes, and with an amplification system capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding guitarist. In order to do so, Carlos Juan´s amplification system has been selected. This amplification sensor is the only one specifically designed for flamenco guitars in the whole world, as it was specifically made for Maestro Vicente Amigo.
The woods employed for the making of this guitar are exceptional. The top, made of German spruce, has a straight and even grain. The back and sides are made of Spanish Royal Cypress, of superb beauty and quality.
The sound of the flamenco guitar is extraordinary, the basses are bright but depth and open, crisp and crystal clear trebles, a perfectly balanced set, with great volume and projection.
The tension of this guitar is medium, and the height of strings on saddle and fingerboard is medium balanced, which makes it highly comfortable for the guitarist for both hands. In addition, one will easily notice how easy it is to access the last frets the guitar design offers us.
