Ignacio Fleta and his sons Gabriel and Francisco are indeed three of the most important luthiers of the 20th century. Players such as Andres Segovia, John Williams and Carlos Bonnell have made some very important recordings with Fleta guitars. This 1985 Fleta was played and owned by the great Brazilian guitarist, Marcelo Kayath, who used it on his fourth and final album "Guitar Favourites", *see the photo of the cover.

1985 Fleta Concert -  Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"This is one of handful of concert guitars that I have played that I will always remember. The voice grabs you and invites you to get lost in the music. It has superb power and clarity, but also a compelling warmth and beauty. It is the combination of all these characteristics that make it so musical and alive. If you've been searching for that very special guitar that shares your passion for music, this is it. " - Paul Heumiller
