1968 Barba, Francisco Flamenco - Classical Guitar Flamenco Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Francisco Barba is one of the finest names in Flamenco Lutherie. This guitar has the dry, punching tone players love. It plays very easy and seems to know what you are thinking. Loud, clear and beautiful voice." - Paul Heumiller
