Description

This is a very rare early Flamenco model guitar from Francisco Barba. Barba's guitars are known for their beautiful bass, dry treble tones, and fast playability and this instrument is no exception. The Spanish Cypress body and Spruce top provide the most authentic flamenco sound imaginable. This guitar also features a wonderfully ornate engraved headstock.

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.
