Description

Manuel Velazquez is one of the great masters of Classical guitar building, his guitars have reached great levels of respect of players and builders alike. We have here a classical from 1968 built in German Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood that was restored by Manuel himself in 2010. The famous Velazquez tone is fully present here, it rings like a bell from trebles to the bass. The bass strings are truly amazing on this guitar, pluck the low E and it will fill a room with warm rumbling tones. This guitar is in incredible shape for its age, it plays like brand new. Don't miss out on the chance to own a guitar from one of the masters of our time.

This is certainly a dream guitar! One of the Masters of our time, Velazquez guitars are rare and sought after by concert performers.
