Francisco Barba blanca 1973 flamenco guitar.
Francisco Barba Martinez is one of Sevilla's most recognized builder. His reputation is known throughout the world and his guitars are in huge demand now. Barba's guitars are played but such artists as Pedro Pena, Nino de Pura, Quique Paredes, Riqueni, Manolo Franco and others. Barba's guitars feature a great setup, necks are very comfortable. Typically, they are fast and very well balanced using very light Spanish cypress creating an incredible amount of volume…a great examples of what a true flamenco guitar should be.
It is hard to find a good Barba blanca, harder still to find a good one with a Cedar top in absolutely mint like new condition. Our artisanos José and Martin restored this Barba to its original condition, so she is in superb condition, especially now. The guitar has excellent volume, notes just want to jump out, strong and very Flamenco with a delightful 'texture' created by the interesting combination of Cedar and very old aged Cypress for the back and sides. In all, a chance to own a superb 70's Barba with a unique voice and loads of personality, in literally like new condition, a rare and wonderful find for the performer and collector alike.
