Juan Fernandez Utrera 2023 – Rene Lacote romantic guitar from 1834 – a nice reproduction!
In 2019 on a trip to Spain we happened to discover the shop and the guitars of Juan Fernandez Utrera.
We were immediately thrilled, because such magnificent sounding guitars are hard to come across.
That’s why we decided to include Utrera guitars in our program. We are happy to present this Lacote reproduction which he did especially for us.
Juan Fernandez Utrera is still a relatively young guitar builder from Granada. We like his guitars exceptionally well.
This guitar is very light and has a spruce top and beautiful maple back and sides.
The scale length is 612 mm and the nut width 50 mm. It plays extremly well all the way down the neck.
Tonally, this guitar impresses with a very sweet, but also very powerful tone of unusual substance. It is a very charming instrument and its sound is perfect for getting closer to the authentic sound of the music of composers such as Sor, Giuliani, Aguado, Legnani, Diabelli, Carulli, Coste and Mertz, to name but a few!
A dream guitar that brings out the most beautiful timbres. It also has the volume and power you would expect from such a guitar.
