Ricardo Sanchis Carpio 2016 F-RSC Cipres – High end flameco guitar handbuilt by Ricardo Sanchis Carpio!
The Spanish guitar maker Ricardo Sanchis Carpio is the head luthier of the Hermanos Sanchis Lopez firm in Valencia that was founded by his grandfather, Ricardo Sanchis Nacher in 1915.
The founder having worked for guitar makers in Valencia for sometime, went to Madrid where he was befriended by Manuel Ramirez and Domingo Esteso. To perfect his craft, he remained in Madrid working for Domingo Esteso on Sundays for three years. As a result, the Sanchis family has had close relationships with Esteso, and with his heirs, the Hermanos Conde, ever since.
Ricardo Sanchis Carpio learned from his grandfather and continued to develop, so that his guitars finally became world famous.

The guitar plays like a dream. The action is low and the neck is straight. It is fitted with a high end Carlos pickup, which sounds amazing.
The guitar has a wonderful sound. We are thrilled by the Spanish lightness that this guitar radiates.
It has powerful and deep basses and the harmonics it produces are truly magical. The trebles have a lyrical, singing quality.
The guitar can get very loud, with a piercing richness of sound and yet it always maintains a charming tone.
It is a truly graceful instrument that delights and inspires.
It is in good condition, with some amount of wear from play and use and one tiny finish crack (has been checked by our luthier).
It comes with the original case.
