Beautiful and like new guitar from Gerundino Fernandez Hijo – Check the details about this great guitar from this famous builder!
Gerundino Fernandez Hijo is the son of the legendary Almeria builder of the same name.
When you play his instruments you are immediately convinced that he possesses the same subtle touch as his late father. This should come as no surprise, as he grew up constantly in the workshop, assisting his father over many years with such tasks as sanding wood, inlaying kerfings, gluing backs and tops, etc. He also regularly accompanied and assisted his uncle Eladio in locating, cutting and selecting the best woods that would eventually become the material for his fathers guitars, and now, his own.
This is our first instrument from Gerundino Fernandez Hijo, and of course we had to have the classic “cedar blanca”, the same formula immortalized by the 1974 Gerundino (Sr.) played in countless recordings and concerts by Paco Pena.
The original design has been maintained (including the famous carved head), as well as the sound – the trademark woody, traditional flamenco sound of Gerundino is all here.
The guitar has huge volume, easy playability and excellent craftsmanship. Overall a fantastic and iconic instrument in every way.
The scale length is 660 mm and the nut width is 52 mm. It has a cedar top and cypress back and sides.
We are very pleased to present this Gerundino Fernandez Hijo and can highly recommend this guitar to the most discriminating flamenco players.
It is in an almost new condition with only very light signs of play and use. It comes with its original hard case.
