Nice guitar by Jeronimo Pena – it sounds as good as it looks and is an extraordinary guitar through and through –
A very nice old world flamenca!
This is one of the early Pena guitars and it is an absolutely stunning guitar. The woods on this guitar are extraordinary beautiful and the decoration works incredibly nice.
Jeronimo Pena Fernandez’s heavily decorated guitars are perhaps most immediately recognizable by their bold construction details and overall original style.
His excellent training in carpentry and furniture making was not lost on Pena’s guitars, just look at the elaborate woodwork on the bridge and headstock.
The sound of this guitar is powerful and dynamic – as elegant and majestic as its appearance. It impresses with a great volume and a very distinctive tone.
The condition is good and the guitar has been brought back to glory. It has been completely restored and the french polish nicely refreshed.
It plays easily with a low action. The scale length is 650 mm and the nut width 52 mm. The top is made of very fine spruce, back and sides of beautiful cypress wood.
Therefore this guitar is a great example of one of the most admirable luthiers of the twentieth century.
