Jose Lopez Bellido 1969 flamenco guitar – extraordinary guitar with a explosive and powerful sound!
Bellido is one of Granada’s most famous guitar builders. At the beginning of the 60s he learned the art of guitar making with Antonio Marin and his brother Manuel Bellido from Eduardo Ferrer. After his training, he quickly set up his own business and since then has been based in the famous Cuesta Gomerez in Granada with his workshop.
His guitars have seen the stages all over the world in the hands of great guitarists, both classical and flamenco.
The instrument was built from the finest woods. Back and sides of cypress and the top of cedar. The scale length is 662 mm and the nut width 52 mm.
The sound is powerful and it has a great dynamic with a fresh and crisp tone.
This is without doubt a fine concert level guitar with a very strong fundamental and very controlled overtones. It has a very natural, “woody” quality of sound, very stylish, refined and alluring. In the hands, it feels very expressive and responsive to the most subtle of changes in the players touch. The sound is absolutely magical from the bottom-end to the highest registers.
It is in repaired condition – many cracks have been repaired. The neck is straight and it plays very well.
The guitar comes with a gig bag.
