Here is a master guitar by the renowned Spanish guitar builder José Lopez Bellido from Granada, built in 1988
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 top is a particularly fine-grained spruce (alpine spruce), flawless and extremely thin, which gives a particularly good vibration to the guitar and a very fast response.
Back and sides are made of selected cypress wood. The saddle width is 52 mm and the scale 660 mm.
All in all, it is a beautiful, mature instrument with a typical Spanish sound character. The guitar has a great playability, the neck is straight, the neck profile is very flat, which makes it even easier to play.
