Jose Lopez Bellido 1980 flamenco guitar – extraordinary guitar with a huge and bold 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. Bellido’s name guarantees the finest finish. The scale length is 658 mm and the nut width 52 mm.
The sound is powerful and it has such 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 good condition, but has been played a lot by a professional flamenco player. Recently Bellido has revised the guitar – it has received 2 small repairs and the finish has been refreshed.
The guitar comes with the original case.
