Juan Estruch is one of the venerable luthiers in Spain. Well known among the musicians are the guitars like this one from the “yellow label” period. They have a deep and rich sound and are appreciated by musicians and collectors alike.
They are also known through Chet Atkins. When asked shortly before his death which of his hundreds of guitars he most preferred, he unhesitatingly chose his 1964 Juan Estruch. In fact, this was the guitar that Atkins played daily and on which he made many of his “basement recordings” that were found after his death.
Like the Atkins guitar, this guitar is from the 60’s (1967). Simple, but beautiful rosette inlays. Rosewood back and sides and a spruce top, 650 mm scale length and 52 mm nut width – that are the characteristics of the guitar.
The sound stands out clearly from the “usual”. Here you get a real master instrument with a powerful room-filling sound. The guitar is very detailed and balanced. Through and through a sound to fall in love.
In addition, the guitar is in a very good condition and perfectly adjusted. It comes with the original guitar case.
