This wonderful Guitar was built by Juan Miguel Gonzalez who is widely recognized as one of the great luthiers living today. Juan Miguel Gonzalez was born in Almeria in 1947 is was taught by his father Miguel Gonzalez Abad (1906-1989), who in turn had apprenticed with the Moya brothers (who were close friends with Antonio Torres and learned from him). This is why Juan Miguel Gonzalez is considered as the last legacy of Antonio de Torres.
Juan Miguel’s guitars have a special duende professional players seek and love. To name but a few of his clients: Tomatito, Norberto Torres, Monolo Franco, Carlos Piñana, and El Niño de la Manola. As is typical of the guitars made by Juan Miguel Gonzalez instruments, this instrument is made of master grade woods. Its top is made using the best tight-grained German spruce, the back and sides are made from impeccable old madagascan rosewood.
This guitars 660mm scale and 52mm nut is characteristic. The set up is great: low, fast, without buzz.
The guitar has a great sound: it is responsive in all registers. It explodes with power and has this huge and round sound.
The guitar is in a very good condition with a small amount of play wear. It has a little scratch under the bridge, which comes obviously from changing the strings.
I found this guitar for prices of $ 12000 in the net – so here you have the chance to get this beautiful instrument for a fraction of that price.
