This wonderful Guitar was built by Juan Miguel Gonzalez who is widely recognized as one of the greatest 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 Indian rosewood.
This guitars 650mm scale and 52mm nut is characteristic. The set up is great: low, fast, without buzz.
The sound of this gorgeous guitar is wonderfully versatile, with a complex tone and a tremendous range of the most beautiful timbres. The sound is powerful and majestic on the one hand, but the guitar also impresses with clear, sparkling highs that give a sense of great projection. It is a very balanced guitar, with a robust, creamy quality to the sound. It also has this nice quick, bouncy responsiveness, a characteristic found in the best of the southern Spanish instruments.
The guitar is in a very good condition with a small amount of wear from play and use.
It comes with the original guitar case.
