A spectacular guitar … Juan Montero Aguilera 1966 – nearly the same guitar has been played by the young Paco de Lucia back then in the 60’s!
Juan Montero Aguilera is one of the few famous Spanish guitar builders, whos guitars are played by many professional guitarists:
Among the many professional guitarists and artists who appear in his registry of customers are Juan Serrano (who has used his guitars on virtually all his recordings since 1990), Paco de Lucia, Paco Cepero, Vicente Amigo, Paco de Gastor, Eloy de Diego, José Luis Postigo, Manolo Dominguez, Pepe Morales, Juan Muñez El Tomate, Rafael Riqueni, Antonio de Patrocinio, Antonio Romero Pantoja, Hermanos Flores, Carlos Piñana de Cartagena, Adolfo Rábanos de Logroño, Alberto Lucena de Cordoba, Paco del Gastor de Morón, José Antonio Rodríguez, Luis Calderito, Manuel Silveria, Pepe Corraliza, and Enrique de Melchor.
His flamenco and classical guitars not only have the workmanship and beauty one expects in a quality handmade instrument, but they also have a richness, depth, and balance of sound.
This fine guitar has a lyrical, singing quality to it yet at the same time can bite if pushed. It is very light in weight and has piercing volume.
A nice “woody” tone with a great old world vintage touch, capable of retaining clarity and punch even when driven to the extreme limits of speed – whether in picado, tremolo or rasguedo techniques – this guitars can hold up and deliver a reliable and consistent quality of tone.
It has a spruce top and rosewood back and sides. The scale length is 655 mm and the nut width 52 mm. It has been professionally restored and the frensh polish expertly refreshed.
A suitable guitar case is included.
