a spectacular guitar … Juan Montero Aguilera 1978 – nearly the same guitar has been played by the young Paco de Lucia back then!
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 guitar has a spruce top and rosewood back and sides. The scale length is 660 mm and the nut width 53 mm. It is in an amazing condition – almost no signs of play and use are visible!
