Julian Espinosa 1971- this classical guitar is a dream for vintage guitar lovers. It has the character of those guitars that you don’t want to put down because they just sound so good and have a lively and sparkling nature.
We can only recommend this guitar, it is an incredibly good instrument.
Julian Espinosa is a guitar maker from Zaragoza. He learned from none other than Ignacio Fleta. He worked for Fleta in Barcelona for several years before going freelance and opening his own studio in Zaragoza.
His guitars have been sold in conservatories all over Europe because they are of excellent quality and yet affordable in price.
Not much information can be found about Julian Espinosa, as he apparently died young and his guitars are very rare.
This wonderful guitar is finely handcrafted in 1971 by Espinosa in the style of an Ignacio Fleta guitar.
The body is made of beautiful rosewood and the top of fine spruce. The bracing is in the typical Fleta style with 9 fans. The scale length of 664 mm and the nut width of 54 mm as well as the somewhat stronger neck correspond exactly to the guitars of Fleta and the general idea of the time.
The sound of the guitar is an absolute pleasure … there are guitars like this with which you immediately feel an inner connection and which you quickly take to your heart. This is exactly the case with this guitar.
The sound is very touching and this guitar awakens deep emotions. The basses are round and precise, with a very special and enchanting quality. The singing and crystalline trebles offer a fantastic range of timbres.
From the exterior, you can tell that this guitar has been played and loved for countless hours over the years.
Some may be put off by the exterior condition – but experienced players know the quality hidden in such characterful guitars.
Apart from the countless traces of playing, the condition is very good … there is only one very stable and old crack repair. Otherwise, the guitar is top. Especially from the aspect of playability it impresses with a low action, a straight neck and very playable frets.
It comes with the original case.
