Manuel Bellido classical guitar – extraordinary guitar with a huge and bold sound!
Bellido is one of Granada’s most famous guitar builders. At the beginning of the 60s he learned the art of guitar making with Antonio Marin Montero and his brother Jose Lopez Bellido from Eduardo Ferrer.
After his training, he quickly set up his own business and since then has been based in Granada with his workshop.
His guitars have seen the stages all over the world in the hands of great guitarists, both classical and flamenco.
Juan Carmona and Tomatito play his guitars. Bellido is also recognised for the classical guitars that he built with a very special attention to the sound quality.
His guitars are traditionally built and inspired by Antonio de Torres.
This classical Manuel Bellido guitar is truly unique. The old woods and varnish have melted together and emphasises the beauty of the fine spruce top and the perfectly cut rosewood.
It is a wonderfully versatile guitar with a complex sound. The sound is powerful and majestic. It particularly impressives with trebles that are clear, sparkling and gives a sense of real projection. It is a very balanced guitar and has an impressive open sound.
It has a built in Carlos pickup (carlosjuan.eu) which sounds incredible and which alone is very expensive.
This guitar is in wonderful and original condition and perfectly setup. There was a small repair on the back. The scale length is 660 mm and the nut width 52 mm. It comes with its hard case.
