Ricardo Sanchis Carpio 1990 – finely built guitar with inspiring Spanish lightness of sound!
Ricardo Sanchis Carpio is still the head guitar maker of Hermanos Sanchis Lopez in Valencia, which was founded by his grandfather Ricardo Sanchis Nacher in 1915. After working for some time with guitar makers in Valencia, the founder moved to Madrid, where he became friends with Manuel Ramirez and Domingo Esteso. To perfect his craft, he stayed in Madrid and worked for Domingo Esteso on Sundays for three years. As a result, the Sanchis family has had close ties with Esteso and his heirs, the Hermanos Conde, ever since.
Ricardo Sanchis Nacher’s son, Ricardo Sanchis Badia, learned his craft in the family workshop in Valencia. Ricardo Sanchis Carpio took over the company from his father and built it into a business with an international reputation for the quality of its classical and flamenco guitars.

The sound is overwhelming. We are thrilled by the Spanish lightness that this guitar radiates.
It has powerful and deep basses and the harmonics it produces are truly magical. The trebles have a lyrical, singing quality.
The guitar can get very loud, with a piercing richness of sound, and yet it always maintains a charming tone.
It is a truly graceful instrument that delights and inspires.
The condition is very good considering the age. It has some signs of play and use but is free of cracks, breaks and repairs.
The guitar comes in its original case.
