This guitar was built by Ricardo Sanchis Nacher (1881-1960) and is historically very interesting as it is similar to the last guitar Agustin Barrios bought from Ricardo Sanchis Nacher.
Ricardo Sanchis Nacher is the founder of Sanchis guitars and the grandfather of Ricardo Sanchis Carpio.
The shop of Ricardo Sanchis in Valencia was founded by Ricardo Sanchis Nacher in 1915. He has worked for guitar makers in Valencia for sometime, went to Madrid where he was befriended by Manuel Ramirez and Domingo Esteso. To perfect his craft, he remained in Madrid working for Domingo Esteso (the founder of todays Hermanos Conde guitars) for three years.
As a result, the Sanchis family has had close relationships with Esteso, and with his heirs, the Hermanos Conde, ever since.
It is a wonderful instrument characterized by its balanced and beautiful Spanish tone. It has this characterful old Spanish sound with a good bass and volume.
The guitar was built between 1930 and 1940. It has a spruce top and the back and sides are made of the finest cypress wood.
The guitar has been very well restored so that its originality has been preserved.
