An extraordinary guitar from one of the best guitar builders in Spain.
Barba is considered today one of the five best Flamenco guitar builders in Spain.
This instrument is from the time Francisco built guitars alone without his sons. Barba is now making his way up in the ranking list to one of the most sought-after guitar builders, shortly behind Reyes.
The wood selection is absolutely top quality as always.
It has phenomenal ringing trebles and a distinctive, crispy bass. The cedar soundboard gives it a lot of power without the conventional cedar sound. It is in very good condition with only a few traces below the golpeador, a scratch behind the bridge from a ruptured string and a few small marks on the back.
A great instrument that is not easy to find.
