Spruce soundboard, Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. Very Good Condition.
This is a really wonderful guitar with perfect balance, tone, volume and playability. It is what a great Spanish guitar should sound like in all registers.
Marcelo Barbero (hijo), famous in his own right, was the son of the very highly acclaimed and famous guitar maker, Marcelo Barbero. The guitar was made in the famous Arcangel Fernandez shop at Jesus y Maria 26 in Madrid. It is signed by Marcelo Barbero.
The instrument was originally made as a classical guitar so the previous owner, a flamenco guitarist, had the fingerboard expertly replaced with a slightly thicker ebony so the action would be more flamenco like. It plays very nicely as a classical guitar and the fingerboard can be easily replaced with a thinner ebony to be a little more classical in feel as it was originally intended, though all who have played it, like it just the way it is. The installed tap plates can also be very easily removed for even more volume, resonance, and sustain.
It is in very good condition with some surface wear. There are no cracks or repairs.
