Rafael Moreno Rodriguez, 2004 Flamenco / Concert guitar crafted in Granada Spain
Rafael Moreno Rodriguez, 2004, Flamenco / Spanish Concert guitar crafted in Granada, Spain. There are just a handful of luthiers in, and around, Granada who make guitars that equal those made by Rafael Moreno. Out of that handful, I believe “Moreno” guitars are the very best value for money. He makes a handful of guitars each year. He never compromises on quality and only has one level of build; the very best. INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AVAILABLE. Reputedly, he has held stock of tone woods for over 30 years and makes his Spruce tops just a little thicker than most. He believes this adds depth to the sound and it improves the longevity of the instrument. Snr Moreno began making instruments at a very early age. He studied lutherie from masters and prefers to work alone, primarily with hand tools. This guitar is the 196’th guitar in the line. Whether you’re looking for a Flamenco guitar, or a Concert guitar, this instrument will not disappoint. It offers a huge range. The low ends boom and the trebles shimmer. In fact the upper register offers a tone that most nylon string guitars cannot achieve. So, if you’re looking got a guitar that is the perfect companion, this Moreno is likely to be your ideal choice. Try it. If you’re in the UK, please contact me and we will see if we can arrange for you to try the guitar. I'm near Cambridge UK Case? Yes, it is supplied with a good hard case. Condition: It has been used and well loved by the previous owner. He was a guitar teacher and owned a number of beautiful guitars. This was clearly one of his favourites. The French polish on the back shows a little wear now with the original polish finish looking a little flat. It’s better that the guitar has been used and played in, rather than being a “case queen”. It’s now ready for the next owner to enjoy. Shipping: I can ship internationally. If you don’t see a price, please ask. Let me know your zip code and I can get you an accurate cost.
