A rare chance to own one of the worlds most prestigious flamenco guitars. Francisco Barba from Seville and Manual Reyes from Cordoba are considered the best of the best makers of powerful and vibrant sounding guitars. Many of the worlds top players have chosen to play Francisco Barba including Niño de Pura, Manuel Molina, Rafael Riqueni, Pepe Habichuela. Francisco’s son Paco now carries on the family tradition.
This guitar was owned by ‘Jaco’ who played the guitar professionally in the UK. Tuners, strings and glue still in the case pouch! There are numerous nail marks on the guitar and the price reflects this. However, amazingly there are no cracks sadly common on lightly built flamenco guitars. It sounds just as it should and is very easy to play.
These guitars are collectable and desirable and are normally advertised for high sums of money. We have tried to access the correct valuation of this guitar in todays market. I think it’s the most competitively Barba you will find. Please ask for a full set of pictures.
Come and try this fine guitar it will not disappoint. Fine playing by Antonio Rey gives a good idea of a similar Francisico Barba in this 1976 guitar on YouTube:
