Flamenco has very deep roots in Spanish culture and there have been many influential Spanish builders of both and Flamenco and Classical guitars. There are two basic types of Flamenco models, Blanca and Negra – light and dark.

William Laskin Classical Guitar, 2001

this guitar, built during 2001 at Laskin’s shop in Toronto, Canada, needs no decoration beyond the spectacular grain of its Brazilian Rosewood back, sides, headplate and bridge.

The bass bout includes the Laskin Arm-rest, designed to make the player more comfortable without compromising any of the tonal characteristics of the box. It is built in the traditional Spanish method, with a ‘slipper foot’ that the sides slot into.

SOLD! Ramirez SPR Spruce Top Classical Guitar, 2012

SOLD!  Ramirez SPR Spruce Top Classical Guitar, 2012

The Ramirez SPR classical guitar continues the tradition of the Ramirez 1a Especial model. Conceived by the maestro-luthier Amalia Ramirez, the SP-R furthers the evolution to the ‘modern’ sound. In the model designation, the SP refers to ‘Semi Professional’ and the R for Revised – this model supersedes and improves the original Ramirez SP. Based on professional grade model designs, the top of the Ramirez SPR is built at the Ramirez shop and the guitar completed offsite. The Ramirez home shop is not a large place, and Madrid doesn’t allow spray finishing within the city limits, so offsite completion is necessary.
