Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra Guitar, 2005

Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra Guitar,  2005

Here we have a Pedro de Miguel Flamenco Negra guitar,  built in Madrid during 2005.  The key difference between Flamenco Negra and Classical guitars, aside from the use of Rosewood instead of Cypress for the back and sides –  is largely geometry.  The neck set on a Flamenco guitar is a bit higher, allowing for low action and the attendant rattle that’s part of the Flamenco sound.  Flamenco Negra guitars are becoming more common and often found in the ‘World Music’ context.

Gaetano Vinaccia Guitar, Naples 1829

Gaetano Vinaccia Guitar, Naples 1829

Here we’ re treated to a Gaetano Vinaccia guitar, dated to 1829 and listed as number 40, built in the Vinaccia shop in Naples. At the time, Italy was not a unified nation, with various states being under control of other neighboring empires. It was not until 1861 that Italy became a unified state under King Victor Emmanuel II. Vinaccia instruments are rare outside of museums. The 190 year old example here was restored in Holland some time ago, with a number of changes to help modernize the guitar and make it playable.
