Jose Romero Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1995

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

This Jose Romero Flamenco Blanca guitar was built during 1995 at Romero’s shop in Madrid in the pattern of traditional Flamenco instruments.

Jose Romero was born in Baeza (Jaén) during 1954 but his family soon moved to Madrid, and aside from his compulsory military service, has lived and worked there since. In 1968 Romero enrolled as an apprentice with José Ramírez. After a layoff for the compulsory service, he returned to Ramirez and passed exams qualifying as Master Craftsman. Eight years later, he left Ramirez to found his own shop, where he focuses on Flamenco instruments.

Here we are looking at a Jose Romero Flamenco Blanca guitar in very good condition, signed and dated to 1995. It pairs a Spruce top with Cypress for the back and sides, and Spanish Cedar or Cedro for the neck. The fingerboard is Ebony, and Indian Rosewood is used for the head plate, bridge, binding and heel cap. The head plate features a marquetry decoration, using several coloured woods. The top bracing is Spruce, while the back bracing is Cedro. The top has two protective plates – the full size Golpeador, and a small section behind the tie block to protect the top from string ends. This guitar has not had the 12-hole tie block conversion.

It is built in the traditional Spanish style with slipper heel, where the sides slot into the neck block.

This guitar is in overall very good shape with a couple of small dents – one is on the side, near the treble heel, the other on the lower treble bout side. It plays well – Flamenco guitars tend to have lower action to facilitate rapid playing. The sound is bright, as expected from a Flamenco guitar, with good definition and clarity. This is a very good instrument.

A Superior brand hard shell case is included.
