Vicente Carrillo Pasion Flamenco Negra Spruce and Cocobolo, 2014


Instrument Categories: ,

This Vicente Carrillo Pasion Flamenco Negra model, was built during 2014 in Casasimarro, Cuenca Spain where his family has built since 1744; Vicente is the seventh generation. Casasimarro is roughly between Madrid and Valencia, about 220km southeast of Madrid.

Vicente Carrillo has been building instruments all his working life. Largely influenced by traditional Madrid based builders, his instruments are very high quality and used by professionals and semi-professionals worldwide. He currently has a workshop with about five skilled luthiers on staff.

This 2014 Vicente Carrillo Pasion Flamenco Negra is a bit of a rarity for us. It pairs a cross or lattice braced thin German Spruce top with Cocobolo for the sides, back, head plate and 12-hole bridge. The traditional integrated neck is Spanish Cedar (Cedrela Odorata, neither Spanish or Cedar) and the fingerboard is Ebony. Tuners appear to be excellent Gotoh 35G1800 models and the nut and saddle are bone. The finish is gloss, with a light amber tint to the top.

This example also sports a Carlos Juan VIP double pickup set, with the 9v battery mounted to the upper bass side of the back, controls tucked under the bass side of the sound hole, and the electronics themselves integrated into the end-pin jack.

Overall this guitar is in good condition, and a crack to the top was repaired and cleated at The Twelfth Fret Repair Shop.

The original hard shell case is included.

Here is the builder on the Vicente Carrillo Pasion Flamenco Negra:

“We seek to incorporate into our flamenco guitars that spirit or duende capable of reflecting the emotional intensity of the flamenco guitarist in each piece he plays.

Our “Pasión Flamenco” guitars have earned in their own right a space of honor among the most select of our flamenco guitar.
The internal construction system, together with extensive experience working with the elite of flamenco guitarists, has allowed us to develop unique features in our guitars.

With a bright and percussive sound, its balanced power and depth are a hallmark, a characteristic mark of these instruments.”
