Manuel Raimundo's guitars have been built in Valencia, Spain since the late 1960's. Starting in borrowed workshop space, Raimundo has grown to be a widely respected builder, winning many awards.

Today we have a Raimundo 1498e Requinto. The Requinto is a short scale (about 530mm or 22 inch) guitar, and are often tuned a fourth higher than a standard guitar. This higher tuning makes up for the short scale - tuned as a guitar, standard strings would be very loose and 'floppy'.

The small size of the requinto, and its identical fingering makes this a very good choice for a travelling guitarist who doesn't have a lot of room. It's also very good for those with smaller hands who desire a full, rich tone.

This Raimundo 1498e Requinto, from 2013, is a high-quality instrument built with solid Indian rosewood back,sides headplate and bridge, a Sitka spruce top and a traditional Spanish cedar neck with ebony fingerboard. The body is cutaway to allow access to the higher frets, and a Fishman Prefix pickup system is installed.

The scale length is 560mm and the nut width is 51mm.

This guitar is in excellent condition and the original case is included.
