1961 Arcangel Fernandez Blanca Flamenco Guitar #157 Spruce Cypress


This guitar is in good condition.  All original, one crack (repaired) on the top, one crack in the back (repaired well) running a good 3/4 of the way from the butt. There is a bit of wear to the finish on the back, some typical dings and nail marks (she is a flamenco, after all).  She has the older white golpes traditional back in the day.  I have attempted to take full HD photos of the areas of concern.  They seem to be stable, no movement, but I am all about full disclosure.  I do not ever play games in my descriptions or my offerings of guitars.

Trained by Marcelo Barbero, Arcangel took over the mantle of finest flamenco builder in Spain for the latter of the 20th Century.  This guitar has an angelic voice, proof positive the man was a true master of the craft and the art of flamenco lutherie.

This guitar is so light and airy, with incredible response and a full throaty voice.   She is as real as it gets.  I may do the reparation work to the guitar, where the price will jump significantly once complete.  As it is, the guitar can be had for the listed price.  Please call me if interested.  Rich Sayage 631-335-5447

PS – I am restoring the guitar to the best we can manage.  I will report on its condition. when complete and list her price as well.

02-01-2018 – The restoration went very well, stabilizing all “old” repairs, which were done very poorly.  No visible light, nothing is escaping the guitar.  Finish was more difficult to fix as the cracks were significant, especially the top and the back cypress, but still, they blend better as a result of the work.  The setup and the play were vastly improved as well.   In all, a good process, one that benefits the guitar that represents a good piece of history.  The guitar is unavailable as of the 1st of February, 2016.  RF Sayage
