1977 Jose Oribe Suprema Calidad Cedar Cocobolo


The guitar is in very good condition, first and foremost.  There are tiny nail marks in and around the rosette, small, insignificant, honest playing wear.  She was played, so this is expected, photographed to show this nail rash to the best of our ability.  The back and sides are stellar looking.

She’s also a tremendous guitar, setup somewhat low, where I may adjust slightly higher, raise the nut a touch.   Of course, the guitar will be polished and cleaned, fretboard and frets cleaned and oiled.  The guitar has sat in her case for a number of years, all well maintained.  She plays very well, almost too easy, with a big fat round sound, one that you expect from a guitar such as this.

Please note that I did a full setup on the guitar, raised the nut as discussed, leveled frets and buffed her out.  She looks and plays amazing, as evidenced by Doug Rubio’s performance below.

Jose is a meticulous builder, one of the grand-daddies of the business in North America, along with the likes of Manuel Velazquez.  This model was his premier offering to the playing public for many years back in the 1970’s and 1980’s, where he has always used the finest materials, woods, and methods to construct his fine offerings.  The Spanish character of the Madrid school is very evident in these guitars, especially this one.  It really does have that deep, fat, full and round sound that you would expect of a master instrument from the school, old school, which I personally enjoy and gravitate towards almost immediately.



MP3 Audio – 180907-1977 Jose Oribe Suprema Calidad Cedar Cocobolo– so very easy to play, with that huge fat round sound you would expect from a superior Spanish Cedar and yet the clarity!  I did a personal setup on the guitar, to relieve some low action, creating a bit of buzz.  No more, with high tension strings.  She plays and sounds beautiful.  Love these guitars from Jose.
