2013 Pedro Maldonado F1 #1796 Spruce CSA
This guitar was special ordered by its one owner, built by the father, with a large, mosaic Torres inspired inlay XIX Century Rosette, featuring two motifs of Mother of Pearl Inlay. Caviuna Rosewood Back and Sides, with a very tightly grained Alpine Spruce Top, which is over 40 years old. Medullar Rays with a traditional Orange patina, French Polish on all surfaces. The design work, rosette and binding work are superb in every regard. See attached photos. The man has taste. Signed and dated personally by Pedro Senior
She is incredibly responsive, with strong projection, and wholly rounded sound. Easily played, this baby sings, has bite and growl, with beautiful push in the bass and mids. I fell in love with her instantly.
The owner took spectacular care with her, thus she is in Excellent condition. I assure you, this is a guitar that you fall in love with immediately. She comes with an original and form fitted HSC (Rm brand, (the m is lower case on purpose), which I’ve not heard of previously, very nice case).
