2020 Vicente Carrillo Primera Cedar EIRW

This is a standard Primera model by Vicente, Western Red Cedar and Solid East Indian Rosewood (EIRW).  Accented by Gotoh Premium 35G510P machines, it also comes with a Cibeles Vicente Carrillo HSC.  The guitar is quite the resonant beast, workmanship very good.  Golpes were installed, but they could be better.  I will attempt to flatten them and remove the air bubbles (see photos), but I do not have high hopes.   The price is set below $4K to compensate.  Worth it, as this is far from a structural issue, all while being a beautiful Spanish classical with the character that one would want in a traditional classical.

Vicente Carrillo builds his guitars in Casasimarro Spain, about 100 miles West of Valencia, Spain.  Vicente is quickly becoming one of my favorite Spanish builders.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich

MP3 Audio200403-2020 Vicente Carrillo Primera Cedar EIRW – the guitar is fun to play.  I love an authentic Spanish guitar experience, which this has in total.  Lovely sustain, without ringing along too much, bold, direct and balanced in her voices, with a touch of darkness anticipated in a Cedar Rosewood guitar.
