Juan Hernandez Romance #196 Spruce Madagascar RW


Beautiful guitar built by Juan, carved headstock, superb woods, great sound and play.  A superb value hand built in Valencia, Spain.



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.  Thanks.  Rich

MP3 Audio – 200710-Juan Hernandez Romance 196 Spruce Madagascar – absolutely superb instrument.  She has power, clarity and voice.  Made me laugh.  Some rough sketches and Sor simply to highlight the ranges and the depth of the guitar.  Blooming basses, very sensitive all around.  Every single guitar on the planet should have a lot of what this guitar has at its disposal.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
