Luciano Maggi Flamenco Guitar 2015 Spruce Cypress

Comments:

This is a very interesting guitar.  She is classified as a Shaula Flamenco by Luciano (see label photo).  The internals are amazing (see photos).  The guitar is quick, loud, percussive, a monster in every regard.  She is also in excellent condition, with just the slightest tap marks in and around the rosette and the bridge, (wholly expected from a professional level flamenco).  I would have thought it would be worse, but she was very well taken care of in all regards.  The old style wooden pegs work very well.  I was able to tune it up very quickly and easily.

The guitar is seriously worked on the inside.  I cannot say enough.  There is bracing, X patterns, air flow holes in the soundbars, bracing on the back, and so on.  It’s a marvel to look at the inside of this guitar.  I suppose he knows what he’s doing simply because the guitar delivers.  Extraordinary is the word.

The price includes an Italian built HSC and Express Shipping to the 50US

From the owner, who knows Luciano well, ”

The purpose of the diaphragm is to allow the air column flow through the sound port to be reversed in direction in respect to the sound hole flow.
In other words, when the air is going into the sound hole, it is expelled from the sound port and vice versa.
This prevents the air flow to fight against itself as it is the case in a traditional single hole guitar and it allows for much greater dynamics without the compression effect typical of when a guitar is being pushed to its limits.
It also allows the sound wave to be ‘formed outside of the guitar’. What I mean by that is that the air flow is almost circulating ‘through’ the guitar through the two holes, completing the circle outside of the guitar, where the audience is. The sound resulting is therefore perceived as ‘right there’ and coming from all around by the audience, rather than boxy as sometimes is the case even with traditional concert guitars.
I realize this all sounds like mumbo jumbo, but to hear is to believe.
The projection of this type of construction is really something one has to hear to believe it. To really appreciate all this you should play this guitar in a huge hall. After all, it is a concert guitar.
The dimensions of the small holes on the diaphragm also play a big role.
So much so that the guitar can be tuned and completely change sound character if you experiment any combination of plugging them up.
However, the best projection and volume is achieved with the holes open, just as it came.”

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

We have a guest professional flamenco artist coming to the gallery to record the flamenco guitars here.  He’ll do a helluva better job than me, that’s for certain LOL..
