This is a beautiful guitar built by Marcelo Barbero Jr in the workshop of Arcángel Fernández. When Santos Hernández died, his widow asked Marcelo Barbero (father) to finish the guitars of her husband. Later he will train Arcángel Fernández. When Marcelo Barbero father dies, his wife will ask Arcángel Fernández to train his son. Faithful to the origins and heritage of Santos Hernández, these three luthiers are among the greatest names in Madrid lutherie.

This guitar dates from 1987 and is in perfect condition. The presence of Arcángel Fernández can be felt at all levels. The work of lutherie and the finishes are very neat. The sound qualities are incredibly beautiful, the tone is both deep and singing, the notes are rich in harmonics, vibrant and expressive. The low setting and the reactivity make it easy and pleasant to play. An exceptional instrument...
