Pedro Maldonado Senior NEW 2012 Indian Rosewood/Spruce 2012

This Pedro Maldonado negra could be one of the very last new negras made by the father. She is a true concert flamenco guitar. Already now, being new, she surprisingly projects a very snappy punch of a snare drum sound with a full richness to the body of each note, she has enormous power and an enchanting true, crispy flamenco sound. She is extremely well balanced and is effortless to play. For this new negra of Pedro Maldonado we have chosen top-notch first grade, old aged woods from the workshop of Pedro Maldonado. The German spruce top and the Indian rosewood are over 40 years old. Pedro also put some more elaborate details in his work, the purflings and red tulip inlays in the rosette makes this new negra also very beautiful to the eye. The French polish finish is very well done. Even the most demanding flamenco guitarist could not ask anything more, this is his is how a flamenco negra should be.

Pedro Maldonado was born in Loja (Granada) in 1929 in Las Parras Street. 
His father was a furniture maker and Pedro junior began helping his father
 in the carpentry shop when he was a teenager.
 Very soon Pedro Maldonado junior was interested in guitar building and other
 instruments. He dreamed to make these fantastic instruments with his own
 hands. In 1950 his father took him to Granada in order to develop this art with 
the help of some guitar makers from the famous "Escuela Granadina". There he 
met Manuel de la Chica, Eduardo Ferrer an Antonio Robles, all of them 
famous guitar builders in this Arabian city, teaching the young
 Pedro the mysteries of guitar construction. Pedro fell in love with the sound of the flamenco guitar and started playing it
 with great pleasure. Sometimes "Radio Loja" contacted him to accompany the
 flamenco singers of the area. 
It was in 1959 when Pedro Maldonado decided to open his first workshop in
 Calle Caus 16 where he started making his first guitars. Currently Pedro works with his sons Pedro and Luis also born in Loja in 1959 and 1961. They each began working with their father at the age of fifteen. Maldonado's flamenco guitars have the duende and soul that flamenco players seek and are used by Vicente Amigo, Pepe Romero, Manuel Cano, Sergio Lara, Diego Vargas, Strunz and Farah and many more.
