JERONIMO MAYA FLAMENCO GUITAR ESENCIAL NEGRA NEW 2012
Jeronimo Maya Flamenco Guitar Esencial negra 2012
This is a sensational, exclusive flamenco guitar developed by maestro flamenco guitarist Jeronimo Maya, luthier Vassilis Lazarides and La Sonanta. Jeronimo Maya signed the label of this guitar in the top right corner. This 'Esencial' model is identical to the 'Especial' Jeromino Maya model, the only difference to the 'Especial' model are the more economical, less luxurious, but still elegant, simplified decorations. Jeronimo Maya plays this flamenco guitar on his upcoming DVD and CD.
To have a professional, well balanced, lightweight, comfortable playability and a very Andalusian, older, more aged style chitarra and Cante Jondo sound, Jeronimo Maya, Vassilis and La Sonanta worked together to design this new flamenco guitar. The essential input from Jeronimo Maya as a maestro flamenco guitarist, Vassilis his knowledge of historical Arabic khitar construction and his perfect workmanship led to a very authentic flamenco sounding instrument.
The great particular, old sounding and responsive flamenco tone of this new Jeronimo Maya flamenco guitar is due to a special bracing and some historical chitarra design aspects. She has a lot of percussive power, the basses are very punchy and dark, she has an extremely quick response and a very well balanced tone with trebles that have a dry, clear singing and sweet touch.
The slender neck makes her very comfortable to play. The French polish finish is of an excellent quality and looks beautiful. The woods used for this guitar are of exceptional quality. Back and sides are made of beautiful old aged cypress and the soundboard is made of premium old aged German spruce with many essential cross silk grain patters. The rosette design is based upon one of the early authentic Torres rosettes. The tasteful, beautiful mother of pearl inlays in the rosette and the binding make this instrument an even more special and beautiful instrument.
Vassilis only makes a very limited amount of these Jeronimo Maya flamenco guitars per year in his workshop...for those flamenco guitarists, who are looking for a unique authenthic flamenco sound and professional playability.
