New flamenco guitar
I acquired recently a Viuda & Sobrinos made in the early 40s in Madrid. It is a negra one with an extraordinary sustain and incredible deep sound. You can find a short video presentation by visiting my Facebook page. www.vintage-guitar-world.com

Interview by Simon Sargsyan for JazzBluesNews.Space
Rasgueo´s music is trying to achieve a balance between jazz´s intellectuality and flamenco´s emotionality
New flamenco guitar: Francisco Barba 1966
I had the opportunity to visit once more „Vintage Guitar World“ in Michelstadt during a mini tour in Hessen with „Four Styles“. The flamenco guitar collection there is becoming bigger and more interesting. This time I found there a significant choice of guitars made by some of the best guitar builders such as Gerundino, Miguel Rodriguez, Manuel Reyes, Manuel de la Chica and Francisco Barba. It is such a beautiful experience to play and compare different guitars of greatest value and appreciate the qualities of each one! Though I was not initially interested on buying another guitar, it was impossible to resister to one of the finest guitars I have ever tried, a 1966 Francisco Barba. You can find a short video with this amazing guitar played by myself, by visiting the facebook-page of „Vintage-Guitar-World“.
