1960, number 208
Good! The queen of my collection! The sweetest tone and direct contact to the history of the classical guitar.
This guitar was restored by Gabriel Fleta in the beginning of july 2021. Only very little work was required. Gentle filing of frets and a little french polish. Dokumentation from Gabriel Fleta attached. You find it in the pictures.
Cracks in the top which were repaired in the Fleta shop in 1981. Repairs can be seen in the pictures. Stable cracks. See documentation from Gabriel Fleta. The pictures above were shot BEFORE restauration.
|Top||Gabriel Fleta told me it is 150 years old spruce from a very rare selection in the Fleta shop. The high age makes the spruce top darker but also better sounding. It is pure joy and inspiration to play her!|
|Back and sides||
This guitar is built by the famous Ignacio Fleta, Barcelona 1960.
It is restaured in the Fleta shop in 2021. See documentation in pictures.
Ignacios grandson Gabriel Fleta told me this particular guitar was made from a very special selection of wood in the Fleta shop that was around 90 years old already when this guitar was built by his grandfather, Ignacio. Se document from the Fleta workshop.
