Description: Acoustic Guitar - Romero classical
Arguably, the best guitars out of Spain are from Madrid and here is an exquisite example of a top end instrument from a Luthier recognized as among the top makers in the world today. Jose Romero started his careers in the famed Ramirez workshop like Paulino Bernabe (now in his 70's), and followed in the renowned Spanish Madrid tradition that Ramirez is notably recognized for. He spent eight years as a master craftsman before deciding to go out on his own and open his own workshop. This was in 1983, so a seasoned veteran builder at this point. Very powerful, and the quality in tone is gorgeous, with deep basses, round focused trebles. The guitar features a cedar top with Brazilian back and sides. One repair on the Brazilian back where a crack developed. Unfortunately, its not unusual for to this to happen with Brazilian. The guitar was purchased from a guitar dealer new in the early 2000s already repaired and I believe the repair was done by the maker. The crack has not changed in the 5 years I have owned this guitar. Otherwise the guitar is in excellent condition with just some see in the light type marks that you would expect in an older guitar. Incredible 51 mm nut(2inches), 650 scale, so playability is outstanding and effortless . Some measurements:
Upper Bout: 11 in.
Lower Bout: 14 1/2 in.
Body Depth Neck Heel: 3 3/4 in.
Body Depth Tail Block: 3&7/8 in.
