Ignacio Fleta of Barcelona, vihuela, 1961, nr 3.
This vihuela, originally understood to be one of only six by the legendary Ignacio Fleta, is obviously extremely rare. This vihuela's sound qualities and volume is unique compared with others at time of purchase and since. The quality of the rose and other decorations on the front of the vihuela is very attractive. As well as being of interest to a player of vihuela music this may also interest the collector of Fleta's instruments.
Body is rosewood with attractive figuring and colour, front is European spruce with amber colouring. Tuners are wooden pegs nicely carved, rosewood presumably and all in working order. Scale length is 65 cm, neck width 56mm. The appearance of this instrument is very attractive and particularly for a 50 year-old instrument. The back has two tight, glued cracks and the front has one either side of the neck joint and two below the bridge. All of these have been well stabilised.
