The selection of woods used for this instrument is cedar of exceptional sound quality that has been under a cure that lasted several years for the soundboard, and cypress of stunning beauty and features for the body (sides and back), its grain straight and uniform.
Thanks to the selection of woods Jesús de Jiménez used on this instrument, its sound is exquisite to the ears of both amateurs and professionals of flamenco, offering exquisite depth and power on the bass strings, together with brilliant and crystalline trebles, as well as great harmonic balance between bass and treble, giving it its typical and unmistakable sound.
This guitar offers perfect comfort on both of the guitarist’s hands.
The pulsation of this guitar is of medium tension with the strings at the perfect height for performance.
The guitar is in a very good condition, it only has a couple of cracks on the back, and it has been revarnished.
