My new guitar: Flamenco guitar made by Manuel Rodriguez e hijos. Made in Madrid,Spain

Just got this at Guitar Center for half price. It is a flamenco guitar, made for that type of music. More brittle sound. It has great intonation all the way up the neck

It is really easy to play. What is great is on classical stuff like Bach, keeps in tune in higher frets and is so much easier to play barre chord arpeggios in these types of pieces. Lower action, so scales come off more smoothly.

Gonna sell my old Yamaha classical to finance this. Maybe even my little Peavy amp.

nice! i bought a chinese Guild OM last year - but very well made: even the wood inside is planed & sanded. Great choice of woods means it really punches out sound!
