Product Description

Enrique Garcia was born in Madrid in 1868 and began an apprenticeship with José Ramirez I and possibly also with Manuel Ramirez at the young age of 15. He won the first price at the Chicago World Fair in 1893. Enrique Garcia is seen as the founder of the Barcelona school of guitar making as he strongly influenced many other guitar makers from Barcelona as Francisco Simplicio, Enrique Sanfeliù, Ignacio Fleta and many more. He was the most important and thought after guitar maker of the beginning of the 20th century and his guitars were played by the most recognised guitarists such as Domingo Prat and Francisco Tarrega.
This guitar built in 1903 by Enrique Garcia is simply incredible. It is in a remarkable state of conservation with only one small perfectly repaired crack on the top and one on the back. The varnish as well as the tuners and every part of this instrument are original. This traditional seven-fan braced guitar is one of the very few Cuban mahogany guitars built by E. Garcia.
This instrument is a full-size concert model and the air resonance frequency is very low, between F and F#.This extremely light guitar is incredibly lively and playful. It is phenomenally equal in all registers and can be played with fantastic ease. It is a fascinating instrument that will delight old world sound lovers, collectors and professional guitarists for sure.
