Description

Ignacio Fleta (1897-1977) is one of the most famous luthiers of the twentieth century. In addition to being a successful guitar maker, he was a recognized bowed and ancient instruments luthier (violins, violas, cellos, vihuelas, and violas de gamba). After his death, his work was continued by his two sons Gabriel and Francisco Fleta and later by his grandson Gabriel Fleta Jr. The current waiting time for a new guitar is about 20 years.
Fleta follow a different concept than other Spanish luthiers from, for example, Andalusia. Their guitars are characterized among other things by a 9-fan-bracing instead of 5 or 7-fan bracing.

Many players and aficionados consider Ignacio Fleta’s 1970s guitars as the golden cedar period of his career due to their magical, powerful, and rich sound. This beautiful 1973 guitar, numbered 637, is indeed no exception. Its dark cedar soundboard perfectly matches its haunting, mysterious, and dark tonal characteristics. Adding to it the striking Indian rosewood back and sides, this instrument is truly a treat for the eyes. Most importantly, this guitar has been well-preserved throughout its life and is now in a rare-to-find condition with no structural damage. Only the finish of this guitar has been refreshed masterfully. Furthermore, the poetic voices and colors of this instrument will bring any musical work into the world of storytelling. Other remarkable characteristics of this guitar are its G# body resonance, almost cello-like, and its excellent separation of voices, especially when playing chordal passages. This is undoubtedly a fine example from one of the greatest luthiers of the 20th century. A very desirable instrument for both collector and performer.
