Product 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 instrument 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. This guitar’s rosette is very specific of Fleta’s work and inspired by the famous late nineteenth century guitar makers. The innermost and outermost part of the guitar’s rosette consists of a herringbone pattern ring. In the middle of those two rings, the central mosaic is in the shape of blossoms. This instrument has a cedar top and Indian rosewood back and sides. It is equipped with Fustero machine heads. This guitar is a true rarity for guitar collectors and players. A hard-shell case is included.

There is a small hairline crack on the top, which is hardly noticeable and seems to have been there from the beginning. It is stable and does not go through the entire thickness of the wood. Some slightly milky spots are visible under the original varnish, the latter being original and having been repaired in one place on the back.

The audible power and spontaneity of this instrument are impressive. Fleta guitars are known for their powerful sound, but this model from 1991 has also a light and playful character. The soundboard reacts very fast and direct and the guitar inspires with many different timbres. Also the playability is really excellent. The trebles are distinguished by a particular finesse and delicacy, and the sustain of the guitar is impressive. The result is a wonderful guitar with a deep and
