Ignacio Fleta (1897-1977) belongs to the most famous luthiers worldwide. Not only did he build guitars, but also violins, violas, violoncellos, vihuelas, and violas da gamba. After his death, his work was continued by his two sons Gabriel and Francisco Fleta and his grandson Gabriel Fleta Jr. The waiting time for a new guitar amounts to approximately 20 years. From 1992 to 2016, this beautiful Fleta belonged to Angelo Romero.
The rosette consists of two rings with herringbone pattern on the innermost and the outermost part and is magnificently decorated. In the middle of those two rings another ring can be found which shows a mosaic in the shape of blossoms. The top is made of cedar and the sides and the back are made of Indian rosewood. The guitar is equipped with Fustero tuning machines. The overall condition is excellent; it has a few signs of playing on the top and on the back. This guitar is a true rarity for guitar collectors and players. A hardshell case is included.
