Jesus Bellido is a renown Spanish guitar maker from Granada. His father, Manuel Bellido, started to learn the Spanish art of guitar making in the 50s and this art is being continued by his sons today. Jesus Bellido started working in his father’s workshop at the age of thirteen and built his first guitar under his name at the age of seventeen. His work of course evolved over the years and today Jesus Bellido builds both his own model and copies of guitars made by Antonio de Torres, Santos Hernández, Louis Panormo, Jose Pages, Jose Pernas, and Manuel de la Chica among others.
This fine “Flamenco Especial” model was built in 2013 and is in excellent condition with no cracks nor repairs. It is a light flamenco guitar with percussive basses and strong mediums. The first two strings have a characteristic singing Granadinian tone and the overall volume of the guitar is quite impressive.
