#15 Spruce and Cypress Flamenco (student)

Number 15 is a light, fun, and percussive Flamenco guitar. At only 1.5 pounds, it is seriously light. Did I mention it’s light?

This instrument has proper flamenco action with the strings only 9mm off the top. A golpeador allows endless golpe tapping, and the frets provide a lively growl to the strings when driven hard. This is everything I was hoping to achieve in a flamenco guitar. I built this in the style learned from my lessons with Paco Charobo.

This instrument has the following characteristics:

  • Engleman top.  Perfectly quartersawn with no runout. Thin protective golpeador to allow proper playing.
  • Spanish Cypress back and sides.
  • Spanish Cedar neck
  • Rocklite Sundari fingerboard. This is a stable manufactured paper product that is made to look just like East Indian Rosewood. But it is lighter and more stable.
  • Yucatan Rosewood bridge
  • Walnut bindings with black and red purflings
  • Rosewood friction pegs
  • 650mm scale length, 53mm nut width, 42 mm center to center string spacing at nut
  • Partial 20th fret for upper 2 strings
  • Paco Charobo bracing pattern
  • Hiscox case available
