About This Listing

The 1A in 1997 was Burguet's top of the line concert model at the time, this beauty is loud enough for any concert hall. It was made in a small family run shop in Valencia, Spain. It's a very robust and powerful sounding guitar but can retain a lot of sweetness in the harmonics too. Easily the loudest and longest sustaining classical guitar that I've played. I am the second owner after the first had passed away and it was used as a flamenco guitar before, hence the tan lines in the top from the previous guards. They have faded into the top in the time that I've owned it so they will eventually fade to a matching color with enough window light. Only a few very small nicks in the finish as shown in the pictures, one behind the bridge and the other at the bottom of the top, neither are deep enough to cause damage to the top.

This has a fan braced German spruce top with beautiful cross grain that the pictures don't do justice, it's more vibrant in person. The back and sides are either B.R. or I.R. and are very fragrant from the sound hole. I believe the bridge is B.R. due to the color and grain pattern. Three piece mahogany neck with ebony fretboard and R.W. topper at the headstock, with bone nut and saddle. The top has a French polish finish while the back and sides are nitrocellulose but I could be mistaken. I had a luthier professionally install a mother of pearl side dot at the 7th fret also.

Scale length is 650mm and has been strung with fresh Savarez Alliance normal tension carbon strings. Nut width is 52mm and the action at the 12th fret is 4mm for the bass side and just over 3mm for the treble side.Tuners are smooth and without issue, frets are in excellent condition with no grooves or wear. Serial number is 0071. I would love to keep this but I prefer cedar top classicals and I need to thin the herd. Includes a Protégé Humicase. Feel free to ask questions or request more pictures!

Thanks for checking it out!
