Pedro Maldonado Sr was born in Loja, Granada in 1929. The son of a carpenter while still a boy he developed a great affection for the guitar. At nine, he was already cutting wood in the shape of guitars in his father's workshop. Because of the Spanish civil war, his education was interrupted, and he was not able to finish school until 1946. In 1950, after doing his military service, he went to Granada and apprenticed with the luthiers Manuel de la Chica (1911-1998) and Miguel Robles (1902-1970), crediting the later guitar maker as being his primary teacher. Maldonado's flamenco guitars have the duende and soul that flamenco players seek, and are used by Vicente Amigo, Pepe Romero, Manuel Cano, Sergio Lara, Diego Vargas, Strunz and Farah, and many more. Maldonado's stature is such that Luis F. Leal Pinar devotes an entire chapter in "Guitarreros de Andalucia" (2004) to him.

This 1993 flamenca blanca has everything players look for in a flamenco guitar. It has been treasured, and is generally in great shape. There is enough bone on the saddle to lower the action significantly should one choose to do so.
