Marcelo Barbero (Hijo) 1962 – the amazing and deep sound of this guitar will definitely impress you. It has a dark and mystical touch.

The label reads “Marcelo Barbero (Hijo) para casa de Arcangel Fernandez”.
Marcelo Barbero is one of the greatest guitar builder the world has ever seen. Unfortunatelly he died young and could only train Arcangel Fernandez and his son.
Marcelo Barbero Hijo and Arcangel Fernandez produced guitars together in the same workshop for many years under the label “casa Arcangel Fernandez”.
Both of these luthiers belong indubitably to the greatest luthiers of Spain.

This guitar has a wonderful, dark sound with bold basses and strong trebles. It is incedibly loud and fills every room imediately with sweet tones.
It sounds like an old spruce top Miguel Rodriguez (at considerably lower price) from the same era. It has the raspy, open vibrant sound of a great mid-century flamenco while retaining the warmth and lyrical beauty of a great classical.

The condition of this Marcelo Barbero (Hijo) 1962 is excellent with only a small repair on the side and the golpeador replaced.

The guitar has a scale length of 665 mm and a nut width of 52 mm. It has a spruce top annd cypress back and sides. It is very well adjusted, with a low action and a straight neck.

This Marcelo Barbero (Hijo) 1962 is a great guitar built in one of the most famous workshops in Spanish guitar making history.
