My most recent guitar 

I finished making this guitar just in time to bring it to the Los Angeles Guitar Festival May 17-19. Antonio Rey played it briefly and commented, "Wow, calidad." He wasn't allowing any recording while he was trying out guitars in the vendor hall. Here's a video of me making a sound sample with it:

Thanks for posting, guitar looks and sounds great. I always enjoy the yellow tint you use.
I remember the tapered back strip on a guitar you made last year.
Sounds like Antonio Rey enjoyed it. One day I would also like to try one of your guitars.

I use Kusmi button shellac, which I dewax by centrifugation. No added color.

That guitar is downright purdy. I like the "canastera" style rosette a lot. Very distinctive.

Great as always. We don’t need Antonio to play it to hear the brilliance and clarity in the trebles, that is totally lacking in a lot of these low mid heavy modern guitars that get on my nerves. They are going for punchy dry basses but there is no sparkle like your guitar has. Love that piece too, one of my favorites.

Thanks for the kind words, guys.

Rob, I appreciate your use of the word "canastera." A tie to flamenco, traveling Gitanos (Canasteros). I hadn't thought of that. Maybe that should be the name of the guitar model. Or at least the rosette.

Hey, Ricardo, you know all those arpeggios near the beginning and after the tremolo section that go ami ami ami etc? Do you think Paco played them all free stroke? I have to use rest stroke on "a" to get the sound but I can't play them so fast that way and it seems like he uses all free stroke in similar things I've seen in videos. I wonder what your take is.

RE: My most recent guitar (in reply to Ricardo

At the LA guitar show there was an evening event where all the luthier built guitars were played to the audience, there were three that really stud out : there was Peppe Jr classical but not sure which one, there was Mark’s (???) from Canada modern romantic shaped guitar, and the one Ethen submitted. Lot of variables for sure but Ethan’s flamenca caught my attention.

There was a live stream on line but they took it down :/ I asked Tavi, the event organizer, for a copy of mine being played. I had arranged for someone to record with my phone but they had to leave just before.

I played many of the guitars but I’m not sure I had my hands on Ethens. It was just a bit overwhelming…

Video evidence from this piece, there are two, shows rest stroke on the anular finger was definitely going on. The speed he goes is ridiculous. Good video angle of the technique on the Granaina that uses the same tech. I would use tirando myself, and it seems Paco did away with the technique at some point later on in his career. Actually, I will admit I do use it here and there.

Thanks, Ricardo. Tirando is free stroke and apoyando is rest stroke, right?
