ABOUT THIS INSTRUMENT
Manual Reyes was arguably one of the most skilled and celebrated flamenco guitar builders of the 21st century. The Córdoba Reyes borrows elements from these highly prized, rare guitars and modifies certain elements to make them accessible to the modern player, resulting in a powerful, responsive flamenco guitar.
Like the majority of Flamenco “Blancas,” the Reyes is built with a solid Engelmann Spruce top and solid Cypress back and sides. It features a Spanish cedar neck topped with an African ebony fingerboard.
Cordoba has added a few modern refinements, such as a truss rod, geared tuning machines, durable finish, and non-gut strings.
The result is an instrument that exemplifies the authentic Reyes design, voicing, and feel, and captures a rare piece of guitar making history.
The signature quality of a Reyes guitar is in its dual personality – when played gently, it sings sweetly with a beautiful melodic voice, yet when driven hard, the biting, aggressive side is released.
