Romanillos Guitar

This guitar was made for exhibition at the Classical Guitar Retreat in Scotland and the West Dean Guitar Festival. It features Pau Ferro back and sides, a spruce top, Alessi tuners, and French polish finish. This guitar is based on a design by Jose Romanillos, rather than my own plantilla and strutting pattern, although tonally it is not that dissimilar to my standard guitars. This guitar has now been sold.

A few audio samples of the Romanillos guitar. The recording quality (and the playing!) are not up to the standard of those on the Samples page (as they are played and recorded by me), but they give some indication of the tonal qualities of this guitar.
