This 1998 J.A. Pantoja Martin maple flamenco with pegs is excellent condition and looks almost new. J.A. Pantoja Martin is a traditional luthier, and craftsman of the old school. Every part of this handmade guitar (with the exception of the frets, tap plate and strings) he has made himself using hand tools. This is an old school flamenco guitar as well. Maple was the wood of choice for fine flamenco guitars until the 1930s when the depression dictated the use more economical woods and Spanish cypress became popular. The tone is sophisticated and full. It has both a refined, lovely, warm, smooth honey-like voice that one wants to play lyrical passages, plus the real bark one expects in a concert flamenco guitar. This instrument is in excellent condition. There is a nail mark on the top, near the neck, and a   small area on the back where French polish is dull. There is some color variation on the top, but it is   simply an artifact of the luthier's choice to use particularly seasoned piece of wood with better sonic properties than appearance.
