Manuel Adalid (b. 1951) is a second generation luthier, and head luthier at Esteve. He is among the most respected  luthiers in Spain but  also one of its most experimental and innovative guitar makers. Although the Esteve makes production guitars, Manuel Adalid maintains his own workshop within Esteve, where he carries on experiments. Made exclusively for Zavaleta's, the Emperor model concert classical guitar is a product of his investigations. It is built using the latest techniques. This guitar is built with a Spruce nomex sandwich top, with fan bracing) to produce an instrument of great power and volume, without sacrificing the distinctive character and bold sound of a Spanish guitar. A unique feature of this guitar is that the inner top consists of a smaller "suspended" Torres style top -- the smaller top brings out the mid-range notes, producing a concert instrument that is well-balanced. The trebles are focused, sweet, and polished. The basses are crisp and firm. It is well-balanced, even, and sings in every register. It has great intonation, and is setup perfectly. It is a guitar truly worthy of a professional player.
