Manuel Velazquez was born in 1918, and began building in the 1930s, he is widely consider a world class maker, and his guitars have been played by Andres Segovia, Julian Bream, and many others. This guitar was made in 1961 with magnificent German spruce top, of a quality that is rarely seen these days. The back and sides are build of Brazilian rosewood. Normal finish wear for a guitar of this age, very clean in appearance, with no notable discolorations. The top has a rich, aged color. The guitar has been stored since 1983 in a closet, untensioned. The neck is straight. There are no cracks, or bellying up, or seam separations, it does need a tiny repair-- a re-glue of a back brace, which should be done by a professional luthier. Even with old strings, this guitar has a rich stone, responsive action, and is easy to play. The set up is a hair over 3mm at the 12th fret. This is a very nice concert guitar from a noteworthy luthier.
