This is a brand  new, hand-crafted guitar made by the master luthier Abel Garcia Lopez who is  widely to be the best luthier in Mexico. I first heard of him from the great  Spanish luthier, Felix Manzanero, who in the mid-1970s was the first of many  master luthiers to go to Paracho to give workshops. While Felix told me that  Abel Garcia was the best of his students, this instrument shows that he is a  true master. Pepe Romero is among the many professional players who have bought  from him. Abel Garcia has a three year waiting list, so we consider ourselves  very lucky to have gotten him to make this guitar for us. The plantilla (shape)  is based on a Hauser-- but as Abel put it the bracing has evolved into his own.  While it is a small-bodied classical guitar, it has tremendous power, great projection,  perfect balance, and a wonderfully complex sonority. The basses are bold, deep,  yet refined. The trebles are clear and polished. This guitar's setup is  outstanding, making playability effortless
