Pedro Maldonado was born in 1929 in Loja Granada. He began making guitars in 1955 in Granada, receiving advice from Eduardo Ferrer, Manuel de la Chica, and Miguel Robles. He moved from Granada to Malaga in 1964. This guitar harkens back to an early part of his long carreer. The headstock is a early design, and differs from his current patterns. Pedro is still building at age 84 an occasional guitar, and works with his two sons Pedro Jr, and Luis.  The owner of this guitar, states that it has an unbelievably great flamenca negra sound, and is "my daily player, which I use with a cover." He reports "it has agorgeous sound (and is especially good with tarantas, rondena, and open tunings such as Manuel Cano's pieces frequently require." The guitar has been recently totally restored by the luthier German Vasquez Rubio. Several long humidity-related grain checks in the face were splined and cleated, especially beneath the bridge (see pics). The guitar also has a beautifully cleated crack, nearly invisible, on the treble side bout, and the guitar is now totally mechanically stable. German refinished the guitar with French polished shella, so the entire guitar has a flawless mirror-like finish. As part of the restoration, the guitar has been re-fretted, with the fretboard having been trued in the process. The set up was also adjusted at the same time, and new clear golpeador plate was affixed, as was a small clear string-burn guard near the bridge.
