ROMERO, PEPE PEPE ROMERO - Spruce and Indian - 2000 $4000.00
2000, USA, #19. Solid German spruce soundboard, Indian rosewood back and sides, 650 mm scale, 52 mm nut width, 12 hole tieblock, french polished finish, slightly smaller body size - upper bout 10 3/4", lower bout 14 1/4 ", very comfortable to hold. This luthier is the son of the famous guitarist, Pepe Romero. The guitar has been played in concert by Pepe, Lito Romero, and Angel Romero. It appears on the cover of Angels "Bella" recording. Romero had the opportunity to study lutherie with J. L. Romanillos, Miguel Rodriguez, Dake Traphagen, and others. Consequently, early on, his guitars were of a very high quality. This instrument is an outstanding guitar. All the qualities of clarity, separation, projection and balance are exquisite. This is one loud spruce instrument with a smooth, full toned voice. The above mentioned artists who played this guitar in concert were not simply doing a relative a favor. The instrument delivers a great sound for a concert hall. Very slight signs of use, excellent condition.
