Enrique Sanfeliu 1926 Guitar

Enrique Sanfeliu was born in 1882 in Valencia, Spain and as a child built small "toy" guitars for his friends. After hearing Tarrega play a concert in Valencia, he decided to devote his life to the guitar - not just as a player, but also as a maker. He later moved to Valencia where he worked in the workshop of Juan Estruch, and befriended Enrique Garcia, who shared his knowledge of lutherie with Sanfeliu. His instruments show the unmistakable influence of the later guitars of Enrique Garcia, as well as the instruments of his great protege - Francisco Simplicio - ornate marquetry, carved headstock, etc. It has a beautiful, old-world sound, also reminscent especially of Simplicio.

Perhaps the most famous player of Sanfeliu guitars was Agustin Barrios Mangore, whose famous Sanfeliu instrument bore his name in the headstock. This particular guitar was owned by a great collector who had over one hundred guitars in his collection including Torres, Fleta, Arias, Simplicio, Garcia etc. There are some minor repairs but very little. This is a very fine, rare and playable instrument by one of the great Barcelona masters of the twentieth century.
