Jose Romanillos 1969 Spruce Top Classical Guitar One of Three Made For Julian Bream

Labelled No 3

An extremely rare opportunity to purchase a guitar which is almost excellent condition and plays beautifully with a surprising amount of volume.

Playability is perfect, great clarity and the tone is far superior to many guitars I have tried.

A letter is also included confirming the authenticity and provenance from Liam, his son.

Jose Romanillos has established himself as one of the greatest luthiers of the twentieth century. His instruments have been played by Carlos Bonell, Gilbert Biberian, and Antigoni Goni, among many others. But the best known champion of these guitars is Julian Bream, who performed on them almost exclusively for much of his career. This particular guitar is one of the final instruments built before Jose retired to Spain in 1995. The label bears his signature as well as his son Liam's who had been partnered in the business since 1991. The instrument has all the qualities of an exceptional guitar; a sweet and lyrical tone with excellent separation. The volume is excellent.  All in all, this is a remarkable musical instrument. Condition is excellent, with no cracks or repairs. Finish is original with only some normal signs of playing wear. Suitable for either performer or collector, a masterpiece from one of the top luthiers of the 20th century.
