2024 La Gitana ES

Continuing with the series of guitars using less conventional woods I am happy to present the first in the flamenco series: La Gitana. Keeping as close to tradition as I can I have selected European spruce for the top, this spruce is the usual timber employed in the manufacture of flamenco guitars. For the back and sides I have chosen English yew replacing the more usual selection of cypress. Like cypress yew is a softwood which is a relatively unique choice for back and sides, the norm being to use a hardwood such as rosewood. Yew is an interesting timber, it is the densest of the softwoods and displays a characterful grain and a beautiful golden colour, perfect in many ways for the guitar and very much in-keeping with the flamenco. The sound is rich and raspy with beautiful colour and punchy attack.
