The blanca flamenco is built with a European spruce soundboard, Spanish or Canadian cypress back and sides, Spanish cedar neck, Indian rosewood or ebony fingerboard and Indian rosewood bridge with 12 hole tie block. Nut and saddle are made from cow bone.
Flamenco negra are available with any selection of dark woods
My signature rosettes are individually made and have a beautiful leopard skin pattern, which is also inlaid into the bridge tie block. My new “Kiwi” rosette makes use of the natural design of the native Panga fern.
I use hot animal glue for the most strategic joints on the soundboard (braces and bridge) and aliphatic resin for the others.
All necks are reinforced with an embedded carbon fibre rod or alternately a visible blackwood strip.
Standard tuners are Rubner. An upgrade to Irving Sloane or Gilbert is available. Traditional flamenco peg tuners can be ordered.
All instruments are French polished.
