Beautiful Marlon Navarro Negra flamenco guitar. Marlon built this especially for me. I had been foolishly carrying around a vintage flamenco guitar to teach in my students' homes. I finally figured out it would be more prudent to carry around a less expensive guitar.

While I was at it I decided to fulfill a bug I had recently developed - after forty years of playing blancas I thought I would try a Negra. Unfortunately however - perhaps it's a case of "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" - although it sounds terrific, I just can't get used to the different sound, especially in the bass.

Marlon naturally gives every guitar his all, but he said he would make something "special" just for me. He certainly did, but I am going to stick with blancas. This guitar looks great and sounds great, and in addition to being a fine flamenco guitar it is perfectly suitable for classical guitar music as well. I think it will make someone very happy.

I played it once for a short while, and it is in pristine original new condition. Price includes a hard shell case, two extra sets of La Bella flamenco guitar strings, and free shipping.

NOTE: The four dark areas in the lower part of the photo of the back are just reflections.

Upon reflection, even though this guitar is genuinely brand new - I have played it once for about half an hour - perhaps technically speaking it might be considered used, so I am reducing the price to $995.

That's a beautiful guitar. Good luck with the sale. If I didn't already have a nice flamenco negra guitar, I would love to buy this...

Sorry, I'm somewhat tech challenged, and at the moment can't make any sound clips. But soon I plan to learn how - too late for this particular guitar. It sounds great though.

Hi Ramon,

I'm curious about two things. One, is Marlon's work on-par with Francisco's by this point, or does Papa still have the lead in luthiery skills?

Second, what's the very top-of-the-line Navarro (by either Navarro padre o Navarro hijo) like? Something on a 1A or Elite level of build. Do they get to that level of excellence?

David, at the flamenco site (Foro) Marlon's flamencos have receive excellent reviews--a very good instrument at a good price. Not necessarily related to the quality but another factor to throw into the mix is that Navarro guitars have used D. retusa (Cocobolo) which already is 0n Appendix II and it seems probable tomorrow, Jan. 2,may not negatively affect him like other folks.
be true to the one you love but have many flings with different guitars
