SE €.4000 Marcelino López Nieto 1971, Malmö, Sweden

Post by rinneby » Sun Dec 02, 2018 3:39 pm

- Luthier: Marcelino López Nieto
- Year of construction: 1971
- Scale length: 658 mm
- Nut width: 52 mm
- Top: Solid Spruce
- Back / Sides: Solid Indian Rosewood
- Condition: Excellent. You probably won't find another one like this.
- Price: 4000 Euro. A case is included in the price.
- Location: Malmö

Marcelino López Nieto is certainly one of Spain's greatest and most underrated luthiers of all time. The Summerfield book names him as one of the finest. Marcelino studied under Daniel Fortea and worked with and built guitars for Hernandez Y Aguado. This is a wonderful and well-preserved instrument from his best period (mid 60s to early 70s).

Everything is original, except a new bone saddle. Smooth Landstorfer tuners. The action is perfect and no cracks or repairs what so ever. The sound is very clear and almost church-like, as in 3d/reverb, with amazing sustain. Yet warm and focused with a certain "glow" to it. Playability is great and not at all like an old Ramirez 1A.

I've sent you a PM, but I'm pretty sure it not worth the hassle, shipping this guitar outside of EU.
