Guitar of the Week - Pedro Maldonado Flamenco

This week's guitar is a Pedro Maldonado Flamenco guitar, built in Spain in 1975. We got this guitar from the original owner, who ordered it directly from Maldonado.

About the wood

  • Spruce top (which has darkened considerably with age)
  • Cypress back and sides
  • Spanish Cedar neck
  • Ebony fingerboard
  • Rosewood bridge

About the sound

This Pedro Maldonado is the perfect Flamenco. It is lightweight, and has amazing tone. It has that barky Flamenco sound, but also has sweet, subtle tones. It has been played a lot over the years, which has only improved the sound.

This guitar has been well-loved, after all, it's 31 years old. It has a bit of a weathered look, but we think that just makes it better.
