Information

This is a very fine instrument by Barcelona master Francisco Simplicio.

The sound of this guitar is particularly magnificent with a deep bottom and lyrical trebles. This effect is enhanced due to its installed brass 'tornavoz'.

Beautiful and ornate carving and inlay work with striking materials.

Despite its age, it has never been re-finished.
