Roosebeck Flamenco Guitar
Flamenco guitars are built with less internal bracing and with thinner tops than classical guitars, which produces a brighter and more percussive sound quality.
The Flamenco guitar was born in Andalusia, Spain in the early to middle 1800's. Both the structural design and the unique playing techniques allowed this guitar to add to the flamenco and not be drowned out by the dancer's thundering feet. The body is made with sheesham on sides & back; in a matte finish. The soundboard is spruce. The neck is sheesham with a sheesham finger board. The frets are nickel/steel, there are 19 frets on the neck. The tuners are classical gold 3X3 plank. The bridge has a sheesham base with lacewood top. Nut and saddle are bone.

SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS:
There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
For safety during shipping, the manufacturer don't tune the instruments before sending them to customers.
