Hello, Flamenco/Classical enthusiasts. What we have here is a 1996 G.V. Rubio Flamenco Blanca with a factory installed L.R. Baggs Pickup.
Description: This is a loaded 1996 German Vasquez Rubio Flamenco Blanca. The top is master quality Spruce, sides and back are cypress, and all French Polish. This guitar lists new for $4200 . This is the perfect guitar for those performing in any live situation where you don't want to deal with bleed from microphones. An ideal guitar for crossover players as well as flamencos. The Cutaway also allows the player to reach the 20th fret with much greater ease than the standard guitars, which to me is a big buying and selling point if you find yourself having to go there.
I bought this guitar from the seller in the label picture about a year ago. It had the golpe tape on it which was coming up a bit on the corners and also had some slight finger wear around the soundhole. The guitar was sold to him by a pretty well known flamenco recording artist who I can't remember the name but i have seen his CD's in the stores, for whatever its worth.
Upon buying this guitar I had the worn tape removed and had the entire body refinished. The pickup was later inspected and works perfectly. It has no eq cut into it obviously and is simply a plug in towards the back like an acoustic guitar. The only issue with this guitar is cosmetic on the front, as it has grazing in the finish i had done, from one regretful night of chilly weather playing outside. Other than this strictly superficial flaw, the guitar is in very near mint condition.
