Since Juan Montes started working together with the acclaimed flamenco guitarist and pedagogue David Leiva, the Juan Montes flamenco guitars have become really excellent instruments with a tremendous percussive flamenco attack and excellent flamenco playability. This 135M blanca has a short scale of 650 mm making her particularly suitable for guitarists with smaller hands. Aesthetically she has an excellent quality of workmanship. Juan always has been striving to make guitars with a very good price versus quality ratio. With this interesting priced 135M Juan Montes enables more flamenco guitarists to own a really excellent flamenco guitar offering all a serious flamenco guitarist or teacher needs. Affordable great flamenco guitars are more and more difficult to find in Spain, so we are very happy that Juan Montes enables us to offer you such a fine flamenco instrument.
