Monica | Flamenco Custom

Flamenco Custom Guitar Model: “Monica”

With an appearance that is almost deceptive, the “Monica” gives you the impression that she is soft and gentle in nature. After playing a single note, you sense a playfulness and joy from her voice, but upon striking a chord, she releases a sound resembling a sharp, direct attack.

This elegant lady is built with traditional, historical dimensions. Weighing less than 2.2 pounds, it has a scale length of 655 mm, a body width of 238 mm, a lower bout of 312 mm, and sides that are 94 mm in depth. It is built with European Cypress sides and back, German Spruce belly, Indian Rosewood bridge, Cedar neck, and African Ebony fingerboard. The superstitious Flamencos will not consider this guitar “bad luck” since there are no dark woods on the sides and back.

Beautiful in appearance, a soul of integrity. This is why I named her after my sister.

I have played with lots of different guitars and grew up in a family of Greek musicians. The one thing I noticed immediately with Delgado guitars is that It had an authentic spirit. I got excited again for the first time in years to hold and play a guitar. The love put into the instruments built gives me the feeling that it has a heartbeat of It’s own. I look forward to writing my songs through it.

I don’t know what I love the most about Delgado guitars, the way they look or the way they sound. I did a gig the other week at a club playing I had five separate people come up to me while I was still on stage and ask me what kind of a bass I was playing. They all complemented on the sound but I can guarantee you they all noticed the instrument as soon as they walked in the door. Three of them were guitarists, one was a bassist, and the fifth one was a drummer! Manuel has an unlimited amount of knowledge and attention to detail that is rare to find in anyone, regardless of what business you might be in. Delgado guitars not only look and sound great, they are inspiring each and every time you pick one up. It doesn’t get any better if each time you pick up your instrument, you are inspired to play or create.

I decided to return to the guitar at age 56 after recovering from a heart transplant. I wanted a single instrument that would last a life time. What I received from Manuel was a work of art that has a beautiful voice and a soul as well.
