Delgado Guitars

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.

Custom Classical w/cutaway available too (special order)

Steven Delopoulos

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 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.
