ESTEVE’s flamenco guitars are known for their bright and percussive sound. Well constructed using only the best woods.
The Esteve 5F Flamenco is light with an aggressive sound. To facilitate rapid sol runs, the action is lower than standard classical guitars. The guitar is also fitted with a transparent "tap plate" or "Golpeador" above and below the soundhole to protect the spruce top from heavy strumming and tapping.
Each Esteve 5F Flamenco Guitar is hand-crafted and glued to create precise balances. From the invisible careful sanding, even inside the body, that ensures the finished instrument's purity of tone, to the beautifully unique rosette inlays around the soundhole. Each guitar is a credit to its luthier and worthy of being handed down from one generation to another.
For this reason Esteve is regarded as the most consistent Spanish guitar manufacturer today.
The traditional Flamenco guitar woods are Spanish Cypress and Spruce. Guitars made with these woods are called blanca. These days sycamore is sometimes used instead of cypress. When rosewood and spruce are used for a flamenco guitar it is called a negra. Negra guitars are a more recent development popularized by Paco de Lucia. The negra's are often used for flamenco guitar solo performances rather than as an accompaniment to dancers and singers.
What is the difference between a classical guitar and a flamenco guitar
Flamenco guitars are built lighter with a bit less body depth, different bracing, and the neck angle is often slightly different. The goal is to have lower action and a more percussive sound than on a classical. Classical guitars usually tend to have more sustain, a higher action, and a richer voice.
Can you play flamenco on a classical guitar and vice versa
Yes, however flamenco guitars tend to not have the sustain of a classical and classicals tend to not be as percussive as a flamenco.
