  • DESCRIPTION

    A very rare find, this blanca is one of Gerundinio's earliest examples. Sound wise, it's got a very sweet honey/woody organic tone. It's very resonant due to a light build. Playability is great, low action with a little sizzle. Along with a 658mm scale length, this instrument is a great choice for long hours of play, gigs, no cejilla, etc. Materials are very high quality, including new custom Alessi tuners with black Mother of Pearl dots and buttons. The condition of the guitar is exceptional, with no cracks.

     

    Curiously the label displays Gerundino spelled with a "J" instead of a "G". We contacted his son to confirm that this was truly his build. Gerundino hijo confirmed that this guitar was built by his father. He also stated that in the sixties, Gerundino would sometimes use this label.
