Like New 2002 Vicente Carrillo Classico Rio Brazilian Rosewood Guitar. The guitar is a concert level instrument. It is also a work of art: the back and sides are a beautiful, high grade of Brazilian rosewood, predominantly dark with a curved grain, with the edges of the upper and lower bout fade into a brilliant orange. The fingerboard is ebony, and the bridge is a finished rosewood. The top is made of German spruce. The neck is nicely quarter sawn cedar. The body is bound in rosewood. The finish is a beautiful, high gloss lacquer. The scale is 650 mm. An experienced classical guitar player tells me that the action is perfect, the tone is great, the volume is strong. The case is a hard shell thermoplastic case that has never traveled. I am unable to detect any scratches, dings, flaws of any kind in the guitar. It still looks like it did when I bought it. I also have a brochure of Vicente Carrillo guitars in 2003 that describes this model. Since the backs and sides (and a few other parts) of the guitar are made from Brazilian rosewood, I am unable to sell it to anyone outside of the US.
I bought this guitar in March, 2003; since 2003, periodically, I open the case of the V. Carrillo to be sure that the guitar is still in top shape, and then to play a scale and a few chords. That is, it has not been played a dozen hours in over 15 years. I am now retired, and it is obvious I am never going to learn to play this like new, wonderful guitar.

Vicente Carrillo
Vicente Carrillo is a 4th generation Spanish builder who builds fine flamenco and classical guitar in the Madrid style. He is particularly well-known for his flamenco guitars -- Paco de Lucia frequently played his guitars, but he has also won national and international awards for his classical guitars. This is a concert level classical guitar. Most of the top classical guitar shops in the states carry a few V. Carrillo guitars. This model was sold by high end US classical guitar outlets in the early 2000s. Today, V. Carrillo no longer offers a Brazilian rosewood model in his standard catalog, although he does offer a model that looks quite like this guitar, except that the back and sides are built with Madagascar rosewood. This is a unique opportunity to obtain a Brazilian rosewood classical guitar from a well-known Spanish maker, yet it is in the same condition as a new guitar.
