A few soundclips recorded by a classical player not being able to get a flamenco player in a short notice are linked below the photos. Guitar is absolutely asleep being strung for just 1 hour. D’addario EXP46 strings.

    Frumoasa! Foarte frumoasa! Cred ca este cea mai frumoasa chitara construita pina acum de Alexandru Marian. Un omagiu lui Jose Romanillos, unul dintre cei mai cunoscuti lutieri de azi. Chitara are insertii care trimit la ornamentarile specifice lui Romanillos. Totul este creat manual și în stil tradițional. Numărul 33, un număr simbolic, numărul răstignirii.
