The Reyes Story

Why Reyes?

Hailing from Córdoba, Spain, Manuel Reyes was widely considered the most prominent and influential flamenco guitar builder in recent history; he passed away in November 2014. Reyes’ creations are played by many top professional players, most notably Vicente Amigo, who has immortalized the Reyes sound on his best-selling albums. Reyes is credited with crafting THE Spanish sound, and the Córdoba Reyes carries on the tradition.

Cordoba’s Approach

Córdoba embarked on designing the Córdoba Reyes by examining an authentic 1960s Reyes from the inside out. With a goal of understanding the essence of this iconic guitar, Córdoba studied wood thickness, bracing designs, material choices, wood grains, and vibration patterns. The combination of Córdoba’s own luthiers’ expert hands, trained eyes, and intuitive ears lead to an examination that was part science and part feel. After listening to and playing these guitars for hours on end, Córdoba fully analyzed the balance, resonance and response of the Reyes to fully inform their own design choices.

Construction

Like the majority of flamenco “blancas,” the Reyes is built with a solid Engelmann spruce top and solid cypress back and sides. Flamenco guitars like the Reyes have a lower action than classical guitars, creating a slight amount of “sizzle” to each note. Because of the lack of relief on the Spanish cedar neck, the frets buzz slightly, giving the Córdoba Reyes a snare drum-like pop. From picados to rasgueados, the Reyes is truly in its element when put under the test of any flamenco technique and never fails to deliver the classic flamenco sound. When played gently, it sings sweetly with a beautiful melodic voice, yet when driven hard, the biting, aggressive side is released. Córdoba’s small team of skilled luthiers has added modern refinements such as a truss rod, geared tuning machines and a breathable nitrocellulose finish to make this a guitar for contemporary players. A hardshell humidified archtop case is included.
