2007 Geronimo Mateos

Geronimo Mateos has long been one of the leading Selmer Maccaferri style luthiers in Spain. Based in Madrid, his guitars are played worldwide by such notably luminaries as Angelo Debarre, Tchavolo Schmitt, and Gonzalo Bergara. Angelo Debarre played a Mateos guitar on the CDs "Come Into My Swing," "Entre Amis," and "Memoires," (Tchavolo Schmitt plays one as well on "Memoires") and Gonzalo Bergara played a Mateos built guitar on the CD Porteņa Soledad. Some of his earlier instruments were rebranded as "Gallato" but were built in the same shop as this Mateos instrument.

This wonderfully preserved example features a spruce top, highly figured santos rosewood back and sides, and a walnut neck. It is equipped with a fine set of Gotoh tuners, a DR tailpiece, and a bigtone pickup (a $400 value!) This instrument posses the traditional sound that Mateos is known for: a dry, crisp, and well balanced tone that projects easily with little effort.

This guitar is in excellent condition, with only a few small dings on the top and binding and some very light pickwear. The frets have some slight wear but have many years of life left.

A European handmade instrument of this quality is rarely found for less than $4000 making this instrument an exceptional deal. The fact that the instrument is equipped with a bigtone pickup only sweetens the deal. If you're looking for great Gypsy tone for less, this is it!

This is the CASH price...add 3% (4% for International orders) if you'd like to pay with a credit card.
