Up for consideration is a used Milagro El Gallo flamenco guitar in mint condition, with a hardshell case. This guitar is the premium version Milagro Flamenco guitar, w/all-solid spruce and Spanish cypress tonewoods, and ebony fingerboard. This barely-used, mint-condition Milagro sounds fantastic, and represents a tremendous discount to luthier-made flamenco guitars costing several times as much. The guitar excells in flamenco playing, but is also versatile enough to sound excellent in classical, folk, pop/rock, and jazz styles, making it a perfect instrument for players who delve into a number of different styles, and want to have the flamenco sound covered. New, the El Gallo guitar sells for $1,799, and here is a rare chance to get a barely-used on in like-new condition, and save 500!!!

Milagro is a guitar company founded by Madrid-based luthier / designer
/ guitarist Neris Gonzalez, with production based in
the highest-quality Artisian Workshop in China. The result is a great
custom guitar design with highest-quality all-solid tonewoods and workmanship, at a very
affordable price (Click here for my Cathedral
Guitar Interview with Neris). Click HERE for additional Milagro/Bartolex/Cathedral guitar reviews.
The sound, both acoustically and recorded, is superb. I personally
am endorsing Milagro guitars and am selling them on
eBay and through my Bartolex
USA website because I have already played hundreds of gigs on my own
Milagro / Cathedral / Bartolex multi-string guitars (all designed by Neris Gonzalez), and I'm continually amazed at
how good these guitars are.
MILAGRO / BARTOLEX
Milagro, Bartolex, and Cathedral Guitars are designed by Neris Gonzalez, who also supervises production at the very best western-trained luthier workshop in China. Milagro is the all-solid, top-of-the-line model, with premium woods and the best possible materials and workmanship, but still at an affordable price. Bartolex is the mid-line models, with solid spruce or cedar tops, and laminated Indian Rosewood back & sides. Cathedral Guitars is the entry-level line, with solid cedar tops and Mahogany back and sides.

"The guitar is is very well built and is simply beautiful -- I love how it looks and how it feels. The thickness of the neck is perfect and feels very comfortable. Overall, I am very pleased with the guitar.
And I must say I feel VERY thankful for people like you for making the dream of owning a multi-stringed guitar a reality. I never have thought I'd own two 10-string guitars and an 11-string alto guitar that sound and play great, without having to take out a second mortgage!!!
