Flamenco guitars are built with less internal bracing and with thinner tops than classical guitars, which produces a â€œbrighterâ€ and more percussive sound quality.
The Flamenco guitar was born in Andalusia, Spain in the early to middle 1800â€™s. Both the structural design and the unique playing techniques allowed this guitar to add to the flamenco and not be drowned out by the dancerâ€™s thundering feet.
