1986 Ignacio Fleta y Hijos ex Eliot Fisk
This particular Fleta was built for the great American virtuoso Eliot Fisk, who has been its sole owner for the entirety of its life. Eliot chose this guitar for its clarity,musicality, ease of playing and of course its power. Huge sound with a noble and compelling voice, this ranks among the very best Fletas of any vintage that I have handled.
My fondest memory of this particular guitar was of Eliot playing it in the hospital for his new baby girl Raquel some 12 years ago. I remember him saying as we all rushed off to the hospital, that it was only right that he bring this guitar with him. This guitar has been featured on a couple of his albums, signed copies of which will be included in the sale. Excellent, near mint condition with provenance like few others.
