The inspiration for this guitar was Enrique Sanfeliu, a flamenco guitar maker from the 1920s. Michael has taken the basic shape of the Sanfeliu and built this wonderful modern Granada style guitar round it.

The guitar has 9 fan braces and has a power and projection that belies it's seemingly small stature.

The video below was produced and performed by renowned Scottish guitarist Matthew McAllister in February 2013 and features a similar model of this Michel Ritchie guitar from 2010.
