The Áurea guitar is Manuel Bellido’s final work. This instrument comes from 1982, when Manuel saw a draw of the so-called golden number, and made a guitar based on it. The project ended in 2018, working with the Department of Mathematics of the University of Granada, that created a perfect calculation of every part of the guitar, based on the Phi number, and then built ny Manuel. Assembled in Ignacio Fleta style, its scale can be 650 mm, 644 mm or 640 mm. The woods are German spruce for the top, and Indian or Brazilian rosewood for the back and sides.
The Áurea is an extremely comfortable guitar and at the same time has an extraordinary volume, balance and nuances. It has powerful bass and bright highs with an extra long sustain. An ideal instrument for concerts or for those aficionados who want to have a unique musical instrument.
