Al di Meola playing a Scharpach bespoke flamenco guitar, live at Berklee

Al di Meola playing a Scharpach custom made flamenco guitar

The great Al di Meola can be seen here playing “La Porta”, a flamenco guitar that I custom built for him. This is live at Berklee Valencia Campus. What a great performance!

Some background to the design of this guitar:

“La Porta” is a guitar specially made for Al di Meola. The design is based on a story which Al told about his grandfather leaving Italy through an ancient door, hence: “La Porta”. The design of the headstock was taken from and inspired by the design of the ancient stone-decorated wooden door through which his grandfather departed.
