On his tour in april '97 Tomatito played
in Freiburg. Johannes Inhoffen invited him to visit his shop
'Mundo Flamenco'. There he picked a "Guitarra Blanca" out
of the rich lots of flamenco guitars in the shop, a long
neck model with cherry back and sides and a spruce top.
Tomatito liked the quality of tone and was
enthusiastic about the idea of having the edge of the body
at the 15. fret, making it very comfortable to play up to
the 20. fret. He tried it out on stage during the sound check
and then decided to buy it.
