A beautiful, flamed maple cavaco by one of our favorite builders, the late Manoel Andrade. We believe this to be one of the last cavaquinhos he made before his death in 2013. Unlike many builders, Manoel did not date his cavacos, so our reporting of its age is based on what we were told by the previous owner and our familiarity with his instruments.
