Flaco inspired this Signature model just as he's inspired countless accordion players.
This Corona II Flaco Jimenez Signature Accordion celebrates the lifetime achievement and legacy of accordion legend Flaco Jimenez. Five-time Grammy Award winning Flaco Jimenez has played Hohner accordions on more than 100 albums over the span of five decades. Hohner wishes to honor this special relationship and inspire players all over the world with this signature accordion dedicated to Flaco's rich musical heritage.
Hohner and Flaco Jimenez worked side by side in collaboration to develop this new accordion, which has been specially tuned to produce Flaco's unique signature sound. It includes an updated bass strap, pearloid black buttons, noise reduction fingerboard, deluxe carrying case, and is available in a unique gold finish complete with Flaco's signature.
It has been said that what B.B. King is to the blues or George Jones is to traditional country, Grammy-winning accordionist Flaco Jimenez is to the world of Tex-Mex Conjunto. While there are many masters of the accordion along the Texas-Mexican border, none but Flaco have toured the world and recorded with major pop, rock and country artists. By all accounts, he is an international icon for the accordion-fueled Conjunto genre. The Hohner accordion has been Flaco's signature sound and has been a part of his family's tradition—including his grandfather Patricio Jimenez, and his legendary father Don Santiago Jimenez Sr.
Flaco's Conjunto style is derived from many cultural backgrounds, spanning from its Tex-Mex roots to honky-tonk country, rock'n'roll, and Tejano. His unique accordion playing has earned him five Grammy Awards, and he continues to inspire accordionists around the world.
