This flamenco guitar has been made by the master luthier Felipe Conde Crespo, 2023, son of Felipe Conde and heir of one of the most important firms in guitar history: Hermanos Conde. This young luthier has proved he is talented enough, to say the least, for guitar making. His intruments have a careful and down-to-detail making, with a sound of the highest quality, keeping their timbre and strength typical of this firm, but also instilling his distinctive personality. There is no doubt Felipe Conde Crespo gathers all qualities necessary in order to be one the best guitar makers in Spain, and the perfect heir for the firm he represents. Those qualities are devotion and love for his work, music and the guitar.
This guitar is made with high quality and beautiful woods. Sequoia has certain acoustic characteristics that make it one of the best woods to use for flamenco guitars, due to the shape and distribution of its grain and the crystallisation of its interior fibres and resins, which achieve a timbre that resembles the speed and clarity of cedar’s but with the sweetness and bass closer to spruce-pine’s. The back and sides have been made with cypress wood of outstanding quality, having a very beautiful cut with an optimal seasoning process.
The sound emitted by this flamenco guitar is truly astonishing, as it possesses a responsiveness and power that make it unique in its class. The bass strings have a very percussive and direct low end with a prominent brightness that turns strumming into a real delight to resort to. The treble strings are direct and penetrating, with a volume and power perfectly balanced with the bass strings.
The tension of the guitar is medium, and the height of the strings in saddle and fingerboard perfect, really balanced, which grants the performer a high degree of comfort for both hands.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is brand new.
