This flamenco guitar has been made by the master luthier Felipe Conde, in his workshop, located in 4 Arrieta Street, 2022. Felipe Conde is currently the greatest representative of one of the most prestigious firms of Spanish guitar in history: Hermanos Conde. It is inevitable, just like when we talk about Hermanos Conde we all recall Paco de Lucía with his inseparable guitar from this firm, the same as Pepe Habichuela, Moraito Chico, Cepero, and an endless list of artists who captivated us with their music, born from pure genius and inspiration, where the instrument plays an essential role in the musician´s creative process. Well, this is precisely the secret of the firm. Hermanos Conde succeeded in instilling a very characteristic sound into their guitars. It was different from all the other ones, which the great musicians of that time loved, so the artist felt deeply linked to that sound when they composed and interpreted their music.
On Solera Flamenca we would like to present to our customers the new flamenco guitar model by luthier Felipe Conde: a model which accurately reproduces maestro Paco de Lucia´s guitar, which accompanied him for most of his career. With the same woods and template as the very original instrument, this guitar was made by the firm Hermanos Conde in 1975. This is an exact replica of Paco de Lucia´s favourite guitar. A guitar which, thanks to Felipe Conde´s hands, has been reproduced down to the smallest detail. (SEE NEWS)
The woods employed for this guitar is German spruce for the top and Pauferro for back and sides. The top has got a very marked, straight and even grain along its whole surface. The back and sides are made of Pauferro wood, with an outstanding quality and beauty. The original plantilla and solera used for the making of this guitar, along with the most accurate tools available at present, have resulted in an unbeatable guitar, capable of making us feel and remember the music of the “Maestro” artist on our own hands.
This guitar number 37 keeps its typical and unbeatable sound quality and timbre. However, we are nicely surprised by its sound: so large, wide, big, powerful… it definitely stands above any other guitar compared to this one. We must confess we have a soft spot for this guitar model in particular, as it is identical to maestro Paco de Lucia´s instrument. Besides, it has been made with woods of the 70s, of the very best quality, coming from Felipe Conde´s workshop.
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.
