This flamenco guitar has been made by the master luthier Felipe Conde, in his workshop, located in 4 Arrieta Street, 2019, after starting to work on his own, and not with his brother Mariano Conde, his guitars have got only his name, nobody else´s, leaving behind Hermanos Conde´s brand name and making a fresh start.
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.
The sound is incredible, Felipe Conde has succeeded in the creation of an exact copy of Maestro Paco de Lucia’s guitar. The difference in sound timbre, colour and quality are almost imposible to tell. This instrument has a mature sound, something that definitely evolved, with that “bouqué” the best flamenco guitars acquire along the years. It is extremely difficult to combine all those qualities in a new guitar. However, knowledge, as well as unbeatable talent, always break down barriers, and this is what happened one more time, yielding spotless results.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard is very reduced, providing us with a high degree of comfort for both hands.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is brand new. Despite having been made in 2019, it comes from a private collection whose owner did not use the instrument not even once. He only kept it as a collectible item.
