This flamenco guitar is built by the prestigious firm Conde Hermanos from Madrid, in 2006, the period of the best splendor after the death of Faustino and Mariano Conde late 80s early 90. After working together for years on the street Gravina 7, Mariano Conde decided to leave his brother Faustino and open, with her children Felipe and Mariano Conde, his own workshop in the street Felipe V in Madrid. They have run the workshop until 2010 maintaining the building line and tradition that his father and uncle were transmitted.
This guitar has been part of the maestro Manuel Parrilla personal collection. He has used it in stages, recordings and in his private life.
The woods in this flamenco guitar are simply perfect. The top is made of German spruce, with an amazing grain: completely straight and uniform. The back and sides are made of an extraordinary cypress. The finishes are the typical in Conde Hermanos work: simple and elegant.
The sound of this flamenco guitar is astonishing, despite being new. In fact, the sound is really mature, which can mostly be found in older, high-quality guitars. The basses are bright, powerful, very strumming; the trebles are vivid, with spectacular brightness and volume.
The tension is medium, very comfortable for both hands, due to the reduced height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard.
Its condition is very good and completely original, only has a tiny fisure in the back practically indistinguishable, perfectly repaired and documented in the attached images.
