This flamenco guitar was built in the landmark workshop Gravina Street No. 7 by the nephews of the master luthier Domingo Esteso, then run by brothers Faustino, Julio and Mariano Conde. Many were the figures who passed through this workshop suing their guitars as Paco de Lucia, Melchor de Marchena, Niño Ricardo, Cepero, Juan Habichuela… and much more.
This flamenco guitar belonged to the Parrillas family, from Jerez. To be specific, it belonged to Juan Parrilla, brother of Parrilla de Jerez and father of Manuel Parrilla. The top was replaced by an unknown luthier. However, we do suspect, by the details of its making, that it may have been carried out in the firm Ramírez. A really surprising guitar with a magical, magnificent sound. In fact, we have felt compelled to ignore our usual purchasing policy as regards the originality of the product. For instance, although its top was changed, it emits this unmistakable timbre of the very best guitars made by this firm from Madrid, which brings us back to the times of Morao, Parrilla, Paco, Melchor or Niño Ricardo. In short, it is a guitar with more than spectacular sound, incredibly flamenco, at the same level as the very best instruments we have ever had on our hands.
This guitar has the highly-valued “rebound beating” on the right hand, combined with fantastic softness on the left one, thus accomplishing the “perfect instrument”, should we want to spend hours and hours playing non-stop with a nice feeling of ease.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent. It just has two small fissures on the sound top practically indistinguishable and perfectly repaired and documented in the pictures attached.
