This flamenco guitar was made by the master luthier Domingo Esteso´s nephews in the emblematic workshop in 7 Gravina Street. This workshop was owned by Faustino and Mariano Conde. Lots of great performers have been in this workshop. For example, Paco de Lucía, Melchor de Marchena, Niño Ricardo, Cepero, Pepe Habichuela, and so many others.
This flamenco guitar is built with superior quality woods, impossible to obtain nowadays. The German spruce sound top has a perfect veining: straight, uniform and very marked over its entire surface, the back and sides are made of cypress wood, with an outstanding quality and beauty. The finishes are the typical ones of Hermanos Conde.
The sound emerging from this guitar possesses some special features and nuances, where the flamenco touch from this signature can be definitely found. The basses are very strong, with a very particular percussive sound. The trebles is just crystalline and well-defined and with an amazing scope, all of which makes quite a balanced set of features and a very accentuated flamenco sound, perfect both for a concert or for “cante” and “baile” accompaniment.
The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium, and the height of strings in saddle and fingerboard perfectly balanced, so it is quite a comfortable guitar for both hands.
The condition of the guitar is excellent, without any crack or repair whatsoever. The guitar has been repolished with natural varnish nitrocellulose in the same way as was done originally, keeping qualities and sound characteristics intact.
