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.
Besides, this guitar has belonged to the great guitarist Miguel Rivera, who chose personally at the workshop that same year, and that has kept since using it in stages, recordings and in his private life since 1981.
This guitar is made of excellent woods, impossible to obtain nowadays. Straight-grained brazilian rosewood with breathtakingly beautiful shades, as well as German spruce top, also with a straight and even grain endorse the quality of this guitar with plenty of quality and character, typical of Hermanos Conde in that time. The guitar is made with the same combination of woods as the guitar Paco de Lucia employed for most of his career. We have even attached a picture of that guitar so all of you can compare and see for yourselves.
Unlike many of the guitars built in the 80s, this guitar is truly made by the hands of Faustino Conde. Due to the high demand of the firm at this time, many guitars were built in external workshops such as the one in Pozuelo. If we look at the construction details and the quality of the whole instrument, we can easily see that this is an instrument of a superior category with a sound, comfort and performance difficult to achieve for the majority of guitar makers.
This flamenco guitar has got medium tension, and a perfect height of strings in the saddle and fingerboard, providing the guitarist with a high degree of comfort for both hands, as well as an easy performance.
The condition of this flamenco guitar is really good and completely original. It only has two small fissures, one in the side and another one in the sound top, and a small break in the headstock, almost invisible and perfectly repaired and reported on the pictures attached.
