Flamenco guitar Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso 1972

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.

The different woods in this flamenco guitar are of the top existing quality. The top are made of german spruce has a totally straight and even grain, which is quite accentuated. The back and sides are made of cypress wood, whose beauty and quality are simply magnificent.

This flamenco guitar has that special timbre and character, typical of the best guitars of this firm from Madrid, with this capacity of captivating all of us. These guitars definitely have something special, as they made a whole generation of guitarists agree: Paco de Lucia, Niño Ricardo, the Parrillas, Morao, Melchor… and a long etc. When we hear the sound of this instrument, we immediately realize we are before something “different”, truly special. A sound with deep echoes, perfect balance and accurate clarity. It is no doubt one of the very best guitars of this firm we have ever held in our hands.

The tension of the guitar is medium, and the height of the strings in saddle and fingerboard perfect, really balanced, which grants the performer a high degree of comfort for both hands.

The condition is excellent, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever. As regards its condition, we have only gone through the shellac on the top, without affecting the original thickness of the wood in any way, in order to preserve its acoustic qualities unaltered.
