Flamenco guitar Vda. y Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso 1960 2ª

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, Pepe Habichuela… and much more. It is a guitar known as “segunda” regarding the kinds of wood used in its construction, which do not have the same quality as the “primera” guitars or concert guitars. Regardless of this, there were many professionals at that time who used this guitars given the closer sound, sometimes comparable to “primera” guitars but at a more reasonable price.

The woods selected are of a surprisingly high quality, curiously better than those used for the construction of many “primera” guitars. 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 of this flamenco guitar is really incredible, even for a “second class” guitar, it gives off a quality of sound and a volume superior to many of other first class guitars of the same firm that we have tried over these years. The basses are very powerful and bright but deep at the same time, the trebles are crystalline and clear, with great projection and sustain.

The tension of this flamenco guitar is medium. The height of the strings in the fingerboard and saddle is very balanced, providing us with a high level of comfort for both hands, as well as simplicity for the performance itself.

The condition of this flamenco guitar is excellent and completely original, without any kind of cracks or repairs whatsoever.
