There are no pictures available for this acoustic guitar
This gorgeous Hermanos Conde dates 1993, and is the top model concert blanca made by the Gravina shop at the time. Although there are now three Conde shops, the Gravina shop is the original shop founded by their Uncle, Domingo Esteso (1882–1937), who was one the the great luthiers to come out of Manuel Ramirez workshop (1864-1916), who along with Santos Hernandez (1873-1943) set the standards for the modern flamenco guitar. It was the Gravina shop that built a guitar for Paco de Lucia that he made famous.
It is signed and has the famous half-moon profile on the headstock.
We flamenco guitarists are notoriously hard on guitars, so for a guitar this age it is in exceptional condition, and has been obviously well-cared for and loved.
There are some small dings on the top and sides and light nail marks along the upper and lower edges of the golpeador as expected after being played regularly for 17 years.
There is also a small spot of missing lacquer on the edge of the sound-hole (see photo). There is also an area of worn out lacquer where the edge of the guitar sits on the leg of the player. The set up on this guitar is ideal for flamenco, and there remains plenty of bone in the saddle should any adjustments ever be required.Hard shell professional case included.
