wow … this is an impressive guitar from Condes best time. It has the characteristics of construction that made Conde Hermanos so famous combined with the headstock and some optical aspects from the good old time of Domingo Esteso.
This guitar, made by Julio Conde at Atoche 53 is a real gem. After playing this guitar it is easy to understand why they were, and still are, in such demand. Its the effortless power, open and transparent clarity, and bold character of sound that stands out and is so compelling, and, if you push it, there does not seem to be a bottom to the sound – it does not compress.
