Such a guitar does not come every day! This is a Conde Flamenca Blanca with a great sound and in a great condition. It was built in the best time of the Conde brothers (Faustino, Mariano and Julio Conde) and is a fine piece of exceptional craftsmanship.
I have to say, I’m excited. An absolute masterpiece is this guitar! You can directly se that someone has worked with passion, expertise and absolute attention to detail to create this beautiful guitar.
What a great sound. The woods are fabulously dried and they have an incredibly deep vintage sound. Simply inimitable. Penetrating basses, strong mids and clear / fine highs.
The instrument is feather-light and vibrates so that you can feel the sound all over your body. Such a room-filling, powerful and yet charming sound, you can rarely experience on a guitar!
Behind the name “Conde Hermanos” are the three brothers Mariano, Faustino and Julio Conde, who continued in the early 1950s Esteso guitars for the widow of Domingo Esteso until the brothers eventually sold their guitars under their own name “Conde Hermanos”.
They became famous by Paco de Lucia, who played exclusively Conde guitars from the 1970s on. Due to this more and more flamenco guitarist played and play Conde worldwide.
This guitar was built in 1974 and has a spruce top. The back and sides are made of fine cypress wood. The guitar has small repair on the back and some scratches on the top. It is otherwise in a great and original condition.
The neck is straight. The guitar has a great action and plays with ease. From the aspect playability it is a dream!
