Description

This Blanca is a perfect example of why the majority of working professional Flamenco guitarists the world over choose Conde guitars. It has a clean, raspy sound with great edge and bite, making it a very lively instrument for solo performance or for accompanying dancers and singers. Workmanship is the usual very high standard for this maker, very clean, precise and with a refined aesthetic, not just in the beautiful rosette but also by the instantly recognizable "media luna" headstock shape, which has become the symbol of the Conde name for over half a century. This particular guitar was ordered with the machined, but old-school-looking "Planetary Pegs" which work just like regular machines with no slip.

Background
Conde Hermanos guitars have been the industry standard for Spanish flamencos for many decades now. Conde has been the guitar of choice for the vast number of great players for many generations from Nino Ricardo and Melchor de Marchena to Paco de Lucia (who has recorded and concertized for nearly his entire career on Conde), Moraito, Gerardo Nunez, Canizares, Rafael Riqueni and the present generation's Diego del Morao and many others. Click here to see a small sampling of such performances. They are famously known for a dry, "woody" and very firm tone, capable of retaining clarity and punch even when driven to the extreme limits of speed - whether in picado, tremolo or rasguedo techniques - these guitars can hold up and deliver a reliable and consistent quality of tone. Felipe Conde has been building these guitars for almost 40 years - first with his father and uncle and later with his brother. Now Felipe has established his his own workshop, and GSI is proud to be the exclusive US dealer for his guitars.
