1999 Conde Hermanos "Concert Blanca" SP/CY
|Back & Sides:
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.

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.
From the most sought-after flamenco shop in Spain, this is a fantastic late 90's Conde concert blanca in great condition. The instrument has a strong attack and aggressive edge that is matched with a beautiful, big tone. It is a great guitar for a player with strong, fast hands looking for an instrument to match his technical prowess. It is in great shape for its age, with only mild playing wear. All in all, this is a great workhorse guitar for the most demanding of gigging flamenco players.
