2003 Conde Hermanos "A 26" 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. This instrument is their concert-level blanca. It is beautiful not only to the eye, but to the ear as well. It is durable for the heavy hand, fast and fun to play. Although used, it is in excellent condition, with only some very minor playing wear in the finish. A great value from the maker of Paco de Lucia's guitar!
