Conde Hermanos is one of the most famous names in the world of Flamenco guitar.
For sale is the 1965 Conde Hermanos guitar. This amazing instrument was purchased directly from Pepe de Lucia during his tour here who had it from Paco. It has had only one owner since.
This guitar is a step up from the other top end Conde’s that are on the market because they used the best woods and were intended to represent the pinnacle of guitar making in the Conde workshop.
The Conde Hermanos lineage dates back to Domingo Esteso who established a workshop in Madrid in 1915. He passed away in 1937 and his nephews and great nephews continued the tradition although they have recently parted ways.
This guitar has been played but is in excellent condition.
It features a fine grained Cedar top, Rosewood back and sides and an ebony fingerboard. It has a French polish finish. The attention to detail is extraordinary and the crafting of this guitar is meticulous. It comes in a hard case.
