Availability: Out of Stock

A rare and highly desirable flamenco guitar from the former, legendary Esteso workshop which was located in the Gravina street No. 7, in the heart of Madrid, Spain. She was built by the 3 well-known brothers Faustino, Julio and Mariano Conde, disciples and nephews (‘Sobrinos' in Spanish) of one of the greatest guitar makers in the history of the Spanish guitar, Domingo Esteso. Made with woods of supreme, today almost unobtainable, quality. This lightweight Esteso projects a loud, dry, vibrant, rich, crispy and well-balanced flamenco sound. Over the years, spruce gets better, moves to the charm that cedar has at an early age; but a spruce top of over 60 years adds so much more colors, depth and brightness that she is a pure joy to play. Condition is excellent and completely original, without any cracks or repairs and a superb playability. An ideal choice for the serious flamenco guitarist looking for an authentic flamenco guitar with that old world sound, with the magic of a very, very old spruce top.

Domingo Esteso (1882-1937), born in San Clemente in the province of Cuenca in 1882, is one of the major references and greatest guitar makers in the history of the Spanish guitar. He starts as an apprentice in the workshop of Manuel Ramírez together with Santos Hernandez, Modesto Borreguero and Enrique Garcia. When Manuel Ramirez dies in 1916, he continues to wor for the widow of Manuel for about a year. In 1917 Domingo Esteso opens his own workshop in the Gravina street No. 7, in the heart of Madrid where, joined by his nephews as apprentices, Faustino Conde in 1926 and Mariano Conde in 1929. After the Spanish civil war and the death of Domingo Esteso in 1937, the 2 brothers Faustino and Mariano Conde make guitars with the label ‘Viuda y Sobrinos de Esteso’ (Widow and nephews of Esteso) out of respect for their aunt, Nicolasa Salamanca. When she passes away in 1958 the label changes to “Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso” (Esteso’s nephews). At this time Faustino and Mariano’s younger brother Julio Conde enters the workshop as an apprentice.


Since the 60s the guitars of the 3 Conde brothers are the most desired instruments of famous artists such as Niño Ricardo, Sabicas, Melchor de Marchena, Mario Escudero, Paco de Lucía, Paco Cepero, Enrique de Melchor, Habichuela, Oscar Herrero, Gerardo Núñez, Rafael Riqueni, Tomatito, Al di Meola, John McLaughlin, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Leonard Cohen and many others.
