The Spanish luthier Domingo Esteso Lopez was one the guitar great makers of the early 20th century to come out of the shop of Manuel Ramirez. After Manuel Ramirez died, he opened his own shop on the calle Gravina, where he was joined by his 13 year old nephew, Faustino Conde in 1926. After his death in 1937, Domingo's widow (Vda) took over the shop, and Faustino and his two brothers, Mariano and Julio continued working for her building under the label Vda y Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso (Widow and nephews of Domingo Esteso) which they signed Conde Hermanos. Overall, this guitar is in very good condition. There are a few expertly repaired cracks on the back and top, these repairs were done by Manuel Rodriguez (according to a second label) in Madrid in 1956. There are a few small scratches and dings, but nothing serious. The neck is straight, and has one of the nicest setups for flamenco I have ever seen-- about 2mm at the 12th fret. This guitar has the wonderful, dry flamenco rasp, and soul that made Conde Hermanos world famous. This rare guitar would be a great instrument for any player, and a wonderful addition to any collection.
