PLEASE NOTE ALTHOUGH THIS GUITAR IS PRICED IN US DOLLARS IT IS IN THE UKRAINE.

The Spanish luthier Paulino Bernabé Sr. was born in 1932. Like many well-known luthiers, Bernabe started out as a cabinet maker.  In 1954, his love of the guitar drew him to apprentice with José Ramirez. During the years that Andres Segovia started playing Ramirez guitars, Paulino was head artisan and foreman of the Jose Ramirez workshop. Ramirez guitars of the 1960s bearing PB initials are highly sought after by collectors. In 1969, he left the Ramirez  to set up his own workshop in Madrid. He was a not only a very fine craftsman, but an experimenter who has developed his own strutting system and construction methods. Paulino Bernabe Sr, died in May of 2007, and has been followed by son, Paulino Jr. This guitar was made by the father in 2005, and at the time was the top model he made. The seller notes that this guitar from his private collection, and that he ordered it directly from Paulino Bernabe Sr, and took delivery in workshop in Madrid. Although there are a couple of minor scratches in the finish that could easily fixed with a bit of French polish, this guitar is essentially almost like new, and has been played more than 20-30 hours. It comes with a quality hardcase.
