Domingo Esteso, Madrid, 1933. Domingo Esteso Lopez, born in San Clemente in the province of Cuenca in 1882, was one the most famous and respected classical and flamenco guitar makers of the early 20th century. In the 1890s, he began as an apprentice in the shop of Manuel Ramirez in Madrid, working along side such great Spanish luthiers as Santos Hernandez and Modesto Borreguero. When Manuel Ramirez died in 1916, he continued to work for Manuel's widow for about a year. In 1917 he opened his own shop on the calle Gravina, where he was joined by his nephew, Faustino Conde in 1926. After his death in 1937, Faustino and his two brothers, Mariano and Julio, took over the shop, building under Vda y Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso (Widow and nephews of Domingo Esteso. Following the widow's death in the 1960s, they became Hermanos Conde, sobrinos (nephews) of Domingo Esteso. This concert classical guitar made in his shop on Gravina has a German spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides. The scale is 650mm with a 52mm nut. It was restored in 2000 by Pedro Maldonado.
