The Spanish luthier Domingo Esteso Lopez was one the guitar great makers of the early 20th century to come out ofthe 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 until her death in the 1960s, when they began using their own label Hermanos Conde, sobrinos (nephews) of Domingo Esteso. This guitar made by the Conde Hermanos in Gravina Shop in 1945. Over all this guitar is in excellent condition. No fret wear.  An older Spanish restoration has been recently updated by the luthier Gustavo Vasquez Rubio who repaired various cracks, and refreshed its French polished top, replaced the golpeador, and went through the set-up. This guitar has the wonderful, flamenco soul that made Conde Hermanos world famous, and the choice of many flamenco players. This rare guitar would be a great instrument for any player, and a wonderful addition to any collection.
