The Hermanos Sanchis Lopez, David and German, are the forth generation of luthiers in the Sanchis family in Valencia. Their great grandfather, Ricardo Sanchis Nacher (1881-1960) founded the firm in 1915, and had a close relationship with Domingo Esteso among others. His sons, Ricardo Sanchis Badia (1911-1938) and Vicente Sanchis Badia (1923-2001) were trained by their father. Ricardo Sanchis Badia, died young, and his son, Ricardo Sanchis Carpio (b. 1937) was trained by his grandfather and uncle. Ricardo Sanchis son's are now running the shop, although their father continues to build a highend line of guitars under his own name. I have visited this small-factory, but shop might be a more accurate discription since rather than high-tech assembly they continue to use traditional building techniques, doing most operations by hand. 

This guitar is their 1F flamenco, and is a professional level guitar. The guitar is in near mint condition. According to its owner, other than a very shallow ding on the back of the neck at the 9th fret, this guitar is absolutely clean: no other dings, scratches, or cracks. He notes "this guitar has lots of volume, and lots of snarl. It's a fine player. I would never sell it, but I also have a Ricardo Sanchis Caprio, and I am nearing 80 years old."
