About the Conde family:
Domingo Esteso founded the Conde dynasty in Madrid in 1915. When Esteso died in 1937, his nephews Mariano Conde Sr., Faustino Conde and Julio Conde who were trained by their uncle continued working for their aunt under the name of “Viuda y Sobrinos de Esteso” until 1960. Julio Conde already opened his own workshop in “Calle Atocha 53” in the early 1950’s. Mariano Conde Sr. and Faustino Conde took over Esteso’s workshop from 1960 until 1988/1989 and changed their brand name to “Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso Conde Hermanos” or “Hermanos Conde Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso”. Later Mariano Sr. established his own workshop at Calle Felipe V, 2 in Madrid and his two sons Felipe (born 1957) and Mariano Jr. (born 1959) began their apprenticeship at the age of 15.
This flamenco guitar was built in 2006 and has a very fine spruce top. It has a “Media Luna” headstock and one of the exclusive traditional rosette designs. The guitar is made from highest quality tone-woods that have matured for several decades. The tuning machines are made by Fustero. A hardshell case is included.
