2002 Paulino Bernabe Concierto Spruce CSA


The guitar is in very good shape.  The rest of the guitar has nominal and honest playing wear on the top, sides and small area of the back.  Photos should illustrate.  They are all smallish and rather insignificant, including a small blemish on the top by the treble side lower bout.  A buffing of the back and sides brought the shine right out.  There is also an end pin for a strap in the butt of the guitar.  Apparently I missed this the first time I looked and cleaned the guitar, at least in my description.  My apologies for that.

The guitar emphasizes a large bass response, but not over-powering the mids or the trebles.   There’s a good amount of sing in this guitar, powerful and bold throughout her range.

Setup is quite good, tweaked by me, cleaned, polished, frets dressed and shined up, where the guitar plays fast and furious.  Obviously, all first class material used by the Spanish master.  She plays very easily with a low setup.

I have lowered the price to reflect all of the above.  Rich



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich

MP3 Audio – 210107-2002 Paulino Bernabe Concierto Spruce CSA  – very nice guitar, as you would expect.  Low action makes her play effortlessly.  Lot of fun playing a late Bernabe, as always.  She is mindful of an Antonio Marin Montero Spruce in that she is unyielding in her exactness of play, which is to be admired.
