2014 Manuel Adalid Flamenco Concert Spruce Cypress

Comments:

This guitar is hand built by Manuel from his exclusive Alboraya shop.  It is designated as a Reyes Bench Copy.

A differentiation of Manuel’s Alboraya shop versus his Esteve Adalid manufacturing facility is in order.  I understand that there is much confusion.  Rightly so, as Manuel himself, must bear responsibility for this confusion.  Branding has been an issue for as long as I’ve represented Manuel, and probably earlier.  I’ve spoken with him about simplification of the overall branding.

Thus, in 2019, Manuel finalized plans to call all production level guitars, even those higher end Torres and Hauser guitars, under the “ESTEVE” label.

Manuel’s personal workshop is classified as “Adalid Alboraya” representative of his home and personal workshop.

So, All Esteve guitars, from Model 3 through Model 12, The older Adalid Model 1, the Hauser, Torres, Romantic (19th Century Model), are all under the ESTEVE label.

His Alboraya shop is responsible for all Bench Copies, such as this one, his Hauser Bench Copies, and his custom Catedral models.  OK, hope this helps.

This guitar was built in 2014.  It is signed by Manuel and is also stamped within on the underside of the soundboard.

The guitar is set up a bit higher than a typical flamenco guitar, giving your the ability to play all repertoire on the guitar.  She has a big beautiful sound.

Good choice as the guitar is super responsive, quick, with a beautiful round voice.

The price includes a Guardian Vintage Black HSC and Ground Shipping to the 50US

Media

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
