Esteve Model 11 Cedar EIRW

Comments

The Adalid 11 is a full bodied Spanish Guitar, all solid wood with the result being a rounder, louder and richer tone with more projection.

The Western Red Cedar is remarkably beautiful, while the East Indian Rosewood is equally so for the back and sides, all solid. The fingerboard is ebony.   The action is set up moderately low.

I like this guitar because of its overall quality and price.   It is difficult to find a true Spanish build, but of course Manuel Adalid can be considered the epitome of such luthiers, building for many of the other Spanish houses.  The name Adalid as well as Esteve, both owned by Manuel and his partners,  are considered among the penultimate Spanish name in classical and flamenco style guitars in the Valencia region of Spain.

This is a great guitar in every way.  A price point of under $2.5K makes this an amazing value.  I will usually have a Cedar variation available to my clientele.  See photos in the gallery.  Please note that I do not carry the Spruce version any longer.

The price includes a Black Humicase Protege and our standard Accessory Package

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

Please NOTE that photos of all “production guitars” are stock photos, taken randomly for our numerous selection of guitars, whether they be from Kenny Hill – Esteve – Adalid or others.  It is virtually impossible and arduous to photograph each of our available production guitars.  I am, however, happy to take a few photos for you of any particular guitar with which your are interested.

Handcrafted instruments are photographed and listed individually, usually identified by a serial number, date and or some other combination.
