Stephen Faulk Blanca Flamenco guitars-special promotional price

Many people have been responding to my email with questions about guitars, but at this time can't make a commitment at the price range on my web site which is 4600.00. I've decided to make a limited run of blancas and offer them at a reduced price to promote my instruments. They will be made with Port Orford Cedar I have been saving for ten years. I have built three very nice guitars with this wood.

Not an imitation of some famous builders guitar; an original hand made guitar by a maker who understands flamenco guitars with a track record for making tasty

The price is $3300.00

The offer stands until all five sets of Port Orford Cedar are spoken for.

The details:
The rosette will be simple, but elegant. Concentric circles lines with one small tile element, my modern versions of the rosettes on Esteso, Santos and Manuel Ramirez blancas.
My new head stock design
Twelve hole bridge
Binding on the back plain, binding and purfling on the face.


1. Spruce or Cedar top
2. Pegheds mechanical Pegs or Gotoh
3. Soundport

Terms: $400.00 deposit to reserve a place on this special list. The first person in line will receive their guitar in August. You can return the guitar in five days in perfect condition for a deposit refund. Buyer must pay shipping both ways.

Shipped with exterior box in a light weight foam nylon travel case. Buyer pays for shipping. I can provide the package weight and dimensions ahead of time to calculate shipping price.

An example of this type of Port Orford Cedar blanca guitar can be seen in this video:


  1. Hi Stephen,

    I'm confused, is the back or top made of Port Oxford Cedar? Also, do I have the option of swapping the rosette you decided for this guitar with the same moth motif you used on Don Soledad's guitar?

  2. The top will be either Spruce or Western Red Cedar, different from Port Orford Cedar.

    I have one more set of rosette tiles for the white moth ready now, so I can give that rosette to you if you like.

  3. Who are you? You can write to me via email if you don't want to say in public. Thanks.


  4. Stephen - I could not be more excited about this offer! Looking forward to discussing my guitar with you in the coming months.

    Cheers from Halifax,
