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 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
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:

I reset the comment format to accept comments from the public. I make guitars professionally with an emphasis on flamenco and classical guitars.
This is an example of one of my rosettes. It's a white moth design on a black background. You can hear this guitar by looking at the videos in the YouTube window on the right hand side of the blog. It's is being played by Don Soledad.
I hope you look through my blog and leave messages and feedback about my guitars. Please inquire via email about prices, I'm happy to talk publicly about my designs and building philosophy.
A full price list with standard options will be published soon.
