Esteve Modelo 144, 1984, VG

Esteve Modelo 144, made in 1984. Esteve guitars are built in a workshop in the beautiful Mediterranean coastal farming town of Alboraya, Spain, near Valencia. The shop started in the 1950's by Francisco Esteve and Manuel Adalid Sr. Today it is a very busy workshop of about 40 artisans crafting high quality guitars by hand. The shop is still in the family tradition and is now managed by Manuel Adalid Jr. Over half a century of dedication to the highest standards of lutherie in the great Spanish tradition has distinguished the name of Esteve as one of the best in the world.

This Model 144 has not many hits on the internet, possibly because of the high end construction and higher original new price. It features solid Rosewood Back and Sides with a nice and solid dark cedar top, ebony fingerboard, and offers plenty of volume and a powerful attack whilst responding to the lightest touch. A great handbuilt instrument for an interesting price (see description of condition). Includes original (period correct) hardshell case which bears quite some signs of use.

Condition is very good, 7,1 out of 10, plenty of marks in the finish due to use, one large repaired crack in the side waist.. This crack has been repaired so it's stable, but the repair is not pretty hence the price. Sold as is.
