1933 Domingo Esteso, Flamenco, Cypress-Spruce, Original Case

The Spanish luthier Domingo Esteso Lopez was one of the great guitar-makers of the early part of the 20th century that apprenticed with Manuel Ramirez. After Manuel Ramirez died, he opened his own shop on the calle Gravina, where he was joined by his 13 year old nephew Faustino Conde in 1926, as did Mariano Conde in 1929. After his death in 1937, Faustino and his two brothers, Mariano and Julio Conde continued working under the label Vda y Sobrinos de Domingo Esteso. Domingo Esteso guitars are considered monumental and historical, some of them are shown in the great Museums around the world telling the most important part of the history of the flamenco guitar.

 

This is a 1933 Domingo Esteso Flamenco guitar.  Domingo Esteso is considered the cornerstone of Flamenco Guitar history.  Despite being a modest guitar, this guitar tells a great history, and it's impressive sounding Flamenco character underlines its importance, combining a punchy attack to sweet warmth and passionate dynamics that only come from eighty years matured excellence.

 

Its current condition is remarkably good, the playability is excellent and it plays with with great ease. Holding this guitar for the first time, and noticing the impressive low weight of no more than 1.05kg (2.2Lbs) is a great experience. On the first stroke you immediately feel, hear and understand a great Flamenco Guitar maker had its hand in making this guitar.

 

The guitar is in very good to excellent condition. There is some wear to the original varnish finish, showing evidence of 80 years of playing, two almost invisible top cracks are expertly repaired long ago and one of the sides shows a superficial repaired crack. The guitar shows original finish and frets, original tuners are in excellent working condition. It features a spruce top, Cypress back and sides. The fingerboard seems to be made from (brazilian) rosewood. The nut width measures 50mm width at the nut, 650mm scale length.

 

A nice detail to the history of the guitar is that it comes with full history from the moment it was bought back in 1933 in Domingo Esteso's workshop by the first owner mr. Van Dijk and it stayed in the family for all these years. This guitar has the soul, dynamics and personality only found in the greatest matured Flamenco guitars. There seems to be a vague stamp/date on the heel that is faded over the years. This wonderful and likely unique guitar would be a great addition for any player and/or collector. It comes with the original case.
