    Just arrived a very fine concert guitar by Paulino Bernabe made in 1983 and signed by him under the spruce front. A good vintage Bernabe guitar made before the more recent labelling of the Especial, Concierto, Royal, India models etc., it is a high level concert guitar with beautiful timbers and with clear, impressive sound and with no cracks or repairs, is a fine example of a performer’s guitar made when Paulino Bernabe was at the height of his powers.

    Mar 4 Posted by Miles Roberts in New Arrivals | There are no comments | Have your say
    Just in – an outstandingly successful replica of a 1929 Santos Hernandez made during January and February by Christopher Dean. What a honey!  In appearance, feel and sound, this is a remarkably good reproduction. All over the world we see copies of master-maker guitars but so rarely does the maker capture the feel, look and sound of the original to this extent. For full details, click here. Two if these remarkable replicas were sold immediately. Please enquire for next availablity.
