  • Comments:

    The many guitar models from the famous workshop of Paulino Bernabé are known the world over of course. The India model naturally has Indian rosewood back & sides and plain but elegant decoration. The sound is typical of the renowned Madrid makers - with clarity, a Spanish, well-balanced noble tone world, so suitable for much of the guitar repertoire.
