The Conde family require little introduction in the world of Flamenco, being the most popular Flamenco luthier dynasty in Spain. The story of the dynasty started in 1915 with the famous luthier, Domingo Esteso. Esteso's nephews, the Conde brothers, active between 1940 and 1960, introduced small changes to the design, refining the tone and quality of the instruments and introducing the famous 'half-moon' head design.
The Conde tone proved irresistible to many professional artistes, and soon their list of clientele had expanded to include many famous names such as Regino Sainz de la Maza and the Venezuelan guitarist-composer Alirio Diaz.
From the 1960s, Nino Ricardo, Sabiacas, Paco de Lucia, Oscar Herrero, Tomatito and other household names had discovered Conde instruments, and their appeal expanded still further, to guitarists outside the realm of Flamenco; for example Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens and Leonard Cohen.
Felipe Conde continues the family tradition into the 21st Century, making a fine range of instruments, both Flamenco and Classical, maintaining contact with many loyal Conde customers, old and new. Originally apprenticed himself at the age of 14 to his father and uncle, he has now embarked on training his son and daughter to follow in his footsteps.

I just wanted to drop you a note of thanks. I really love the French 19th century guitar I purchased from you a few months back. It is always a little worrisome to do business across the ocean with someone you've never met, but in your case it was great.
