Thanks, Kai. By fall, I may be looking for a nice flamenco guitar in the $1,500 to $2,000 range. I’d like something that has a nitro finish or French polish. I don’t like poly finishes at all.
I have an Alhambra 9p classical that is surprisingly good. But, I have never had an opportunity to play any of their flamenco guitars. So, I’m curious about them. Right now, I’m getting by with an old Alvarez Yairi that I fitted with a golpeadore. I actually like it a lot, but after playing a ‘68 Contreras (unfortunately outside my price range) at Rudy’s in NYC a couple of weeks ago I have the bug for a nice flamenco guitar.
