Fernandez. (it took me 40 hours to finish this guitar over 6 month.
This is the instrument shown toward the end of of our DVD Guitarmaking
with Benito Huipe. It has characteristics of both classical and
flamenco guitar. It has clear flamenco tap plates. It has a clear big
sound. Spruce face, really beautiful dense Palo Escrito back and
fingerboard. 53mm nut, 650mm scale with good Mexican case. $2700.

spacing at the saddle of the bridge is 60mm from 1st to 6th
string--this is 2 mm wider than the Estve guitars which are 58mm.
fingerboard, laminated rosewood back. Original price $1195 with case.
Antonio Aparicio Classical with narrow nut. Prototypes. This guitar was
made by Antonio Aparicio Jr. during time he spent in California a few
year ago. I commissioned a few guitars which he built and that I
personally French polished and did the fret work on. This guitar has a
650mm scale, 48mm nut. Solid wood soundboard, ebony fingerboard, solid
Indian Rosewood back and sides. Very good sound. I should mention
that Antonio Aparicio work in his family's guitar workshop in Spain for
over 30 years. His father retired and he moved to California for a few
years. His family made thousands of guitars for guitar shops in Madrid
and for guitar dealers around the world. They were the actual
factory/workshop which made guitars for other "Made in Spain" labels.

am no longer exporting any instruments from the United States. While
global shipping has greatly improved, other serious complications have
emerged such as credit card fraud, new customs difficulties, shipping
damage/liability. These problems make the risks too great.
I have mentioned in other places on my website, I am semi-retired and
therefore I am not longer selling to stores. However, I still have
stock of certain items. Some items are first quality, some have
cosmetic defects and I am therefore selling as seconds. I intend to
continue handling certain items such as charangos, some ukuleles, a
limited number of fine Spanish flamencos and classicals, refurnished
Portuguese guitars and some other ethnic instruments.
