The 1970’s was a very important decade for the history of Flamenco and our workshop as well. Following the footsteps of Niño Ricardo, Melchor de Marchena, Manolo de Huelva, Esteban Sanlúcar… the new generation of flamenco artists that will revolutionize flamenco in the decades to come, make our workshop their second home and take our guitars to heights never imagined at the time. Coincidentally it was in 1971 when Felipe Conde starts his apprenticeship at his father and uncle’s workshop located at 7 Gravina Street when he was only 14 years old. The Gravina workshop becomes a melting pot of artists forging a new flamenco sound along with the luthiers that will mark a whole generation of guitarists. At this time a rosewood guitar especially built for flamenco consolidates as the mythical Conde Hermanos negra breathing fresh new air into the art of flamenco.
As homage to this time of prolific creativity and strong friendships forged with artists that changed flamenco, Felipe decides to build this emblematic guitar so representative of the golden age of our workshop. The guitar is an exact replica of a 1975 model built for Paco de Lucía.
