Conde Atocha, Media Luna cypress/spruce 2016

At one of my last trips around Madrid in October 2015, I passed by the Conde store of Julia, the daughter of Julio Conde (the last of the three brothers, who died in 1995). I thought to myself, why not take a look to see what they are doing today? Actually, I'm a fan of the old Condes from the 60s, 70s and 80s and there was one or the other Conde in the 90s that I liked very much. After 2000, I found the concept was no longer so attractive, because the sound had changed a lot and the prices had risen astronomically. However, since I had heard the Condes from Calle Atocha are still reasonably affordable, I wanted to test their guitars on site. What I then found there surprised me quite a bit. The selection was quite large, and I was surprised straight away by the good sound of the guitars. I have not seen any new Conde for years that has a sound so close to the old sound of the Faustino brothers. The deep, low-pitched bass especially fired my enthusiasm. The treble is adequate, not out of this world, but certainly in the style of the old icons.
It is also easy to play and within the range of the manageable with a 660 scale length.
I let myself be carried away and bought three instruments. I already sold two of them before I could put them on my website. From the second charge i received some months ago i have present you this nice cypress guitar with the typical bass and charm trebles we all know from the 80's condes. With the typical rosen rosette and the red color, it is exactly what conde fanboys are searching.
However I would not just buy anything there, because there are significant differences between the different guitars. Consequently, I will go there personally in the future to find the really top-rate ones and offer them to you.

The price/performance ratio is perfectly okay. If a new Conde is in the range of 8,000-10,000 euros, I prefer an original, authentic one. However, since you cannot get one for just under 5,000 euros, these Atocha Conde are a good alternative.
