Felipe Conde, Luthier, Flamenco Guitars

Lecture
The history of the Conde Guitarshop

Felipe Conde will discuss the history of the Conde guitar constructors and the trajectory and development of the flamenco guitar construction tied to the Conde family. He will make an overview of the Esteso-Conde guitar construction tradition and the development of the flamenco guitar, the Conde sound and methods of construction devised throughout different epochs.

 

BIO
The Conde workshop can rely on a great history in guitar making that goes back to Domingo Esteso in 1915, who was on his turn an important apprentice of Manuel Ramirez. Felipe Conde entered the workshop as an apprentice in 1971 when he was only 14 years old. Together with his father and uncle he embarked on his apprenticeship later combining it with his university studies. 

During these years he began to have a close contact with guitarists such as: Niño Ricardo, Regino Sainza de la Maza, Sabicas, Mario Escudero, Melchor de Marchena, Paco de Lucía and many others. 

His aim is always to maintain alive the relationship between the constructor and the guitarist. This constant dialogue is the key to the way he constructs guitars and improves the instrument and takes it where the artist wants it to go. His profession is a passion and a way of life. 

Since 2010, in the midst of his personal and professional maturity, he embarked on a new era together with his daughter and son with great energy and excitement and begins this new journey with great experience and love for the tradition.
