Buying a Vicente Sanchis Badia 15F 

Hello, I'm ready to buy a Vicente Sanchis Badia 15F just for my 2nd guitar for my classes. Anybody has an experience from these guitars? I have read some posts for Badia but i want to be sure before buying. This specific model has a nice crispy sound and its affordable.

Thank you for advance.

This is my Vicenti Sanchez

I'm not a very good player I'm afraid. I've decided to become my own accompanist for singing though.

Anyway it feels much lighter than a standard classical guitar. The action is medium--sometimes I struggle to play the picado fast enough for the beat. I do this anyway, but the strings are not taut and easier to play fast on. I'm not sure what is the best height to string a flamenco guitar.

The guitar has a lovely cypress smell to it and it produces a really nice tone, not too sonorous but not too bright

whoa whoa whoa, wait a minute. You want to be your own accompanist for your flamenco cante???? You don't know the name of palos you are trying to play even yet. And you don't have a feeling for compas yet either. I think you should seriously reconsider learning to sing any flamenco. Maybe you should learn how to do palmas first.

The palos is sequiriyas, right? I've been drilling myself on compas since I posted that, the plan is to put one up in a week that blows that mediocre performance out of the water.
But I need to be able to accompany myself with just general singing. I sing mainly opera, but piano has never worked for me. The most exciting rhythms come from the guitar and of those, the most interesting are the right handed flamenco strumming patterns.
I know I'm not capable of accompanying myself during flamenco cante--I don't even sing that style yet. I'm just interested in how you learn to sing that stuff if you live on the outskirts of nowhere.
