Antonio Aparicio AA40F 

What do you think about Antonio Aparicio AA40F guitar as an entry level for flamenco compared with other luthiers like the studio model from Conde Hermanos, because I am waiting to arrive and I would like the opinion of somebody who has come across with this type of instrument before, thanks in advances and Saludos Cordiales!!!

Hi, I have one of these, which I used before I got my Bernal. I can only speak for this one as I haven't played any others. I think it's a perfectly playable student guitar. My only criticism might be that it tends to be a bit bass-heavy - bass sound is unbalanced with the trebles. I'd say that might be my playing, but that's not a problem I have with my Bernal.

But as I say, that might just be mine.

Well, in my opinion you won't get a satisfying sound in that price range anyway.
I played this model for 20 months before I bought a Sanchis guitar and I think it
Is a good guitar compared to the other models I tried out at that time.

What I liked about it is that the Aparicio has a very good playability.
Have you already ordered a guitar? I still have mine and could sell it.

Maybe there is one, but I don't know of any Conde Studio model in the same price range as the Aparicio AA40F. I would recommend that you also check out a Cordoba 45FM, which is slightly more than the AA40F, or an Alhambra 3F, which is slightly less, but both are in the same general price range, and all three are constructed of similar materials – solid spruce top, laminated sycamore back and sides, etc., so it makes for a good comparison before you commit to anything. Any of the three would be a perfectly suitable entry level flamenco guitar to get started with.

Ramon
