Arash, I never said the newer Condes are bad. Please reread the initial post, I simply said the 1990 was very different than the newer ones and were not made by the same people for sure....

Yes. NOTHING compared to this 1990 one. It was typical Conde with thin trebles and strong basses.

The 1990 has thick, "meaty" trebles, hard to find in newer Condes. Whoever owns old negras might jump in and confirm whether they agree or not!

I'd love to try this guitar, although could never pay that kind of money for it. The 664/53 fretboard dimensions scare me a little, too. I don't have Paco hands.

It is funny you say that. When I played it, I had no idea about the measures, when I came back home and saw the measures on the ad, I started laughing....

All my other guitars are 650 or 655 and did not feel any different than this one. It responded so well that the measures were non issue. It played like butter....

RE: Old Conde (in reply to tk

I'll mention this in case it helps anyone out but GSI (whose prices I agree are normally ridiculous) is having its 'biggest ever' clearance sale until the end of January in case there is anything there that someone here would like they might now be able to afford it.
BTW I have no connection to GSI other than being on the mailing list.
