Entry Flamenco Guitar 

Hello Everyone,

I am a steel string player for 8 years now, but definitely a new flamenco guitar player. I'm looking for some advice on buying my first flamenco guitar.

I am looking for a guitar around the $500-$800 range. I don't want the cheapest guitar, but I am on a student budget and a beginner. I've seen the Cordoba GK Studio mentioned a lot or the GK Studio Negra. I tried some guitars out, however I only played with what Guitar Center had, which honestly wasn't the widest selection. I've heard some Yamaha models aren't bad either. I just want to pick the brains of people with more experience than myself with different brands of guitars. I'm really enjoying learning flamenco so I want to get my hands on my own guitar quickly!

Any thoughts or advice on good models in this price range would be greatly appreciated!

Cordoba F7 is $499, and can be had for less than that with a coupon. It is nicer and sounds better than any of the Yamaha CG172F flamencos I've personally tried.

Get yourself a used Fransisco Navarro. You can also find used Esteve guitars at that price range which are pretty nice.

I just got me a Camps MS-5 which fits your budget. It is supposed to be made in Spain, has a sweet sound and plays good too. I am really happy with it, check it out.
