Flamenco guitar 

I'm really interested in learning Flamenco style guitar, and I need a good guitar for it. I found the "Cordoba F7 Nylon String Flamenco Guitar Spruce/Cypress" and the "Admira Flamenco" so far. Are either of these guitars good? I don't really want to spend more than $500 if I don't have to. I also heard the Yamahas are pretty decent too, but haven't done much research on them yet. Thanks in advance!

None of them are "good" flamenco guitars but all will work fine for learning on. A "good" flamenco guitar you'll have trouble getting for less then $2,000.

They're all fine, see which one you like playing better and go with it. If you find flamenco is your thing someday you can upgrade.

Thank you! I might not be able to try them out, and would have to order them online. If it's possible could you tell me if there is anything that you prefer about either of them?

Ive never played an Admira but between the Cordoba and the Yamaha I say go Yamaha. The Cordoba doesn't warrant spending the extra $1-200 dollars. I'm always surprised by how decent those Yamaha's are for their price.

RE: Flamenco guitar (in reply to Leñador

I actually have one more question, since i am getting an inexpensive guitar, should I still worry about dehumidifying and things like that? how long do things like that take to hurt the guitar? I live in Florida, but my house if always air conditioned, and I will keep my guitar in it's case whenever not playing it.

I wouldn't worry about it, those factory guitars tend to be sturdier then hand made ones. I live near the beach in LA and I've never had any issues.........

Don't even think about the Admira. Both the Cordoba F7 and the Yamaha 172SF are low end entry level flamenco guitars, perfectly suitable for learning flamenco, but not suitable once you reach a certain playing level. I do think the Cordoba is worth the fairly small extra cost. Both Guitar Center and Sam Ash carry Cordoba, and they both have a good long return policy if you don't like the guitar.
