I wish I still had my Opel Kadet wagon I paid about $900.00 bucks for. Damn I would rebuild the chassis and the engine it was great little car. It's true what Anders Dad says about Opel Kadet.


I was an Opel record, but never mind. (man, he could talk anyone to sleep about that car) Sorry for being veeery off topic, but since this thread has been around a couple of times, its hard to resist.
So get an old Japaneese factory guitar and a vintage Opel. Cooool.

Oddly, half way there since the early 80s and still most dependable. Of course, some may say I should now trade it for a Conde...

And here I go again.

Tried a few ones from Craigslist, but nothing that was worth the money or in acceptable shape. I will keep looking.

I entered a nice shop and teased myself with a few new higher end. I did enjoy a Sanchis Bulerias more than the Primera, but I can't see a way to stretch that far. The Conde A26 were painful to leave. The owner suggested I check out the Mundo Flamenco 2F. The price is right, sound clip is nice, but it does not sell it outside the EU.

I guess I could listen to many of you and try too stretch to a Sanchis 2F from Mundo, but I would not be able to try on first. Is it smart?


It is always going to be a crap shoot ordering a guitar without playing it.
My understanding is Mundo Flamenco only chooses the better guitars.
They might also have a return policy, but shipping back to Germany could be expensive.
Suggest you email Johannes there I think he is a pretty legit seller, if he says the guitar is good that might be help.
Being in the US its always a dilemma to choose between a guitar you can find locally and play but with very limited choices and often higher prices and a guitar you can order from Europe with many more choices but with a risk it may not sound and play as expected. Of course the more patient you are and longer you search you are more likely to find something.

Keep that beauty. Its very sweet and I like you havent changed the rims to something flashy.
Remember that you will find a guitar. Maybe its already been built and if not, I believe they have cut down the tree.

My brother has a 1973 Opel GT in new condition.

Hey meknyc, just curious, have you gone to the GSI web site? They have some new selections that are decently priced.

I just bought my Felipe Conde negra from them. I love that guitar!

Just a thought...

Thank you all.
In the end, the 2F was my best choice. Once it arrives and gets a few days rest, it is on to lotsa practice and lessons.
