Hermanos Sanchiz Lopez vs Paco Casti... 

Hi, I have the Manuel Rodriguez C3F, but I'm not too pleased with this guitar. I want to buy a new guitar, my budget is maximum 1100 euros. I have a few models in mind, but I'm not sure which one to buy.

Models on my mind
Hermanos Sanchiz Lopez Solea € 966
Paco Castillo 215F € 884
Raimundo 145, Prudencio Saez G36, Alhambra 7Fc or 8Fc and etc. etc.

And I would be very happy to write the best guitars with this budget, thanks.

Sanchis ... the solea model competes with concert level flamenco guitars imo.

Which Solea is it? The current model or the old one?

Really? I did not know that. Then I have to take this opportunity because I may not have the same price for this guitar again.

I used the Paco Castillo, but I have not been convinced by it. The action and the feel of playing was right for the price, but the sound was kinda dull for me.

Garded for under 1000 Es I can't see how you can go far wrong. I see it at over 1500!!! Don't ding it and I'm sure you'd recover most of your money if it is not a marriage made in heaven

And as our old mate Jim from Glasgow on here used to say "you'll have had the experience and pleasure of owning it and playing it, and at little cost". At best we should think of ourselves as custodians of these works of art. They will with care after all out-live us

And with that Ricardo blessing I'm thinking of getting one

ps: my wife just saw this. I won't be getting one

I found this solea normally 1200 euro anyway. The website seems to be reliable so I don't think there will be a problem.

Here I am playing Sanchis solea model from about ten years old or so. Very flamenco sound.

This is perfect. I really like the sound of the guitar. I hope I can become a flamenco guitarist of this level, even if it will take years.

Garded, don't want to throw you out of your excitement but I believe that the Solea that Ricardo mentions is not the same that is now available.

If it's a Solea from 2015 and on, then it should be somewhat like a 1F model.

Maybe someone here has played both and can share the differences/similarities.

Yes I found solea 2015. You mean 2015 and later versions are not as good as the previous ones?

Can't help you with that, sorry.

From what I remember, when HSL streamlined their production they reused the name Solea from an older discontinued model.

Don’t worry. It’s comfortable, looks great in red and sounds like a Conde

Then I'm very lucky to have the chance to have such a successful guitar at this price.
