Here is the oriental player again.

Very nicely put together by Panasonic.

RE: new build for 68' Conde style fl... (in reply to Tom Blackshear

well, just when I thought everything was about finished with guitars, along comes a brilliant craftsman that loves guitar building.

His name is Jearson Picado who lives in a town close to me.

We are currently working on a guitar, 2003 Reyes model flamenco negra, with him building to my specs. His french polish is as good as mine ever was and the cosmetic value of the build is spot on.

There is nothing more I can teach him about the building process, except fine tuning, which seems to be very close to being finalized with this current build.

Honestly, he is a better builder than this writer.

It will probably be about a month before the finish out so I'll try to keep you posted as it goes.

Thanks for thinking about me. I have this one Conde style I need to finish but I'll need help from my student to make it happen.

But first I want him to finish his Reyes style before anything else.

You know how these things go

If his flamenco guitar turns out good, then I'll present it to this list.

So far, his last guitar was very good, so we hope to launch his guitars into the market place when he is finished with it.

Attention Ricardo,

Strangely enough, Nino Miguel used a dark second and third string on this guitar for his bulerias, as the second piece on this you tube, which indicates that this style was used quite a few years ago with flamenco guitarists.

Go figure......

Jearson has been building guitars for about 4 years, and this is his real name.

I haven't heard from him for awhile but I imagine he is about to finish the instrument with French polish.

His cosmetics are outstanding.

And I usually leave him alone until he has something to show me.

So, if the tonal quality is good, then I'll present it to this list.

you know the old saying..........."what's in a name"

Actually just talked to Jearson tonight and he recently sold one of his earlier guitars to Memorial Music in Houston Texas; the store who carries the Francisco Navarro guitars from Mexico.

The store is asking for more.
