1.5k to 2k Budget for Negra 

Hello guys,

Which Flamenco negra would you guys suggest in the 2k and below range?

I already have a Yamaha that I bought in 2010 and I think it is a great sounding little guitar. However, I would like something better now.

What would be your list if you live in the US and have to buy soon?

I appreciate your comments. thank you and hope you are all safe wherever you are during this pandemic.

Stephen Eden Solea model fits in your budget. I have two of them (both blancas), but I am thinking about (and trying to save for) a negra version!

If you live in the USA and need a guitar soon then consider a Marlon Navarro Guitar, for the price.

Good guitars for the money.

There are other US companies that sell his guitars.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I was looking at Reverb and they have a Valeriano Bernal Maestro concert for like $2500 it's a blanca though.

what do you guys think of the Antonio Bernal guitars.

I would really like a guitar that, if I am not very into it, that I can resell easily online as well. So I can buy something different etc. It is so hard to choose and buy sight unseen.

You have to play it to know if it is for you :-)

I seem to remember I have played an Valeriano Bernal in the eur 2.500 price range ones and remeber it as a very sweet sounding guitar. I liked it but at that time, I found the sound difference to be only minimal better than my Amalio Burguet 2f negra.

At that time I thought that due to the sweet tone, it lacked projection and volume. However, now I think that could also be due to my skill level or the sort of strings.

In that price range, I like the Amalio Burguet guitars. They are very nicely build guitars.

I Guess resale will always suck unless you buy used :-)

Amigos,

What about the Conde Atocha guitars?

In particular
this one the Number 8 Negra $1800 EU
https://www.conde-atocha.com/en/producto/indian-rosewood-n8/

German pine, Indian rosewood, Ebony, cedarwood neck.

This seems to be a better quality guitar compared to Sanchis or Bernal ?

Any guitar at this price requires you to have approval for a few days, otherwise you're stuck with a potential lemon if it doesn't amount to much.
