trash talking conde has been popular since 2003 or so


yes there is certainly that, but for me it's important to try separate the facts from the trash talking and the idolatry. I may have sold the A26, but I kept the A25R . For me that particular A26 ended up feeling like a dud, but hopefully it is just right for the someone else who bought it. The A25 is not perfect for me either, but it is a beautiful instrument and a beast of a guitar

much ado about a VAT tax joke that was a throw away line


Sorry I'm just bored. I've got nothing to say about Conde vs. Burguet. I know which one I would choose, but it's just personal preference and there's no reason to believe Pardo would share my preferences. Just go with your gut man. And if you don't like the guitar you bought, put a deer sticker on it and resell it for 20% more than the original price.

Incidentally the medicine for ridding oneself of crotch crabs is called A200, is there a ...never mind. And don’t ask me how I know these things.

The Conde will hold value better if you change your mind. They're overpriced upfront but not necessarily bad guitars - I have a cheap Ricardo Sanchis Carpio blanca because it sounds like a Conde... Veblen goods.

If my mind was that powerful I would buy cheap guitars sell them on for vast profits

sorry, don't really know what you mean.... I bought both second hand, I'm not really interested in the status of the label, it's to do with how I get on with playing the guitar. The one I sold just didn't suit me, although I have played others of the same model that I thought were really good. Maybe if I took those home and played them for 6 months or a year I would come to the same conclusion, I don't know. The negra I have kept I am still undecided on. I think it is a "better" guitar than the blanca I sold. It is a very powerful guitar (the other one lacked something in this department) but I don't feel it's so easy for me to play. It's very personal and subjective, and I guess also individual guitars from the same make and model will develop and age differently.
