guitar collections 

I imagine that every aficionado has more than one guitar: I have 3: one blanca, one acoustic and one hybrid electric that looks as if it might have come from the taller del maestro Escribano.

Gerundino, Alhambra, Gibson.

I also have 3: one Martin folk, one Valeriano Bernal, and one Hermanos Borja ("El Viejin" series). I'm pretty sure Pimientito put up pictures of the Borja somewhere on here.

Was there such a thing in 1986? Or did you mean Felipe V ?

I envy your collection. Hope you got insurance for em guitars. Looks like small fortune.
Which one is your favorite?

No-one, in nearly 20 years, has asked that question even in jest, so it kind of hurts me.

Oops... You just seem to have a disproportionately large number of non-flamenco guitars. I sure would expect the balance to be the other way around. Anyway only meant it as a joke. I am sorry if it sounded offensive to you, sure didnt mean it.

RE: guitar collections (in reply to zendalex

The 1974 Blanca with pegs I tend to play the most because the sound is characteristic of the times back then when I grew up playing flamenco. More recent guitars have better volume overall and great responsiveness but the sound tends to be more neutral if there is such a thing. Character is a very personal thing but when you play certain guitars you hear certain times and places,,,very esoteric I lnow lol

Living here in Sydney Australia I havent insured the guitars....the premiums are way too expensive...and the guitars are too difficult to put an acceptable value on.

I have a lot of electrics because I enjoy modding and improving them. Now, I am beginning to make my own. One flamenco is enough for me nowadays.

I have one classical that I posted in a thread here. One Fender strat, and one Hofner bass—if basses count as well. Those three are all I need.

My collection is way less expensive, but I finally found a way to insure them - it is part of house insurance, where the guitars are itemized - and they calculate additional premium based on the valuations you attach to the guitars. Its in the US though. Anyway it was not automatic with all companies, as some require a real appraisal instead.

Wow.. Probably the biggest collection of Glenn's I see owned by a single person. I have a spruce double top peg-head also, but recently found to rarely playing it in favor of my other guitars. My Glenn produces very clean and powerful tone, but to my liking it lacks personality somehow.

Last I visited Pedro cortes in New Jersey, he had several of them. He and Jason McGuire were big advocates, due to heavy golpes they found the double top reinforcement was essential.

I know Pedro very well - I used to study with him about 10 years back. At the time he got his first guitar as a gift from Jason. Glenn did some restoration work on it and that way Pedro got it - Jason totally destroyed the top. In fact Jason is in that sense legendary as everyone knows he can do it. Wondering what he used for the nail strengthener :))

Anyway, Pedro talked all his students into getting at least one guitar from Glenn. There was a line just from us in NY area, I had to wait for quite a while. And in fact the guitar that was shipped to me was built for somebody else, and it was a blanca while I originally requested a negra. Anyway I think it was for the better as the guitar I got is a total cannon. It blew away with its power every other guitar I saw since. But at a price of a lack of character (or at least that is what I think after seeing Condes and the likes)

BTW wondering if Jason was ever forgiven for whatever the heck his misdeeds were and offered to re-join the foro?

He was Fred Sanford for several years and disappeared at the same time he quit Facebook. Me I can’t understand/get into this fascination with Instagram. But I see he remains quite visible there.

Thanks for the pointer, I used to be subscribed to Jason's teaching site around 2008, before even I met Pedro. I follow Jason on youtube, I didnt know he is active on insta. Will add him there. He is one a heck of a talented guy. I remember even Paco praised him and visited him in Oakland.
