My new Stephen Eden Negra guitar! 

Hello everyone!
I'm so excited about my new guitar!
The guitar has a perfect set up! (relief,fretwork,tension,intonation).
I strongly recommend Stephen to anyone who wants to buy a very good decent guitar.
Communication with Stephen was excellent.

Back & side: Indian rosewood (20 year aged wood)
Top: Red cedar
Neck:Cedrella with carbon reinforced
Scale length: 662mm

It’s a great guitar, and you almost played some flamenco.

The speed builder! I remember he proved (to me at least) Conde brothers could have easily built as many top line guitars as claimed and it was a surprise (to me at least). Can’t remember if I heard one, but yours sounds great. But of course you are playing it very fast and rhythmic, which on one hand gives a lot of information to me as a player about the feel of it, and on the other, it sounds very dry and percussive, and some folks might want more lyrical things demonstrated. Anyway, I like it, congrats!

Thank you very much Ricardo! Of course I will make more videos, hopefully soon. I think I can play almost anything with this guitar. It depends on how you play and how the guitar is set up. I think you understand what I mean.

Any reasons for 662? Btw, are you a pro? Where did you learn flamenco guitar so well?

Some rasgueado would be nice, the arpeggio/ picado diet leaves a person kind of hungry for the beef.

I love it, sounds awesome!
I like Indian rosewood/cedar combinations (have one as well), so it's always cool to hear such guitars.

662mm is more comfortable to me. Especially from the 7 fret and further. And I think the attack of the sound is better according to many luthiers.I have studied classical guitar in a conservatory. Also,I like many kinds of music and I try to combine them somehow. I learn "flamenco" by my self. I'm not a flamenco player.I play some pieces or falsetas that I like, and that's it.

Amigo,

The opening chords in your video sound like the solea from Antonio Rey's first album. Have you worked that piece out in its entirety? If so, can you post a video? I've yet to find a video of Antonio playing it.
