UK: Found another specialist dealer 

Hidden away on the web, and by the sound of it, based in the back of a wine shop (!), I found this:

http://www.cw-wines.co.uk/flamenco.htm

He aint cheap though. That Bernal is nearly 200 quid more than the same model at Stephen Hill!

Anyone been there? (and where on earth is it?)

I spoke with this guy once, he is a private buyer that resells the odd guitar. He never did meet up with me to try some out so I can't comment. Nothing you couldn't get in Spain with a little patience.

Jon,
I came across his site last year. I emailed him 3 or 4 times but got no reply.
I also tried telephoning but all I got was an answering machine.
I left a message, but he never got back.
Waste of time IMO.
I think he's on the South coast, sort of around Brighton.

cheers

Ron

In that direction, nearer Kent perhaps?

Hmm.. one to avoid, by the sound of all that.

Any of you guys been to Stafford Guitars? They seem to be building their choice of flamenco guitars nicely, although several are out of stock at the mo: http://www.staffordguitar.com/

Long way to go for me, though.

Jon,
It looks like exactly the same stock as he had a year ago.
Either he doesn't update his Webpage, hasn't sold any in that time, or doesn't have them anymore.
Maybe the guy's just a plonker?
Get it? (cw wines?)
Och forget it!

I was hoping to get a Vin Blanca from him
