Nice - happy playing man! I remember when I first got my current guitar I only went into the shop to 'just try a better model', then I couldn't let it go - just had to have it. Came out of the shop poor but happy.

That is a sweet looking guitar! What made you decide on Indian Rosewood? I'm also curious about the scale and string height at the 12th fret. Congrats.

RE: my new guitar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (in reply to HemeolaMan

well, i'll tell ya what, i'll post some more pics and some more specs as soon as it arrives..... i'm super excited!

sound clips..... well, i can post a link to a really good recording that i DID NOT play lol

different guitar, same model and make, played by beau bledsoe

that's beau bledsoe www.beaubledsoe.com he's the guy that i worked with to do the arrangements for the guitar making. he is the american ambassador for salvador lol. great guy, really understanding and very attentive.

all together it only cost me 2300 bucks (USD) for the whole thing. i guess buying a guitar from mexico (mind you he's the top guy in the country) really is a wise thing to do considering the dollar to peso exchange rate.

Fantastic!!! Congratulations H-Man.

It looks like a really sweet negra and if yours sounds like the sound bite you provided, you will be in "Guitar Heaven".

Thanks for posting all of the specs, too.

Wow, that is so nice. Is there anything as fun and exciting as getting a new guitar?

HemeolaMan, that's a REAL beauty and Salvador Castillo is da man!


How did you get directly in touch with him to place an order? I'm looking for a new classical.

whats up chiyoDizzad,

i didnt get directly in touch with him, i went through a great guy named beau bledsoe, you can check out the guitars at flamencokc.com

My suggestion, shoot him an email form the email on the site (if you need it i can just give it to you, im not gonna post it, for his privacy's sake lol)

he will work with you and is great at mediating. i'm not sure if salvador has any classicals, but i'm sure he'd be willing to make you one!!!

email me if you need the info

HemeolaMan,

Did you get your guitar?

I ask because my Salvador Castillo blanca (660 scale, german spruce, spanish cypress)... came yesterday...

If you haven't received yet, than oh man are you in for treat.

I've owned a lot of guitars, but never have owned one this good.
