    Re-listing this with a new price. At this price, you will not find a better flamenco guitar than this 2019 Camps Primera blanca made in Spain. Solid spruce top, solid cypress back and sides, ebony fretboard, lacquer finish, great playability (action at the 12 fret is about 3 mm), great intonation, and this guitar is a cannon! Weighing in at 4 lbs (yes, you heard that right), This guitar is incredibly responsive with great flamenco pura tone. These guitars represent the best value in the flamenco market. It plays and sounds like a master built guitar at four times my listing price. These are really fabulous instruments. There are a few small thumbnail marks above the golpeadore, but the guitar is in excellent condition. This is a gem, guys! I’m only selling to make room for a very special classical. If you have had any inclination about exploring flamenco, this is a great opportunity for you. HSC included.

    $900 + buyer pays fees & shipping.

    I just made a deposit with Mijail Kharash in Granada, Spain to build a cedar/Indian rosewood classical. I bought a world class flamenco negra built by Jose Gonzalez Lopez last year, and now there’s no going back. I will probably have Kharash build a blanca for me when this one is finished. Here’s what the top will look like:

    Mark, sorry for ignorance, but what is difference between a flamenco guitar and a Classical?

    Hi Darren. Primarily, there are a few things: Flamencos tend to have lower action and a golpeadore (pickguard that is usually clear on modern flamencos like this one) to accommodate the technique. Golpe is the tapping on the top with the RH ring finger or thumb, so the top needs to be protected. Flamencos are braced a little differently (lighter, I think) as well to produce a more forward (brighter) sound and attack. The more traditional flamencos (like this one) have sides and back made from cypress, which is also a bit brighter than rosewood. Cypress seems similar to maple to my ears.

    Altogether, it produces the sharp, percussive sound of flamenco with a quick attack and rapid decay. This one very much matches that description. It’s very resonant and loud with a very pure flamenco sound. It plays exceptionally well and is light as a feather.

    One can also observe that a Flamenco guitar's headstock tilts backwards at a slightly greater angle than a classical's. What's the reason for that, I wonder?

    Yes, I think so. Probably for additional string tension, though I’m not an expert.
