This past summer we received a visit from a client who brought an old guitar in search of some advice regarding the instrument’s origin and general condition. It was a concert grade flamenco guitar built by Domingo Esteso in 1930. It had a German spruce soundboard, cypress back and sides and wooden tuning pegs. The client told us that that his family has been in possession of the guitar since the 1930’s and it had been left and forgotten in a store room for quite some time. He did not know that the guitar was built by one of the most important guitar builders of the so-called Madrid School.
