Vintage 1977 Paulino Bernie 1a (Brazilian Rosewood) Classical Guitar, w/Original Case
Scale Length: 660mm; Spruce Top; Made in Spain; w/Original Tuners & Case

Here is a very nice Bernabe 10-String model from 1977, with a spruce top, and beautiful back/sides set of Brazilian rosewood. This has been my main guitar for the last 10-years or so, and I believe I am the 2nd owner of this guitar. These Bernnabe 10-strings from the period when they were made by Paulino Bernie Sr., are both professional concert instruments as well as collectors items, since Paulino Bernabe is considered one of the very best luthiers of the 20th Century. On top of that, he was the foremost builder of 10-string guitars, as Narciso Yepes would order Bernabe 10-string guitars for all his students, and Bernabe would make these in batches of 6 guitars, which was pretty much unheard of for that time, or even up through today. Strangely, these Bernabe 10-Strings are almost never coming up for sale any more, so here is an extremely rare opportunity to own one in very good condition, for much less than the price of a new car!!
