Before reading this I urge you to check out my Seller Feedback, some examples of which can be found at the end of this listing--there's a reason I have THE BEST feedback of any independent seller of used guitars anywhere; if you get it from me, you will NOT be disappointed. 

2023 (#1155) Bernabe model guitar built in the USA by Darren Hippner. Exquisite details, in immaculate condition, this is the best deal I've got going right now (probably for the last year or so), and of all the Classical and Flamenco guitars I've had over the last several years, this is the one I most wish I could keep.

Just a totally wow instrument: astonishing looks, best wood you'll ever see, great tuners, exquisite attention to detail throughout, EASY PLAYER, fantastic case (also in immaculate condition). But, above all, the kind of sound and just pure AURA you won't find on any guitar out there for under $3K. (If you can find another example of this model for less than I'm asking, grab it.)

Sound is rich but articulate, mature, well balanced; woody basses--a hint of Flamenco; crystalline trebles; sonorous in a very Spanish way.

Radically simple three-brace plan designed by Paulino Bernabe

Top: Solid AAAA Red Cedar

Body: Solid Madagascar Rosewood

Fretboard: Solid Gabon Ebony

Neck: Spanish Cedar

Bone nut and saddle
Headstock face, double hole bridge, and bindings: Brazilian Rosewood
Mohawk Nitro Lacquer finish
DeLuxe Gold Gotoh tuners
650mm scale , 52mm nut
Action is 3.4mm on low E at 12th; 3mm on high E; plenty of room to lower.

Note: side dots are temporary and can e easily removed.

First-class Superior five-latch dome top hardshell case.

This guitar lists for $3500, and in my opinion at that price still a great deal, as I think this is a guitar that would please a concert performer. I'll consider offers but this is something I basically don't want to let go of and if I sell everything else I've got, I may withdraw the listing. So you if you want it, grab it or make me a serious offer. You will not be disappointed.

Read my feedback. Buy this guitar. Embrace joy.

I've lowered the prices on all my inflation-fighting listings--offering everything I've got at prices which are close to break-even (in a few cases, below): need cash. I'm open to offers, but all are priced for quick sale; if you want it, grab it.  

  • Note: Reverb now applies a tax of 8% to sales which are shipped to almost all states. That charge will be added on after the sale--I DON'T RECEIVE A PENNY OF IT.  
  • Also note: As with all my guitars, if the shipping expense exceeds what I'm charging, it's on me but if it's less, I'll refund you the difference.  

  • And please don't request a video or sound clip. Not set up for that; there is simply no way a phone can capture the nuances of the sound of a guitar like this--sorry.
