...On guitar No. 23, Classical
With this beautiful instrument, the new, young luthier, Luis Fernandez de Cordoba, shows that he has arrived in the ranks of outstanding American luthiers.

...On guitar No. 15, Flamenco
My overall initial impressions of this instrument are very, very good. It’s well made, it’s light, the French polish is deeper, better done than my current guitar. And it plays really well too - the 650 scale is a better fit for me vs. 660 on my Castillo...it’s very obvious that the trebles are among the best I’ve ever heard…just fantastic.
I had a big smile on my face after playing this guitar. It sounds so smooth, and sweet even when it’s growling. I can see why John Park said your guitars were the talk of the [Guild of American Luthiers] show, that you had “the gift” and that he’d be very happy to own one of your guitars.
In fact, my initial reaction when I first start playing it was wow, this what I imagine it to be like buying/playing a brand new Santos or Barbero…I think that’s the greatest compliment one can give to a flamenco guitar maker.
I posted about your guitar on Foro Flamenco here.
