The seller shipped immediately, and the guitar arrived as promised; the same guitar as in the picture. It is brand new, beautiful, and plays wonderfully. I asked Eduardo if the guitar pictured was the exact guitar for sale, and he assured me that it was. The very same guitar arrived, brand new and well packaged. It looks beautiful and is a joy to hold and play with. My experience with doing business with Eduardo and Guitars from Spain was exceptional. Thank you. Roger Caffey

Had a great experience with Guitars from Spain. Eduardo took the time to explain many details about the guitars ... and other things as well. I was able to spend a good amount of time trying different guitars and finding the right one for me. My Juan Hernandez Romance cedar guitar is amazing! , and I am very pleased with it. Definitely recommend the place and experience. Sebastian B.

I couldn't be more thrilled about my experience with Eduardo at Guitars from Spain. I have been playing the same acoustic guitar since 1990, but I mainly play classical pieces and have been desperate for an affordable, Spanish-style classical guitar. I did my research and knew that I wanted an Esteve guitar. I found an amazing selection of Esteve guitars on the Guitars from Spain website and was able to purchase my ideal guitar. It arrived in pristine condition and Eduardo was unbelievably attentive in his email communications during the shipping process. I am completely thrilled and will definitely be using Eduardo the next time I upgrade my guitar. Kimberly Berens

I recently purchased a truly magnificent classical guitar from Eduardo in Boca Raton, Florida. The guitar is somewhat rare in that it is a hand-built and signed Palo Escrito from Paracho, Mexico from Master luthier, Enrico Enriquez. What has made the guitar more than a superb instrument however is the expertise of the Guitars of Spain shop, Eduardo Macadar. Himself a masterful Flamenco player and musical educator, Eduardo's vast and worldly knowledge of classical guitar quality and construction is second to none! Having played and owned several high-end and custom guitars myself, I can honestly say that purchasing a fine guitar from GFS is to experience world-class treatment. Eduardo knows how to perfectly match a client's needs and objectives to the right instrument. Without reservations, I wholeheartedly recommend Eduardo and his GFS guitar offerings for your purchase.

I’ve been on the market for a good quality classical for some time now. I’ve found lots of online places with good products, meaning I would have to make a deal without knowing how the guitar would really sound, without touching or playing it. It was a difficult proposition!
Then I found Guitars from Spain.
Let’s just be honest and say the regular music stores in the area do not offer the products that GFS offers, not to mention the personalized attention you get.
Eduardo Macadar (owner) has made this experience much easier than expected. He put at my disposition around 6 or 7 different instruments, with different materials, finishing, and characteristics based on a preliminary conversation we had over the phone before the meeting. I visited his studio and literally played for hours (yes, I said hours) all the guitars he had lined up for me until I found the one. No sales pressure, a very comfortable environment. Eduardo demonstrates deep knowledge of his products, and explained all details of each instrument he offered, showing differences and similarities between models. I happily left his place carrying what I believe was the right choice for me. I highly recommend Guitars from Spain. Call Eduardo and you will not be dissatisfied.

Second purchase, Classical guitar
A few months ago I purchased a flamenco guitar from Guitars from Spain (see paragraph below). Recently I purchased a classical guitar, and my experience was just as positive as the first time. The (signed, handmade) guitar is a one-of-a-kind beauty. It arrived in perfect condition, with a perfect set-up, and great "extras" (case, strings, humidifier, guitar protector). I had seen detailed photos and video clips, so I was pretty sure about my choice, but Eduardo (the owner of Guitars from Spain) was very generous in allowing me time to get to know the guitar before making up my mind. I can't say enough positive things about this dealer. The personal customer attention is unparalleled, and the quality of the instruments is top-notch. Prices are extremely fair, considering the craftsmanship, import costs, customer service, and included accessories. If you aren't sure what kind of guitar you want or need, contact Eduardo and he will find your perfect match!

I met Eduardo from GFS, in a mad dash for a fine guitar. This 6-PS is one of the 3 finest guitars I've ever had. Eduardo had out several guitars that I played. all were very fine, good playability and deep tones from great wood. The 6-PS was the choice. After getting it home and playing on it in my home the playability and the tone, a Western Red Cedar backed by warmth from Madagascar Rosewood and getting as many different tones as I could get with it I'd like to tell anybody that's looking for the perfect balance between tone and playability to choose this one. The fretting is sure, and that's what makes me call this one, one of the 3 best guitars I've ever owned. All the lines from the nut to the bridge, string, fretboard, top of the guitar to the bridge with the doming behind the bridge, are perfect. Hats off to you, Eduardo. I'll be playing this one for a long time to come. Kevin Bishins

Hi, my name is Luis. I am one of Prof. Eduardo's students, and my experience with him has been phenomenal from the beginning. I started learning how to play a classical guitar with him, and I felt the need to obtain a new guitar to further my studies. When I asked him about it, he set some time aside for me to try out a couple of guitars and see which ones I liked. So I wound up bringing my mother with me, and the three of us spent hours together just talking about the guitars. Prof. Eduardo is such an educated, kind, and passionate person when it comes to guitars. He gave us his honest opinions on the guitars he showed us, and we ended up leaving with a Prudencio Saez guitar of fantastic craftsmanship. Every time I start playing I fall in love with it all over again. If you plan on getting a guitar, GFS is the correct spot. You will be put in the hands of a professional who truly cares about their work. Boca Raton FL.

Overall amazing service and incredible guitar! Arrived in perfect condition with a beautiful case, huge cloth, a set of good strings, and a humidifier. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Eduardo at Guitars From Spain is fantastic and provides superior service. He asked me a ton of questions so he could get to know my playing style, interests, and knowledge. Ultimately guiding me to, in my opinion, the perfect guitar for me. I highly recommend getting your next guitar from his shop.

"Many years ago I had played jazz and folk guitar for a long time, taking jazz lessons for over 7 years, but when I was completing my dissertation I had to stop the guitar and had not touched one for over 2 decades. I went online to find a guitar center near me.
I did not want to purchase an unknown guitar online without holding it, feeling it, and getting a sense of the quality and tone. Before meeting Eduardo at Guitars From Spain I had visited a different guitar shop, received no service, and had a judgemental attitude that I should choose a small guitar (even though I knew the sound quality would be lessened) because of my body type. Reluctantly, they finally let me "touch" the small guitar and with even more resistance they finally let me hold one of their larger guitars. They explained nothing about the quality of their guitars, whether they were real cedar or laminated fake wood. I would not trust their judgment on what type of guitar I should buy.
So it was with pure delight that I contacted Eduardo. I wanted to love my guitar the way I had loved my old Segovia guitar from Spain so many years ago. Eduardo offered me the information, insights, assistance, and support I needed to make a wise choice.
When I arrived in his home -studio he had 5 guitars ready for me to touch, play and get a feel for. I knew immediately which one felt perfect for me. Eduardo sat with me and explained carefully the different qualities of guitars and how they are made. He showed me a video of a factory in Spain where my guitar was hand-crafted. And then he insisted I have a free guitar lesson to create good habits from the start. Now, a week later, I am thrilled with my guitar, slowly practicing scales and chords and restoring my memory of what it feels like to strum my songs." Boca Raton
Dr. Erica Goodstone September 8, 2022
Great experience consulting with Eduardo! If you’re looking for a classical/flamenco guitar I definitely recommend it. Hi brings guitars from Spain that he’s carefully choosing by himself and you can try and play them by appointment. That’s how I got a beautiful Vicente Carillo that I really like. Thank you very much, Eduardo! Key West

Eduardo, thank you for the absolutely beautiful Esteve 8 guitar! The gift recipient truly loves it! I live about an hour away and am extremely grateful for the guitar being hand-delivered. It is in pristine condition and was well protected in the case. I'm glad I found your store while searching the internet. Also, I appreciate your communication and outstanding customer service. I would recommend your store to anyone looking to buy a Spanish guitar. Thanks again! 🙂 -FL, USA

The Esteve requinto is exactly as described and shown in the video. The purchase price includes a high-quality case, an extra set of strings, and a guitar humidifier. The requinto was shipped quickly, packed well and there was very good communication with the seller. It was a fine transaction. Thank you.- David Cochrane
David Cochrane. August 11, 2022
My experience with Guitars From Spain was excellent. Not only is the owner, Eduardo, very knowledgeable about guitars, but he is so enthusiastic about finding great instruments that it made the whole process a lot of fun. You can tell he is a musician with a passion for guitars (the sound, the wood, the maintenance), and that is always a big selling point for me. I happened to contact Eduardo about a flamenco guitar on his site right around the time he was leaving for Spain to procure some additional guitars. The one on his site had been sold, but he promised to find me another equally beautiful one while he was away. What he found surpassed my expectations. He even sent me videos from the workshop of the guitar maker (Prudencio Saez) in Spain and pictures of what he had found for me.
When the guitar finally arrived in the U.S., he made sure it had been properly set up, and he shipped it to me with a humidifier, extra strings, and a velvet cover to protect the body of the guitar. The box arrived a little dented, and I was worried before opening it, but I should have known he had sent me the perfect case as well. The guitar was completely protected and I absolutely love it. Considering the costs of shipping from Spain, plus Customs fees, plus all the extras (the set-up, a fantastic case, extra strings, a humidifier, and the cover), not to mention that Eduardo personally selects the guitars he sells and checks them thoroughly before shipping them to his customers, the prices are more than fair.
The best part is that I don't feel like I have a mass-produced, cookie-cutter guitar, but something much more special and unique, and something that actually belongs to the tradition behind the Spanish music I'm playing.
Stephany Siciarz July 18, 2022
I studied cello for 7 years and flute for 7 years, both with professional symphony concert musicians. I am 70 years old. I am now studying classical guitar with Eduardo. He is as fine a teacher as I have had. His knowledge is extensive and his ability to teach is excellent. He knows how to communicate well and adjust to the learning and physical demands of his students. He is warm and sincere and you can clearly see how much he loves to teach and wants you to enjoy being able to play to the best of your capabilities. I highly recommend him as an instructor for both beginner and advanced students.
Gerald Black March 10, 2022
Many thanks to the folks at Guitars from Spain in Boca Raton, FL for making my recent guitar purchase experience a pleasant one. I purchased the Prudencio Saez Blanca Guitar and could not be happier! Eduardo is very knowledgeable about the craftsmanship of making such a fine instrument. He was patient with all my questions and at no time did I feel rushed or pressured to make a decision. These guys are full service and I highly recommend them! Thank you!
David Overton March 10, 2022
I was looking for a guitar as a gift. It is difficult enough to get the right guitar for oneself. I want to praise the knowledgeable advice and time dedication of Eduardo, who patiently assisted me to reach the perfect guitar for my budget. A valuable combination of service and guitars is not easy to find these times. Thank you again. Victor Rozino
Victor Rozino February 7, 2022
My experience with Guitars from Spain was excellent. Was looking for a really nice guitar (for my wife's birthday) and stumbled upon this site. Talking to Eduardo was a pleasure, this guy knows his business like no other. The Spanish guitar I ended up buying is superb. Thank you. My wife loves it!
Raul Urastian February 7, 2022
Hi Eduardo; The best guitar I’ve ever held in my hands, and I have held many. Thanks a lot. Mitch Karadanis
Mitch Karadnis February 7, 2022
Hi Eduardo! It was so nice to visit your studio when me and my parents were in Florida last week. I was looking for a Spanish guitar for many weeks until I found your store! I couldn’t believe the beautiful guitars that you had, my parents were so happy to we found you! You took the time to show us and to explain to us all the different guitars, and different models. Although I’m not a professional I wanted a good guitar to continue my studies in Budapest, I and my parents want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the time you took to us. I love my new guitar I hope to see you in Budapest one day. Thank You! Szulii

I started taking lessons from Eduardo Macadar of Guitars from Spain about four years ago. I was using an old hand-me-down guitar from one of my kids. Eduardo never suggested that I get a better guitar until I told him I thought I was ready. He then sent me to a guitar store to try different instruments to get an idea of what I might enjoy playing. Only then did he mention that he had some guitars available for me to try.
I tried three or four different types of guitars until I found one that felt good and sounded great. Eduardo didn't sell me a guitar. He helped me find the right one for me.
BTW, he is also an excellent teacher. He clearly cares about all aspects of teaching - the music, the instrument, and, most of all, the student.
David Mintz January 20, 2022
Absolutely professional experience buying a great guitar from Eduardo, Guitars from Spain (GFS). Eduardo is highly knowledgeable about Spanish guitars and him being a guitar player makes a difference in what quality of guitars he offers. I was presented with several guitars on several levels, so I could quickly focus on relevant guitars to me. I own several concert-level guitars and yet ended up buying a fantastic classical guitar from Eduardo. It was a very pleasant experience. I highly recommend anybody looking to buy a guitar to visit the GFS.
Peter Krois January 14, 2022
I have the good fortune of living close to Eduardo’s studio so I was able to visit him in person to try out multiple guitars. Eduardo’s passion for classical guitar is palpable and his sole concern was for me to find an instrument that truly “spoke to me.” We each played multiple repetitions of four guitars, ultimately homing in on the one which I preferred. For those of you who cannot visit him and need some direction, trust that he will listen deeply to your interests and concerns and do his best to help you select what will work best for you.
I chose the Prudencio Saez 6 cedar guitar which is so superior to what I have now. Eduardo outfitted me with a complimentary guitar case, extra strings, and other items and taught me how to use them to properly care for my new guitar. The entire experience was amazing and I am so confident I made the right choice in choosing Guitars from Spain.
Michael Miller January 14, 2022
I came to Florida from abroad in need of a new guitar. I searched in all of the music stores around South Florida to no avail. Then with a stroke of luck I searched “classical guitar near me” and found Eduardo‘s website Guitars from Spain.
I immediately called the number and was greeted by Eduardo the owner. He was so kind and patient and ready to answer all of my questions with deep knowledge and expertise. I set an appointment for the next day and within two hours I had the most amazing new guitar, far beyond any expectations that I had. The two hours I spent with Eduardo choosing the right guitar for me were also Guided by his humble expertise, patience, and understanding of the instruments from the makers to the workmanship. If you’re looking for a classical guitar I can’t think of any better place than guitars of Spain. Thank you so very much Eran Glants

I Bought a Paco Castillo T-C / E guitar, an excellent instrument, an impeccable quality finish but most importantly, a spectacular sound both amplified and unamplified. But the most incredible thing was the attention I received via chat at the time of the purchase decision. Honestly, I did not know very well which guitar to buy, as everyone knows, there is a huge variety in the market of different options, brands, and models, so I asked them for advice via chat. Eduardo - Guitars from Spain team, are not are simply guitar sellers, they really understand, truly They must be musicians and excellent professionals because in a few minutes they knew how to detect what type of guitar or rather, what guitar was ideal for me. I blindly recommend that you seek advice and buy with them, my experience was spectacular, I even received the guitar at home before the scheduled date.(Spanish Original)
Compre una guitarra Paco Castillo T-C/E, excelente instrumento, terminación de una calidad impecable pero lo mas importante, un sonido espectacular tanto amplificada como sin amplificar. Pero lo mas increíble, fue la atención que recibí vía chat al momento de la decisión de la compra. Honestamente yo no sabia muy bien cual guitarra comprar, como todos saben, hay una variedad gigante en el mercado de diferentes opciones, marcas y modelos, asique les pedí asesoramiento via chat, Eduardo y el equipo de Guitars from Spain, no son simplemente vendedores de guitarras, ellos entienden de verdad, seguramente deben ser musicos y excelentes profesionales, porque en pocos minutos supieron detectar que tipo de guitarra o mejor dicho, que guitarra era ideal para mi. Les recomiendo ciegamente que se asesoren y compren con ellos, mi experiencia fue espectacular, inclusive recibí la guitarra en casa antes de la fecha prevista.

The business was absolutely fantastic and the service was phenomenal. I really appreciated the questions I was asked so you could put the right guitar, for me, in my hands. Sure enough... you delivered n perfect condition sounds incredible, and I couldn't be happier with the choice I made to grab my Jellinghaus from you! Thanks again, Eduardo!
Brent Phillinps August 30, 2021
This is a unique shopping experience I’ve never had before and I’d love to share it with anyone thinking of buying a guitar online.
I was hesitant initially to purchase the guitar online without trying it out, regardless of how many times I’ve been searching for, everything I want to know about this particular model on the internet. I sent a text inquiry to Guitars From Spain, and Ed didn’t take long to get back to me even though he was out of the country at the time. Through several text communications, I got the feeling that he is not just selling instruments, he actually loves them and would like people to enjoy them as well.
That evening when I decided to make an offer, Ed kind of “interviewed” me for more than half an hour on the phone just to make sure this is the right instrument for me. He played some tunes on it to let me hear once again if the sound resonated with my expectation. He went through every detail with me about the guitar luthier, the care of the guitar, and the delivery instructions, etc.. I didn’t imagine that buying a guitar would be like taking an exam, but immediately I felt responsible for the commitment I was going to make.
The guitar was shipped well-packaged and arrived safely in a week while Ed kept sending me the shipping updates and “be patient” notes. His kind reminders kept arriving even after I received my guitar. You know, just like a parent cares for his beloved child, Ed cares about not only the guitar itself but also its companionship with the new owner. I’m pretty touched, to be honest.
Ed was right. I’m extremely happy and already fell in love with my new guitar. Not to mention the beautiful craftsmanship, it’s singing voice brightens up every moment of my day. I’m glad that Ed made my purchase experience so pleasant and personal, and the whole transaction so smooth. I’ve no doubt recommend Guitars From Spain to everyone, because it’s not about getting a new guitar only, but also the attention and the love of music that Ed delivers during the process.

Thank you Eduardo for the magnificent and beautiful I bought from you. Esteve 7RS.Before I had bought 3 guitars in Guitar Center, but I always had to return them because they were brought to me scratched, they seemed used, from the Alhambra brand. I met Eduardo -GFS, and he dedicated two hours to me, reviewing and explaining each of his guitars so that I could decide which one I wanted to stay with, the truth is that they were all excellent, but he also helped me to say which one would suit me better. and this included the price. Eduardo is a serious person when it comes to dealing with the client, and what most caught my attention is that he never encouraged me to buy the more expensive one. He knows very well what one wants and why. He gave me very good advice and I hope one day to do business with Eduardo again. Hector Vallejo
Para darle las gracias al seńor Eduardo por la magnífica y hermosa guitarra queadquiri (Steve 7RS). Ya antes había comprado 3 guitarras en Guitar center, pero siempre las tenía que retornar por que me las traían rayadas , parecían usadas de la marca Alambra. Hasta que me encontré con Eduardo-GFS y me dedicó dos horas,revisando y explicándome cada una de sus guitarras, para que pudiera decidir con cual me quería quedar,la verdad es que todas eran excelentes pero también me ayudo a decir con cual me acomodaría mejor y esto incluía el precio. Eduardo es una persona seria para el trato con el cliente, y lo que más me llamo la atención es que nunca incitó a comprar la más cara, el sabe muy bien lo que uno desea y para que.Me dio muy buenos concejos y espero algún día volver tener negocios con Eduardo.

I must say that the entire experience with yourself and Guitars From Spain has been awesome. Answering a business line as you're about to perform before 250 people, now that's service. I was very impressed with your genuine concern that I choose the right guitar for my experience level and type of music played, the courtesy and respect you deliver are appreciated. The prompt shipment and on-time delivery as promised were refreshing. My beautiful Prudencio Saez PS-34 arrived in perfect condition, it truly is a work of art! The case is luxurious and fits like a glove. The extra strings and other gifts were a pleasant surprise. I would highly recommend Eduardo and Guitars From Spain to everybody, it is the right choice! God Bless, David G Brown

I needed a nylon string guitar for my son. I tried many different online and physical stores until I found these guys in Florida. A fellow called Eduardo picked up the phone and helped me understand I was looking for my son. After a few minutes, I decided this was the right company to work with. The guitar was shipped the next day and although the weather here in New York is horrible we got the guitar with FedEx in perfect condition. I really appreciate all the help Eduardo gave me. The Narrow Body guitar fits my son's size and hands perfectly and the sound is awesome. I hope to visit your studio next time I travel to Florida.
Jorge Caspan April 23, 2021
Guitars from Spain provided me an outstanding service. They have a great selection of high-quality professional & concert guitars for competitive prices. Ed spends time with you to make sure you are getting the right guitar for yourself and your needs. I couldn’t be more pleased with the sound and look of my new guitar with the beautiful granadillo back and sides...great volume and projection! I definitely recommend it!
Assma Twahir April 23, 2021
This place is for serious buyers. Excellent quality on every guitar plus guitars from luthiers that you would not see on a regular music store. Really friendly and serious people. I really recommend it, if you are looking for a good quality guitar instrument visit Guitars From Spain. I had the best experience there.

Hola, mi nombre es Jairo. Vivo en la ciudad de Miami. Por algùn tiempo andube buscando por internet y tambien por medio de amistades si alguien tenìa conomiento de algun sitio en internet donde distribuyeran guitarras españolas. Nadie pudo informarme, hasta que por una chiripa como decimos en centro amèrica, me topè con un sitio que jamàs pensè encotrar, se llama Guitars From Spain y no solo eso, sino que alli tambièn encontrè uno de los requintos de mayor demanda, como son los requintos de marca Estevè. Este instrumento es una joya debido a su sonido, calidad, estructura, estabilidad y sobre todo su presentaciòn. Estamos super contentos con esta compra tan acertada que hemos hecho. Pero hay mas, no solo este instrumento es el que ha causado tanta impresiòn en nosotros, sino su distribuidor el señor Eduardo Macadar. Yo tengo experiencia a diario con el pùblico, y no me habìa encontrado con nadie como el señor Macadar con tanta amabilidad, educaciòn y un espìritu de servicio al cliente espectacular. A todo aquèl que lea este comentario, le recomiendo, si tiene en mente comprar una guitarra, requinto o algùn otro instrumento de cuerda, que se dirija al señor Macadar, no te vas arrepentir. Gracias.Hello everyone, my name is Jairo. I live in the city of Miami. For some time I was looking on the internet and also through friends if anyone had knowledge of a site on the internet where they would distribute Spanish guitars. No one could inform me until because of a fluke, as we say in Central America, I came across a site that I never thought I would find, it is called Guitars From Spain and not only that, but there I also found one of the most demanded Requintos, such as the Estevè Brand. This instrument is a gem due to its sound, quality, structure, stability, and above all its presentation. We are super happy with this successful purchase we have made. But there is more, not only this instrument is the one that has caused such an impression on us, but its distributor, Mr. Eduardo Macadar. I have daily experience with the public, and I have not met anyone like Mr. Macadar with such kindness, education, and a spirit of spectacular customer service. To everyone who reads this testimony, I recommend, if you have in mind to buy a guitar, requinto or some other string instrument, to go to Mr. Macadar, you will not regret it. TorubioOmar

The great thing about Eduardo and Guitars From Spain is that you can’t go wrong. He works with great builders and he is great about guiding you towards the guitar for you. He is knowledgeable (a great player himself) and very open to making something work for you. I just referred a friend to him and I got great feedback too. Osvaldo Gold

Eduardo's personalized approach when helping me find what I needed showed he holds all his customers' interests in high regard. Eduardo was very knowledgeable and passionate about his craft, taking his time to explain each instrument's characteristics and purpose so I could decide what was best for me. Lastly, I was given valuable expertise on how to properly care for my guitar so I can enjoy it to the fullest for countless years to come. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to buy the best quality instruments to give Guitars from Spain a chance, as they will not be disappointed.

Wow wow wow, where to begin. I guess we can start with the fact that Ed is amazing! Seriously the nicest person to work with and you can tell he really loves what he does and really cares for his instruments. He truly goes above and beyond in customer service and customer experience. We live in a very dry and cold climate and Ed went out of his way to ensure our guitar was shipped safely and included a humidifier. We absolutely love our flamenco Negra and can’t thank Ed enough!- Christine Jerzerick

Hi Eduardo, Just a short note to express my satisfaction with the beautiful acoustic guitar I purchased from you today. I found you on the internet under “Guitars from Spain” Your presentation compelled me to contact you without bothering to call other vendors… During our short telephone introduction, I was puzzled by the fact that you, as the owner of Emac Music & Events, a company dedicated to the entertainment industry, were also involved in the sale of Classical and flamenco guitars. You then proceeded to inform me that guitars are actually “your passion” as well as the most important component of your identity. Your narrative was edifying, enlightening, educational, artistic, and most of all, it exhibited a warmth rarely found in business-related individuals.
My husband and I took the ride from Delray Beach to Boca Raton not long after our telephone conversation. Surprise, surprise, we did not expect to visit a “Home Studio”… When you came out to greet us and led us into your office, your courteous and gracious demeanor had us mesmerized…
The guitar you showed me was absolutely gorgeous, You took the time to familiarize me with the instrument, letting me touch it “very carefully” per your direction, showed me similar instruments that were higher and lower in value and price, in short, you made it a most enjoyable experience. After I made the decision to purchase it at your firm price (no haggling here), you took the time to demonstrate how to care for it, while you handled it as though it were a young child. Thank you Eduardo for a most pleasant afternoon, thank you for sending me home with an instrument that no doubt will enhance the few years I still have on this earth Thank you for being who you are.

Got a new job in Boca Raton, FL. I love guitars and was exploring local music shops when I found “Guitars From Spain” on the web and called just for local knowledge.
Well, this guy Eduardo, answered and we had a totally ‘no pressure’ chat about guitars. He asked: How are you? What do you play? What do you like? He said: I like Classical and Flamenco guitars, I have some in stock you might want to see ...here’s my phone number and address, come on by if you like.....bye.
I made an appointment and here’s this normal guy, who happens to love guitars, music, and fishing! He started bringing out new guitars after new guitars, “OK, now look at this one...play one note... hear it ring?...see this one?....smell in the soundhole...can you smell the cedar?....look at the grain in this wood....this body is narrower, hear the difference in the bass? this is the attack you want in flamenco... Now, I’ve had some trauma to my left (neck) hand and Eduardo was receptive to my concerns. (I consider my guitar ability as an amateur even though I’ve been playing 50 yrs.)
Five or six guitars later he showed me a Neris Gonzalez Milagro Cedar top, Rosewood back, and sides-fan fretted beauty. The thing was not only gorgeous to look at and meticulously finished but the high notes rang like a bell and the low notes spoke like a cannon. Love at first sound. She went home with me.
Three lessons later usually towards the end of one of Eduardo's gentle, patient, and profound lessons he says, “can I play your guitar for a moment?” Of course, I said, and I pass him the instrument. Eduardo gets LOST simply listening to himself effortlessly playing Leo Brouwer’s “A Day in November”. I say, “Eduardo, when are you going to teach me that?”......and he answers ......“not yet”. Thank you for helping me getting an amazing guitar.

After spending hours trying to find a high-quality instrument in my area, I was lucky to find Eduardo of Guitars from Spain. He was able to get me a Wolfgang Jellinghaus Espanola 1A which sounded absolutely beautiful. He really took the time to allow me to see the differences of quality between the many guitars he had in selection. Demonstrating the differences in quality really helped me make an informed decision about the purchase of my guitar. My experience with Eduardo was a great one and I highly recommend anyone looking for a higher quality instrument to look no further and give Eduardo at Guitars From Spain a call.

Hey Eduardo! Sorry, it took time. The guitar sounds GREAT ....love playing it. I have done about 10 gigs with it. It sounds full, every string comes through, the playability is nice, Super impressed with the LR BAGGS best pickups I've heard. I just hope this guitar lasts me along time.I don't see myself changing for years to come.(unless I get very rich )..so thanks again! Lucas PS 80 C/E

Hola Eduardo! Quiero expresarte mi agradecimiento por haber recibido un trato tan maravilloso durante la adquisición de mi primera guitarra. Tu pasión por la música es verdaderamente impresionante y eso convierte la experiencia de adquirir un instrumento tan hermoso como la guitarra en algo muy especial e inolvidable. Gracias una vez más por tu atención tan espectacular. Adrina Perez .

A few months ago, after not playing guitar over 3 decades, I decided to get a nice guitar to start playing again.
I was initially going to buy a used Milago R1 locally in San Francisco. But when I started doing a great deal of research on that guitar on the internet, I stumbled onto the GuitarsfromSpain website where I could get a brand new one at about the same price as the used one. Not knowing whether this is a legitimate site, I decided to call the store. I called a few times (I did not leave any messages) before the store owner, Edwardo, answered my call from Spain. He told me briefly about the guitar and asked that I waited for him to come back from Spain so that he could tell me more about his business and the guitar.
After he came back to Florida a couple of weeks later, I had a couple more calls with him to talk about the guitar in question and the purchase process. It was these conversations with him that made me feel at ease to place the order to purchase the guitar because he appeared to be very knowledgeable and cared deeply about providing great customer service.
After placing the order and during shipping, he was in constant contact with me daily and when I did not receive the guitar on time because for some reason, FedEx could not locate the guitar in their warehouse. He was on top of the situation and dealt with Fed Ex directly. Needless to say, I received my guitar quickly afterward and it is a great guitar as he advertised.
In summary, Edwardo is a great seller and highly recommended!!! Kevin - San Francisco

Hello Eduardo: The guitar arrived safely today. My initial impression is that the Vincente Carrillo (2017) has a beautiful timbre, tone, and intonation, and is well-balanced from bass to treble (no relatively 'dead' strings, unlike flamenco guitars I've played up until now. I love those guitars regardless!
The Carrillo can whisper, cry, and shout; exactly what I was looking for. The guitar and I are only in the first stage of becoming familiar, but I know from experience (having played for 69 years, starting with steel guitar at age 5) that I'm going to love this one in particular--and it's probably my last ...
Thank you for your prompt service, professional shipping & packaging, excellent communications, clear instructions, and for delivering the guitar you advertised. It's clear why you're a 5-star Spanish guitar sales maestro (and judging by your YouTube videos, you're also an excellent guitarist :-)!Thanks again! Gary Croft

"It was a truly wonderful experience buying a guitar from Eduardo...he made me feel totally comfortable, but absolutely no pressure on me and even gave me some wonderful performance tips along the way! I would definitely enjoy working with him in the future..." Stay in touch and great meeting you and your puppy Franky! Ricard Schonberg, Sedona
Ricard Schon September 26, 2019
Getting a guitar from Eduardo was a breeze. I was pleasantly surprised by the guitar selection process: I gave Eduardo my price range and after that, we didn’t talk about prices any more until I had selected the guitar I like the most. Thank you very much, Eduardo!Antoni Alvarez Granada Flamenca Negra C/E

My name is David. I am a classical guitar performance major at Florida Atlantic University. I recently purchased a Prudencio Saez Flamenco Blanca guitar from Mr. Eduardo Macadar. He provides an outstanding service to his customers. I was able to get an appointment with him within four hours of contact via telephone. I was given his current inventory and suggestions for instruments that would fit into my budget which I could view on the website. Eduardo was able to demonstrate the instruments pros, and cons with his playing skills. He patiently took the time to allow me to thoroughly try each instrument until I could decide which one was best for me. He provided me with instructions on how to take the best care of the instrument as possible, and also gave me some accessories. If you are a guitar player who would like to buy a performance level instrument I would highly recommend contacting Guitars From Spain. David Bungarz

Eduardo - I was looking for some information about classical guitars when I called Guitars from Spain. I had no intention of buying a guitar that day. What I got was an invitation for a meeting and found a specialist who was more informative and helpful than being with the finest tailor. I was welcomed into a process of the most thorough and intelligent review of the several guitars in my range of ability and price. No question went unanswered, no time was too long to help me select the guitar that was right for me. I got what I had hoped for, and even more. There was no pressure to buy that day. What a relief. Better yet, when I did decide to buy, Eduardo took the extra time to set it up for my needs and even provided a little time of instruction to send me on my way with a new appreciation for the beauty of the classical guitar and a few skills to play even better. I highly recommend Eduardo, G F S when you consider a classical guitar - he offers so much more than just a simple purchase.
January 4, 2019
Dear Ed; Absolutely no regrets about this fine instrument. The workmanship is truly superb. Sounds fantastic and plays like butter. Thanks a million for the great service. By the way do you carry guitar strings and capos etc? Again, thank you so much, and I hope we can do more business in the future. Yours Tom Crawley PS G36 Flam.

Hello Eduardo, Thank you, I must say that the entire experience with yourself and Guitars From Spain has been awesome. Answering a business line as you're about to perform before 250 people, now that's service. I was very impressed with your genuine concern that I choose the right guitar for my experience level and type of music played, the courtesy and respect you deliver is appreciated. The prompt shipment and on time delivery as promised was refreshing. My beautiful Prudencio Saez PS-34 arrived in perfect condition, it truly is a work of art! The case is luxurious and fits like a glove. The extra strings and other gifts were a pleasant surprise. I would highly recommend Eduardo and Guitars From Spain to everybody, it is the right choice! God Bless, David G Brown

As a professional musician and collector I am very particular about my inventory. I must say my experience with Eduardo GFS was Top Shelf.. Thank You for a wonderful guitar. A Sarraz
December 22, 2018
I would like to extend my gratitude and thanks to Eduardo at Guitars from Spain for his help over the last 10 years providing me several classical guitars. The selection is top notch from lower priced to magnificent upper level models. Being a Professor of Classical Guitar, The Bourget, Carrillo and Juan Hernandez guitars I bought were all excellent instruments of different characteristics. The hybrid flamenco/classical that I play now, I am thrilled to play all day long. My more than dozen students that have come to Eduardo all are happy with their guitars! I recommend everyone see Eduardo or pick up a guitar from GFSpain. Honestly, he only has quality instruments! I have tried many models that he has. Thanks again, Eduardo! Thomas Glenn Smith, MA

Thank you, Eduardo for my new guitar. I love it. The action is great and it has a nice growl to it. The case is perfect, and the two guitar covers and extra bone were very nice too.. I can’t wait to play it and hear it open up over the next few years. In case you haven’t heard, we’ve had two nor’easters here in the past 5 days, so I went and picked it up today from the FedEx hub, that is why delivery took so long. Totally worth the wait though. Thanks again, Eduardo. Take care. I’ll be emailing/calling with questions I’ll have in the future about the guitar, and possibly obtaining more guitars. Paul Schindo Montreal .... Eduardo, This morning I had my flamenco lesson. My teacher, Carlos Rubio(don’t know if you’ve heard of him), told me how great a deal I got getting my new PS 22 blanca from you. He told me right away that it is a nice PROFESSIONAL guitar, and couldn’t believe the case you add.. He was very impressed, and he is a guy that has been playing professionally for 50 years and has 6 Pedro de Miguel guitars. Thank you for your hard work and honesty and for working with me to get me the best guitar I possibly could get. I absolutely love everything about it. It even smells amazing! I wish you nothing but the best and hope all your dreams come true. Paul Schindo,

Dear EdMac; The Prudencio Saez Negra P24 flamenco guitar I ordered arrived here in New Zealand in undamaged condition and in good time I am pleased with the appearance, the nice rosewood etc, and it gives the bass real depth, good for Tarantos and those deep chords.The case is excellent, sturdy and light .

Dear Ed Mac,Indeed, I received the requinto last Friday, thank you very much for the fast shipment. The requinto arrived in perfect condition and it is everything I had expected, I am very happy and extremely motivated to start practicing "Rayito de Luna", "Los Dos", "Sin Ti", "Contigo", "No Me Quieras Tanto", "La Malagueña", "Sin Un Amor", "Me Voy Pal' Pueblo", "Ni Que Si, Ni Quiza, Ni Que No" y muchas mas que hicieron de nuestro Mexico un recuerdo maravilloso e inovlidable al escuchar todas estas melodias de amor y especialmente en un requinto tal como el que me habeis proveido.

Senor EDUARDO, I have just received my Amalio Burguet 3M guitar in very excellent shape. Beautiful guitar with abeautiful sound. At age 76, this would be an excellent guitar for me to start my guitar lessons. Thanks for your OUTSTANDING SUPPORT and follow-up. I would strongly recommend your store to anyone wanting to buy a guitar on-line. HONEST DEPENDABLE SERVICE.
A VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER.

I had recently decided to learn to play the guitar but was wasn't sure I could. I fractured my left wrist a few years ago, limiting my flexibility. On a visit to my daughter in Boca Raton, I phoned Eduardo Macadar of Guitars for Spain. He is a very friendly and enthusiastic person and thought he had some guitars that might fit the bill. I drove over and he had already put out an assortment of several guitars, all different from each other. I listened to him play them all, then tried them all myself to evaluate the comfort, fit and sound. I absolutely fell in love with the Paco Castillo 233 cutaway, narrow body Flamenco guitar with electric option available. I had not considered a guitar like this at all, but it was very light and just felt incredibly comfortable, so I bought it. It was a pleasure to deal with Eduardo. There was never any pressure and he always patiently and completely answered my many questions. He also gave me some very valuable pointers in posture and hand position. I asked if he would mind moving up to New Jersey to be my teacher but shoveling snow did not appeal to him. I may have to move to Boca. For now I plan on taking one or more lessons from him whenever I visit. Rich Anscher

"I recently traveled to Boca Raton from Boston to meet with Eduardo and to explore buying a new guitar. I was not disappointed. He had identified a range of incredible instruments and then guided me through a process of playing them in different orders in order to determine objectively which guitar felt the best in my hands and sounded the best to my ears. We settled on an incredible Milagro guitar which I am in love with now and am enjoying thoroughly every day.In addition to the purchase of such an amazing guitar, the best I could have possibly found, I benefited greatly during my visit from Eduardo’s insights into guitar playing, the care of the guitar, some new stringing tips, and some ideas of technique. Anyone seriously interested in classical guitar at any level could benefit from visiting Eduardo’s studio and experiencing his range of wonderful guitars.” Chris

I love my new Flamenca Blanca, the price was great and the customer service was amazing! Eduardo really knows his stuff - I would not have been able to find an instrument like this in any of the local music stores. Highly recommended! Thank you J Goldstein
December 22, 2017
Eduardo; I've been playing my guitar since day one , this is a wonderful instrument!
Thank you for helping me find the perfect guitar for my hands .It feels great.
I may need a flamenco guitar soon , I'll keep in touch. John M, Miami

If you want to buy top quality flamenco or classic guitars go to this place, excellent instruments, excellent people, I bought two amazing guitars from Guitars From Spain, great price, great costumer service, Eduardo is a great guy, he know very well his stuff, I didn't find guitars like this in any other store, I really recommended!
December 22, 2017
I’ve had the pleasure of purchasing various guitars (classical and flamenco) from Eduardo at GFS. My experience each time, from the initial discussion on what I was looking for, to trying out the various guitars Eduardo picked out for me, to the final setup of the guitar at time of purchase has always been top notch and a complete pleasure. His extensive knowledge in the instrument and the understanding we had, as one guitar player to another, of what I was looking for in a guitar is what will make me seek him out when I am ready to purchase my next guitar. Best regardsJC Rodríguez

Eduardo; la guitarra ( PS59) suena excepcionalmente bien, la probé con mi amplificador y oye fuerte de verdad.

My P. Saez 22 “Flamenco Blanca” arrived yesterday. I spent the evening playing it. Truly a joy ! It has a rich sound, even across all strings. The bass is strong and the guitar also has that satisfying bark and snap that you would want in a flamenco guitar. It is well crafted and visually appealing. I am very pleased with this instrument ! Thanks

Ever since I was refereed to Eduardo from a music colleague of mine, I have found him and GFS a source that not only has the quality of instruments, but more so has an enormous passion to find the right instrument for its clients. So far through my career as a professional guitarist, I have purchased 3 guitars from GFS/ Eduardo, and I honestly have to say that they are all very special instruments. Quality, Honesty and Very Clean and Clear Business is what comes to mind when I think of my experiences with GFS. I also love that Eduardo sells his guitar covers ( Ultimate Guitar Protector ) that really make the difference when protecting your guitar while playing! These covers are perfect in protecting from dust, small dings, and your body's natural oils (in the case of a quick inspiring moment out of bed and the need to play haha...) I highly recommend GFS to anyone looking for good quality instrument worth your money!
November 26, 2017
Ed, You were very helpful in directing me to your videos, and based on those videos, I selected the Manuel Adalid 11 with a spruce top. You explained to me that the sound in the videos is as neutral and accurate as possible, but if I didn’t like the guitar, I could return it. After receiving the guitar, I can’t imagine anyone not liking it. It has a very refined, elegant sound, with great clarity, and is also easy to play. In addition, it is a great counterpart to my cedar topped guitar, and it lets me get different sounds with different pieces, and just adds more variety to my playing. I would definitely buy another guitar from you.Yours, Ed Rose
November 20, 2017
I can’t thank you enough. The guitar arrived in perfect condition and your attention to detail was much appreciated. The case, the extra set of strings, the guitar protection was so professional and welcomed. I would love to visit your store for my next purchase. I will recommend your store to everyone looking to purchase a quality guitar from company that cares for its customers. Esteve 9 C/B Thanks, Al V. Al Velieri

Hello Ed, The Vicente Carrillo Alegrias Negra is a beautiful guitar and everything I was looking for in regard to tone and quality. It has a sweet resonant sound that really makes the guitar sing and a pure flamenco sound as well. It makes it a great fit for a guitarist who plays classical and flamenco at a great price. Thank you for your quick responses and all your help in buying this guitar. I would welcome the chance to do business with you again! Louie-Birmingham, AL

Hi Ed,The PS54 just arrived and it is very nice. Sure looks like a well made piece. I really like it. I practiced with it a bit I'm kind of a beginner and thought it was really nice. The finish, etc, almost looks too perfect. It's like a painting. Very nice to look at and the book matching is impressive. My instructor my guitar; really put it through its paces and said it sounded fabulous. I'm very happy with it. Steve Rule England

Hi Eduardo,I hope this message finds you well. Went to bed VERY late, staying up to play my new flamenco guitar. It is absolutely more than what I expected. You found me a lot of guitar for a very reasonable price. I normally don't buy an instrument unless I get a chance to at it first. However, you've earned my trust. The PS36 is a amazing guitar. I'm sending my students to you FIRST. I know they won't be disappointed! Also, please feel free to use this letter as a review of this guitar and your excellent service. Warmest regards, Luciano 'Chano' Suarez , Durham, NC

Thank you very much for the follow up email. I am sorry I have not been able to get back to you since I've been really busy at work. I have not had time to play the guitar much but the little I have, I can tell you I am very happy with it already and I even more so, I am sincerely glad to have bought it from you again. Everything has been perfect, this is the second guitar I have from you and I am extremely pleased with both of them and your customer service as well your responsiveness. I hope we continue to do business and thank you again. Some day if I am in your area I hope to stop by your shop, if you do not mind, and be able to shake your hand. Sincerely, Guillermo Castro

Hello Eduardo, I'd like to thank you for all of your help with my purchase of the Requinto 201 that I bought for my father. My father loved it. Words couldn't describe how good it made me feel to give him such a beautiful gift. He plays it every day and continues to tell me how nice and clear it sounds. You were a great help with all your knowledge on your product. Thank you again. I couldn't have given him such a beautiful gift without your help. I'd definitely recommend my friends or anyone who is looking for a excellent quality guitar that sounds incredible to GFS. I will definitely keep in touch with you. Thanks again, Jose Vazquez

Estimado Eduardo: La guitarra Prudencio Saez Modelo 15 es unica!, muy sonora, una belleza, y sumamente muy manejable. Continuo desarrollando mis destrezas con ella y me siento feliz de haberla adquirido. No es la primera que he tenido de Don Prudencio, y se que no sera la ultima, pues su nombre ha sido siempre sinonimo de calidad, sonoridad, y belleza. Pienso en el futuro en la 22 y en la G36. En su momento me comunicare! Mi opinion siempre sera que las mejores guitarras son las espanolas y el nombre mas respetado en su produccion: Prudencio Saez! Su servidor, Adolfo Gonzalez, Puerto Rico

I recently purchased an Esteve classical guitar, with a cedar/carbon fiber top from Guitars from Spain that out performs so many handmade guitars, and paid 1/2 of the price that you would pay for a handmade Spanish guitar. The tone, sustain and balance of that guitar are just about as great as you can get. I highly recommend Guitars From Spain to anyone looking for nylon string guitars as well as the best of guitar accessories at very reasonable prices. Islay Rodriguez Est 7C/B

Eduardo, I just wanted to say, “Thank you”, from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful Prudencio Saez PS 20 Walnut guitar that came last week. I’ve had many, many guitars over the 53 years I’ve been playing, and this is by far the most beautiful. The walnut back and sides, rosewood neck and trim and cedar top all combine perfectly to make a lovely instrument. The feel of the neck is great, and easy to commandeer. Even the smell of the cedar is fantastic! John Walden NZ

Dear Ed,I hope this finds you well. I just wanted to let you know, I received my Prudencio Saez 33 a few days ago, and I am impressed with the sound and beauty of this instrument. I am starting to play Classical Guitar again, after a few years hiatus, and I could not be happier. Your attention to details, genuine concern toward my needs, and great customer service is exceptional. As we talked, the fact that you also are a guitar player and loves the instrument makes a big difference. I will certainly recommend Guitars from Spain to my friends and acquaintances looking for a great guitar and an exceptional support. Thanks again!! Luis Pina

Ed - My PS G-11 arrived in perfect condition today. My wife said the FedEx driver was very careful handling the box. The guitar looks great. It is a mile above my old student model. As inexpert as I am, I can tell with just a few notes that this is a great instrument: The sound is balanced across all the strings and frets. Bass is strong but not boomy. This guitar provides me a wonderful incentive to improve my playing. Thanks for your advice, and super guitar! Best regards, Adam Carr, Potts Camp MS

Hi Ed; I got the Esteve 8F today, its amazing and the sound is fabulous. I am more than happy dealing with your company and with you in person.

Hi Eduardo, I am having a great time with my new Prudencio Saez 18 Flamenco Negra. The guitar sounds great with a balanced dark and resonant timbre, alternative to the traditional bright Flamenco Timbre you find in Blancas. The time, patience and dedication you gave me at your studio ,helped me out choosing this outstanding guitar among the very selected and unique inventory you have in terms of quality, brands and variety of sounds, was the key factor for the great choice I made. Thanks for everything, Alvaro Jose Franco. FL
August 18, 2016
Eduardo, THANK YOU!…... So much for the 1st class treatment you have given me in purchasing my new baby, the Paco Castillo thin body 233 FTE, and as of this time the only one dealer in the United States. Your honesty and professionalism made it easy for me to purchase without any worries. She arrived in perfect shape, and after playing her it was a match made in heaven . I honestly cannot keep my hands off her, she sounds and plays so good. Eduardo, your business ethics and passion for quality guitars is admirable and I would recommend you to anyone interested in Spanish guitars. If your ever in California and traveling thru the high desert between Las Vegas and Los Angeles, lunch is on me! Thanks again for being such a gentleman. Adrian Munoz CA

I recently purchased a Jose Ramirez Flamenco guitar from Eduardo at his studio in Boca Raton Fl. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase and the guitar is so enjoyable to play, I seem to loose track of time every time I pick this instrument up. I've been unsuccessfully searching for a quality guitar reasonably priced here in south Florida for quite some time. Finally I found "Guitars from Spain". What really impressed me is every guitar Eduardo has in inventory is an exceptional instrument. After seeing a couple of the guitars I knew one was going home with me, just a matter of which one. Thanks, Bryan Phillips

On a recent trip to Europe, I had the opportunity to play a Paco Castillo guitar. It is one of the finest guitars I have ever played. They are made in Spain by Lucas and Juan Julia.
They are primarily sold in Europe. There is only one guitar dealer in the United States. Guitars from Spain, in Boca Raton, Florida, just started bringing the Paco Castillo guitar line to the U.S.
I ordered and received the guitar this past Monday. The guitar plays and looks wonderful. Interesting, the owner of Guitars from Spain, was traveling through the west and stopped at the house. His name is Eduardo Macadar and we spent time playing the guitar. We had a great time. GFS sells Classical and Flamenco guitars. Eduardo is truly a master at playing the guitar. I would highly recommend his company if your are looking for a classical or flamenco guitar. P Castillo 203C/e Rich Qualls

Ed, Thanks so much for everything! The g Esteve Cocobolo sounds incredible! The sound is actually superior to guitars that I've payed twice the price for. I did a side by side comparison, and it's the truth. Thanks very much for bringing such great quality guitars here to the States! And thanks for the advice. Best regards, Islay Rodriguez , FL

Eduardo, I just wanted to say, "Thank you", from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful Prudencio Saez PS 20 Walnut guitar that came last week. I've had many, many guitars over the 53 years I've been playing, and this is by far the most beautiful. The walnut back and sides, rosewood neck and trim and cedar top all combine perfectly to make a lovely instrument. The feel of the neck is great, and easy to commandeer. Even the smell of the cedar is fantastic!
But by far, the great feature is the sound. There's both and warmth and a brightness to the refraction of the sound waves from the walnut that is a pure delight. The rich, clear tones are held and sustained, so you'd better not make many mistakes!
The biggest surprise was what a blessing it was to work with you and your store. The advice was sound (no pun intended!) and you handled things perfectly. You held on to the guitar once you knew I was interested, even though others later voiced interest, and when I purchased it, it was shipped off the same day. The case kept the guitar perfectly, which was amazing to me. I never though something this light could be so sturdy. It arrived at my house in 2 days, and sounded glorious right out of the box.So thank you and GuitarsfromSpain.com for a truly wonderful experience. Sincerely, Edward Gross

Dear Ed ,I am really happy with my new Manuel Adalid 11 guitar and especially satisfied with your outstanding service and expert advice in the process of choosing the right instrument for me. I really enjoyed the process of playing your extensive selection of fine instruments at your studio, a nice and quite environment that allowed me to experience all the nuances of each instrument until I played mine, and instantly fell in love with it. Thanks for your continuous, courteous and very professional follow-up in the process of setting-up and customizing the instrument to my style of playing. I am highly satisfied with the whole experience, your expert and personal advice and won't hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends looking for a fine guitar and most of all, for an outstanding professional service.

Gracias Eduardo por el exelente servicio que ofrecen a sus clientes. Recibi la guitarra "Granada" sumamente rapido. Esta guitarra tiene un sonido diafano y potente como una guitarra de mas renombre. Por eso si alguien desea tener una guitarra como esta a un precio modico con estuche y un set adicional de cuerdas, esa es la guitara. Victor Luna
( Translation ) Thank you Eduardo for the excellent service you provide to your clients. I received the Granada Guitar very fast . This guitar has a almost transparent sound ( diaphanous ) and powerful like a more famous ,expensive guitar.. If anybody wants to have a guitar within this price range, with a hard shell case and set of strings , this is the way to go . Victor Luna

"Hello Eduardo. I recently purchased your Ultimate Guitar Protector for my Esteve 8F, and I am very pleased with it. My primary reason for purchasing the Ultimate Guitar Protector was to have worry free handling of my new flamenco guitar. Another big plus I noticed is that the guitar is much easier to hold in the right thigh / upright position I prefer using that is similar to some flamenco guitar players like legendary Diego del Gastor. Ultimate Guitar Protector should be a standard accessory for classical, flamenco and acoustic guitar players. I will be ordering more Ultimate Guitar Protectors for my other guitars, and appreciate your fast and professional service. Best regards, Daniel Gastelu,

Received the guitar. A beautiful guitar. With powerful bass, timbre clear and balanced between bass and treble. Very soft to the touch. The finish is flawless. I appreciate all your efforts. Is very good buy with accessories . When you visit Brazil, come to me that I will have the pleasure of welcoming you in Curitiba, a beautiful city in southern Brazil. Thank You PS G-11 Pedro Cesar

Your packing was admirable the guitar arrived in perfect condition. It is a beautifully crafted piece, truly built by a talented craftsman. I have inspected it thoroughly, tuned it last night and had a difficult time to put it down. Immediately one notices the sustain, you could drink a cup of tea during that time.. The guitar “feels” perfect, its light but strong when you hold it. I know as it is played more and the woods age it will only grow sweeter but it already posses a signature voice.Love it, Roger Jensen PS 34 Pao Ferro

Ever since I was refereed to Eduardo from a music colleague of mine, I have found him and GFS a source that not only has the quality of instruments, but more so has an enormous passion to find the right instrument for its clients. So far through my career as a professional guitarist, I have purchased 3 guitars from Eduardo, and I honestly have to say that they are all very special instruments. Quality, Honesty and Very Clean and Clear Business is what comes to mind when I think of my experiences with GFS. I also love that Eduardo sells his guitar covers that really make the difference when protecting your guitar while playing! These covers are perfect in protecting from dust, small dings, and your body's natural oils I highly recommend GFS to anyone looking for good quality instrument worth your money! Carlos Andrade

It arrived in good order today; beautiful instrument! I'll know better in a week or so how it plays.
Thanks for your email and phone message. I decided I will retire from work in February. Preparing for that has taken up all of my spare time, so I will have to spend more time with my new guitar . It's obviously a beautiful instrument, the tone is lovely. Thank you. PS 33 Tim McGreg

Hi Ed, The Vicente Carrillo Alegrias India Flamenca arrived safely and very quickly. I was pleasantly surprised to have it delivered in just one day. After spending a few hours with it, I am very pleased with this guitar. It is quite a good looking instrument with very nice materials and an excellent build quality. It has a perfect flamenco set up with very low action and is quite comfortable to play. The guitar can sound warm and sweet but when played aggressively, it can be quite percussive and very flamenco. Overall, a very versatile guitar. I'm sure its tonal qualities will improve as it gets more playing time. Thank you for your time and patience in finding the right flamenca negra for me.Cheers, Nick DeVincentis

Prezado Ed Mac ; Recebi a guitarra Prudêncio Saez 22 em perfeitas condições. Ela é uma guitarra muito leve. Isso já mostra a qualidade da madeira. O tampo de abeto e sendo o fundo e laterais de cipreste deixam o som muito bonito. Um som brilhante e os baixos muito potentes. O case de carregar a guitarra da marca Cibeles além de muito prático, protege muito bem a guitarra. O veludo azul protege do mal tempo e do frio. Para mim é novidade aquele protetor do tampo do violão, de tecido preto. Nunca tinha visto. E também a vantagem é que veio um jogo de cordas (strings)novo. Por ser cordas de violão flamenco é difícil de achar no Brasil. Aqui no Brasil, violões desta qualidade é raro. Somente em luthiers. Enfim o violão é muito bom, o case muito prático e leve e grato pelo encordoamento. Estou apreciando muito tocar nesta guitarra e como estudo guitarra clássica, meu objetivo é desenvolver a técnica espanhola do flamenco. Obrigado pelo envio. Pedro César Pereira , Curitiba,Brazil
Dear Eduardo I received the Prudencio Saez 22 guitar in perfect condition. It is a very light guitar, that shows the wood quality. The Spruce top and the Cypress back & sides make the sound very beautiful. A brilliant sound and strong bass. The Cibeles hard shell case is very practical , and protects the guitar very well. The velvet cover really protects the guitar from temperature changes. This accessory is something new for me and very practical as well. It is an advantage that separate new string set comes with the guitar, Flamenco strings are very difficult to get in Brazil. In Brazil it's very difficult to find guitars of this quality, only with Luthiers. Bottom line, the guitar is very nice , the case is very practical and the extra strings set is great. I'm really enjoying playing this guitar , I'm studying classical guitar , but my goal is to develop a Spanish Flamenco Technic. Thank you for the shipping.Curitiba,Brazil .

Hi Ed, the guitar arrived well and survived a horrible winter storm during its transit. My compliments on how carefully well it was packed! I took it out of the case late last night… once it was all quiet and played some granaina falsetas with it I enjoyed clarity in the trebles, which brings out definition to the strings and has a balance to the sound. It's basses are strong, yet not overpowering. Being an negra, its voicing is such that it projects easily and strongly and provides a colorful tonal character. Simply one of the best Conde guitars I have ever played. The action setting is perfect! Overall, an awesome flamenco negra guitar! I am very happy with it! Thanks a bunch! Rafael Calderon CA
